Features + Benefits
- In search of the perfect, day-to-night spring-summer cover-up, we partnered with an advanced Indonesian print-house who specializes in Japanese printing techniques, and a group of master Balinese sewers. Together, we chose rayon chiffon as our fabric, which is an increasingly popular material for its luxurious texture and multi-functional use. We combined this carefully selected fabric with traditional batik-inspired prints and a spectrum of color pops.
- Useful piece for many occasions including beach, resort, office, spring, summer, fall, day or night events, and lounge.
- Compact and versatile - great for travel.
- Easy care, easy wear. Feels really good on the body.
- Double front pockets strong and big enough for hand resting and essentials.
- Soft fabric allows for gentle draping, while maintaining shape and structure.
- Wide arm openings to fit most bodies with added ventilation.
- Long line, with gentle side slits giving the vest movement and comfort.
- Easy cover up for long sleeves, short sleeves, and no sleeves underneath.
- Made with rayon chiffon, an increasingly popular material for its luxurious texture and multi-functional use. Rayon chiffon is more absorptive and thinner than cotton, which makes for a lightweight and quick dry fabric.
- Semi-mesh weave gives the fabric a chic transparency, while staying sturdy and multi-use. The word chiffon refers to this fabric's weave, which is a fine mesh, making for a silky, floaty texture.
- The sister to silk, rayon chiffon offers the advantage of silk's hand feel but without silk's delicate challenges. Rayon chiffon is much easier to manage and care for than silk.
- This rayon chiffon fabric will keep your skin cool in warm weather, and the garment will provide added sun protection.
