Grown-On Sleeve Blouse Mandarin Duck

$179.00

Jo and YY really like this print! Matched with this dark shade of pink, you should be a welcomed guest at any CNY gathering. Pairs of mandarin ducks have traditionally been used as symbols of conjugal affection and fidelity (Wikipedia). We like them because they are pretty. 

Fit Suggestion:

  • This is a straight/comfort fit, and we suggest picking a size that is about 2” bigger than your actual chest measurement. Please also check and make sure that you are happy with the length and hem circumference too.
  • The grown-on sleeve also demands that you wear the top a little roomy or else the shoulder and arm area might be too snug for comfort. If your shoulders are broad, please pick the next size up.

Fabric:

  • Mandarin ducks: 100% cotton. Hand-loomed and hand-printed. Medium-weight.
  • Main fabric: 100% cotton. Yarn dyed, with a narrow raised stripe pattern woven into the fabric. Light weight.
  • Due to the handmade nature of this fabric, there will be areas where the printing and dyes may be off or out-of-alignment. The base fabric is handwoven too, so it’s not pristine white and there are some coloured slubs woven into the fabric. If you are not comfortable with these properties of the fabric, please refrain from getting this item. But we hope you can appreciate the charms of this very handmade blouse and be warmed by the many pairs of hands that worked diligently to bring this to you. :-)
  • Will shrink ~3% after washing.

Care Instructions:

  • Hand wash separately the first few times as there could be slight colour runs initially.
  • Subsequently, you may carry on hand washing or machine wash with like-colours using “Delicates” mode, in a protective mesh bag.
  • Iron at “Cotton” or a high setting.
