Mud Silk. An ancient technique practiced for 2500 years in the Guangdong Province of China. Silk dyed with dried, ground yam is laid out in fields and slathered in the iron-rich mud of the region for weeks, rinsed in the river, then polished with anthracite coal - leaving an inky black front and a tobacco colored back. It's rare, this silk. Called Whispering cloud, Tea Silk, Singing Silk. Only a few pieces can be produced each year in concert with the distinct elements of this region. And it gets better with each wearing, lasting a lifetime.
Designed by Marcella Echavarria in conjunction with the artisans of the Pearl River, this pant looks great combined with the matching silk tee and long jacket.
Stylist Tip: Reversible. Scrunched waist band gives flexibility to any woman who wishes to wear.
