"Armstrong" silk shirt

The pattern is "Armstrong" -an homage to the great jazzman, Louis, Pops, Satchmo, many names and many talents!
The shirt model is "Arizona" with a bandit collar, double shell buttons at the cuff, and gathers at the yoke and sleeves. 
The fabric is silk broadcloth -also known as popelin or Fuji silk- which has a lovely weight and drape, an airy warmth, and less shine than the usual habotai silk. It feels almost like cotton…only better!
Screen printed using natural-dyes in Brooklyn, New York 
Cut and sewn in the Garment District, New York
Men's shirt coming soon.



We wash things too often nowadays! There is really no need to wash clothing all the time, a simple airing is often enough -especially for silk which naturally fights off dust and mold. But when the time does comes to wash, here is how it can be done.

You can soak your naturally-dyed garments by hand, send them to the dry-cleaners, or they can go in the machine, but:

2. Wash COLD
3. Use a DELICATE cycle
4. Use a gentle Ph neutral soap like Marseilles soap or Synthrapol
5. Hang Dry

Some fading is normal and can lead to greater beauty -don’t we love our faded jeans even more? Yes we do!
