Created from a beautiful, hand-dyed Silk Charmuse, this Zona Jacket is great for layering. With it's lightweight and soft hand, this rust and green blouse can be worn under the San Diego Jacket or the Deja Vu Wrap. We received this fabric from Dye Crazy Silk: Awe-inspiring Handpainted & Dyed Fabric by Evelyn LeVasseur & Tina Arsenault. "This luxurious Earthy Blend Charmeuse will be the most amazing thing that you will ever wear against your skin. It is a two sided fabric that can be used with either the crepe side or the satin side facing. It has a firm, soft, supple hand and a luxuriously heavy drape. It is perfect for anything you can dream up, from lingerie to evening gowns."

This Zona Jacket made from separate gray and black wool blend crepe fabrics is made by Debi Tong Gray. The front panel is a remnant of Japanese textured cotton yukata with a shibori stream and dragonfly pattern stenciled onto it. The vintage spherical black buttons are carved with spirals and reminiscent of dragonfly eyes. Scraps of yukata and black and white cotton shibori have been used to bind the sleeve hems.
