Bohemian ahhhhhmazingness! Stunning colors on a carmel base with to-die-for deep purple silk fringe. Fabric is rayon burnout velvet with a gorgeous sheer effect. Fringe is 100% silk! Meant to be worn slouchy, belted or pinned. Shown on a sz 2 model...recommended up to sz 12.
Bust goes up to 44", shoulder 19", length 21" - 31"(including fringe).

The velvet burnout process, or "Dévoré" as it is also referred, is achieved by applying an acid to a natural, protein fiber (silk) and natural non-protein fiber (rayon). The acid "burns out" the non-protein fiber leaving only the sheer woven silk and hence, creating elaborate and intricate designs. This fabrics is of the highest quality, and is very expensive to manufacture.
The art deco designs on the shawls used to make these beauties are based on 1920s prints and give an amazing stained glass glow when backlit. The silk part of the fabric becomes very sheer, almost transparent. Often referred to as "wearable art", I promise that once you lay your hands on one of these, you will not ever want to take it off.

Rayon velvet burnout
100% silk fringe
Dry clean only

I steam each piece individually before shipping but of course during the travel process it's bound to get wrinkled so for best results steam (especially fringe) to get them really straight and flowing beautifully.
