A beautiful quilted silk shirt with a hand sewn kantha stitch throughout. This is made of one layer of silk on the outside with an interior layer of cotton, hand stitched together. The exterior is a deep, dark indigo, the interior is a lighter indigo. It has a light weight, but it is cozy with this double layer. (*and a really nice pairing for extra warmth is one of the V::room double faced tees). There is a front patch pocket, side slits, full length sleeves, covered buttons and a lovely pointed collar. This looks great with many different things including a great pair of jeans, the Maku wool pants, you name it! This is a special piece with all the hand stitching.
