Upcycled Eco Print Silk Lurex Top UK10-12


Unique, one of a kind upcycled silk lurex top.

Fashion that makes you look fabulous but doesn’t break the planet.

With a flattering wide round neck and three quarter length sleeves this is a stylish top with prints subtle enough to be worn under a jacket during the day but lets you whip off that jacket and paint the town red in the evening.  Sustainable fashion does not have to be dull and it can be luxurious.  The touch of metallic lurex woven through the silk gives this top a fun and sophisticated twist.

Hand eco printed with rose and sycamore leaves foraged locally to our rural home in County Durham.  The printing process produces permanent prints that will not wash out or fade.  The top is high quality second hand silk.  It has been hand printed and repurposed to give it a completely new life.   Unique and unreproducable you can be sure that you will never walk into a room to find somebody wearing the same top as you.

Why not pair it with a silk jacket?
