Hand dyed silk jacket
Sheer organza jacket in hand-dyed ‘very peri’ pure organic mulberry silk.
Our hand dyed sheer jacket is a floaty and fun piece that we make from certified 100% organic silk organza in a ‘very peri’ purple. We sew each jacket with French seams to ensure long-lasting quality and a clean aesthetic. Organza is a beautiful fabric with a stunning structure and drape, perfect for this loud and playful jacket with full sleeves. Because of the sheer style, it can be layered over anything. It can be easily dressed up for events with either a matching or contrasting dress underneath and heels. It can also be worn casually with trainers, sandals or chunky boots.
We make each jacket in our workshop in Nottingham, England.

100% certified organic Mulberry silk.
We make this jacket from pure Mulberry silk that is Global Organic Textile Standard Certified (GOTS). A GOTS certification means that the fabric contains at least 70% organic natural fibres; it is not treated with bleach, formaldehyde or other toxic substances; it is coloured with non-toxic dyes, and is produced according to strict social and environmental standards. Silk is a natural fibre, made from the protein that some insects secrete to make cocoons. Being a natural fibre, it is therefore biodegradable.
At ford&guy, we source our silk in an un-dyed state and then dye each product to-order using non-toxic dyes that are not tested on animals and are approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Moreover, by dyeing each product to order, we are ensuring that we do not waste any material or dye.
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.

Because silk organza can snag, we recommend that you hand wash this jacket and reshape whilst damp. Wash in tepid water with mild detergent. Gently squeeze out the excess water, but do not wring the fabric and lay flat between towels until you are ready to iron. Iron damp on the reverse with a fairly hot iron. Do not bleach.
To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer, wash on cold, wash less often and don’t tumble dry.
