One of a kind upcycled pure silk eco print tunic top UK 12

Luxury sustainable silk top

What a gorgeous silk tunic.  It is so flexible, summer dress, beach coverup, simple top over leggings, jeans or silk palazzo pants.  A real wardrobe work horse.

A rich yellow pure silk  tunic, it has a flattering cut that hangs beautifully from the deep round neck, skimming over the body giving shape without clinging.

Originally manufactured by Tu, this silk tunic top has been eco printed with large cotinus leaves collected locally from my studio in County Durham.

A truly versatile silk tunic.  It is long enough to wear as a cute summer dress or even with a lovely chunky cardigan and woolly tights in the winter, just layer it up.  Roll it up small and tuck it in your holiday suitcase and it can take you from a day sightseeing to the beach where it would be the perfect stylish cover up.  Be the most sophisticated person at the beach bar.  Pop it over a pair of silk palazzo pants or chic pedal pushers for an evening sipping cocktails before you hit the dancefloor or just go for a gentle walk along the beach.

The printing process produces permanent prints that will not wash out or fade.  This is a stunning quality silk tunic that has  been hand printed and repurposed to give it a completely new life.   A  gorgeous item that will be the mainstay of your wardrobe at home and on your holidays.
