Painted on silk habotai, this is a lovely lightweight blouse in blacks, reds, silver grey and blues etc. It has buttons doewn the fron t and at the cuff and must be handwashed to retain the crushed effect . You tie it into a tight ball with some ribbon or string when still dampand dry naturally. No ironing – great for travelling. A ‘fashionable roman lady’ as found in the British Museum is on the back.
