Handmade Women's 100% Pure Sustainable Silk Co Ord Set in Sky Blue
Women's sustainable pure silk co ord set in sky blue by Rare & Fair. Ethically handmade by Thai artisans using 100% pure mulberry silk, handwoven on traditional wooden looms. The use of hand-reeled silk thread creates a natural rustic appearance, adding delicate texturing to the fabric.
The silk two piece set can be worn together or individually and combines a pair of cropped wide-leg trousers and a tie-shoulder top. The silk trousers are high waisted with a removable self tie waistband and side pockets. The silk top provides a comfortable fit, with adjustable shoulder ties and an invisible zipper on one side.
The choice is yours to wear the look up or down, team with pointed toe heels for that sleek appearance, or casually with a pair of sandals. All work together beautifully!
Our lovely model, Toma, is wearing size S or UK8. Her measurements are: Height 5'7", Bust 32.5", Waist 24", Hips 35"
The pure silk fabric used to craft The Dawn Co Ord Set in Sky Blue is 100% handmade by rural villagers in Pak Thong Chai, Nakhon Ratchasima province. From the raising of the silkworms, the hand-reeling of the silk threads and finally to the hand weaving of the yarns on a traditional loom to create the finished product.
Hand-reeled silk threads, known among Thais as “Mai Baan” (translating to ‘homemade silk’), come with a slightly more natural, rugged appearance. When weaved into textile, it gives a unique finish to the pure silk – a variation in texture that is noticeably different from silk produced from machine-made yarns; acting as an authenticity mark to these traditional, slow, hand-reeled methods. By purchasing this beautiful two piece silk set, not only are you encouraging pride in traditional hand weaving techniques among our local artisans, but you also help to spread income to rural villagers, too. Thank you!
To ensure your item retains its charm and beauty for many years to come, we recommend the following:
Take care to avoid extreme heat and direct sunlight when drying or storing the product as this may cause colour fading and/or shrinkage. We recommend storing the product in a cool, shaded and dry place at all times.
Dry-Clean only. For extra care we recommend gentle dry-clean with hydrocarbon solvents, however, general dry-clean is also possible.
As with all natural/hand dyed products, some colour variation within and between items is normal. Natural/hand dyed products will always bleed slightly when wet, so please follow cleaning instructions carefully.
Please note, all fabrics woven by hand may come with small knots, yarn pulls or short pieces of thread – these irregularities do not affect the quality or future durability of the product. We feel these irregularities only add to the uniqueness and individualism of our products.
