Fabric

Secondary fabric: 100% cupro | Main fabric: 82% viscose, 18% silk

Did you know?

Silk: Is known for its softness and comfort and beautiful draping and lustre. A natural fibre, it dyes easily and so is especially known for its vibrant hues. While luxurious and soft, it is very strong and because it is absorbent it is warm to wear in the winter as well as cool in the summer. Depending on how it's been treated, it may need to be dry cleaned, hand washed, or could be machine washable so please read the care instructions.

Viscose: used to be known as 'artificial silk' because like silk it has superb drape, is soft to the skin and can be dyed in rich colours. A man-made fabric, it's made from wood pulp and blends easily. You will often find it blended with other fabrics to add softness, lustre or absorbency (it's highly absorbent and so cool to wear in the summer).

Velvet: this elegant fabric is made by adding additional threads during the weaving process which are then cut to create a pile with an extremely soft surface. All pile depths up to 3 mm are referred to as velvet.

Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.

Wonderful light, pleasant part. Very nice ethnic embroidery on the back in warm colours. Good arm length and length, beautiful neckline. Voted 42-44 for my 48 and it fits perfectly. Possible addition I have scarf with Ethnoprint article no. 54458 with similar color game ordered.

Original customer review

Wundervoll leichtes, angenehmes Teil. Sehr schöne Ethno-Stickerei am Rücken in warmen Farben. Gute Armlänge und Länge, schöner Halsausschnitt. Habe 42-44 für meine 48 gewählt und es passt perfekt. Zur möglichen Ergänzung habe ich den Schal mit Ethnoprint Artikelnr. 54458 mit ähnlichem Farbspiel bestellt.

Great, extraordinary shirt. The velvet is noble and the embroidered back is an eye-catcher. Unfortunately, the part way too big and no longer is available in my size. I could separate myself but didn't and won't make it close.

Original customer review

Tolles, aussergewöhnliches Shirt. Der Samt wirkt edel und der gestickte Rücken ist ein Hingucker. Leider ist das Teil viel zu gross und nicht mehr in meiner Grösse verfügbar. Ich konnte mich aber nicht davon trennen und werde es enger machen lassen.
