I printed my own Pussy-Willows pattern into white silk-velvet, creating a texture called "devorè" or burn-out velvet. The fabric is shear silk dyed a dark grey to black tone with, an all-over velvet pattern hand-painted in a water color effect, with more dyes in black, green and purple, in a water color effect.
• Washable: This shawl was pre-rinsed as part of the dying and hand-painting process. A cold, gentle cycle will make it softer. A hot dryer will make it fluffier.
• One size:
Once the fabric is made, it is sewn together into this simple kimono slip-on, wrap style, with rolled-edges hems. It Measures 33 inches for a nice cover-up length. It can be dressed down with jeans or worn to dress up a simple outfit.
• 50% silk 50% rayon:
All natural materials makes for an incredible drape that is luxuriously soft.
