PRODUCT INFORMATION

The ‘Botanical – Brisbane’ is a stunning Hydrangea print.  The hydrangeas contain a range of pinks (from soft pink to plum).  There are also charcoal blooms which is great for coordinating with darker colours.  It’s such a clever element of the design.  The print also features stunning frangipanis, and as the background is an off-white, the frangipanis really ‘pop’. 

It is pretty special fabric, and perfect for summer - for cool and flowing dresses, skirts, wide leg trousers or tops - but also for blouses and shirts in the cooler months.  It creases a little, but I don’t think it does as much as a 100% linen.  It is 140cm wide, reasonable light, but a bit heavier than a quality oxford cotton shirting (it’s approx. 145/150gsm).  It is so soft and cool against the skin, and the drape is amazing. It’s washable by hand or (at own risk) on a very delicate, cool, machine wash cycle (in a mesh washing bag).

For your cloth edit consider:  semi-fitted or looser shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. wrap, fit and flare, tunic, shirt dresses), skirts (eg. wrap, midi, gathered, pleated).  It would be great in pants or shorts also.

Cloth Care:

The general advice is to Dry Clean silk, but this is only 10% Silk and so you could certainly hand wash this fabric.  If you risk machine washing (at own risk) then use a gentle detergent such as a baby shampoo or specialist silk detergent as the chemicals and bleach in regular washing liquids and powders may damage the silk.  Use a mesh washing bag. For hand-washing and machine washing use cool water.  Hot water is harmful to the silk fibre.  Do not bleach, wring, or tumble dry. Do not spot clean silk.  Wash colours separately.   Wash inside out and dry flat or on a soft finish hanger in shade.  Use a warm iron and spot test.
