THRIFTED_and_MODERN 's Thoughts:

Stunning 1920s art deco-inspired burnout velvet silk kimono/ caftan jacket with fringe/ tassel trim. Sheer silk fabric. Unlined. Hangs open, no closure.

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.

Our art deco designs on our dusters 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. They are all unlined and do not close in front. I promise that once you lay your hands on one of these, you will not ever want to take it off.

Details:
Color: Beige / Multicolor
Fabric: 80% Silk 20% Rayon / Beads
Bust: Free
Waist: Free
Total Length: 45.5"
