As our signature design our Isadora Tunic is beautifully hand assembled using meticulous Couture sewing techniques. We use the finest Antique and vintage textiles throughout our Atelier Collection of clothing and decor making every item exclusive and one of a kind. Imperfections due to age are a natural characteristic we believe lends to the inherent beauty of our heirloom creations.
At the heart of our collection, the Isadora Tunic with long flowing fringes is inspired by Isadora Duncan, the favorite Muse of Czech born Art Nouveau illustrator Alphonse Mucha.
The perfect garment to showcase the exquisite beauty of our exquisite Circa 1920 Antique Canton Shawl textile, each lovely peony and vine falls perfectly down the center front, back and sleeves of this beautiful ivory tunic. Following the deep V of the hemline is the elegant chinoiserie floral border with two elaborate rows of the most exquisite silk macrame' fringe with tassels. We used long tasseled silk fringe on the sleeves as well, to draw extra attention - after all, Isadora Duncan always used her hands

* The Canton Shawl : In 1565 the Manilla galleon trade route from Manilla, through the northern Pacific around Japan opened the door for the Spanish King to allow Filipino’s to trade with China. A large square silk “Canton Shawl” with elaborate embroidery arrived in the Philipines, and soon became known as the Manton de Manilla. Early embroidered themes of frogs, Chinese people, scenes, birds and flowers transitioned into floral and foliage themes that were popular in Seville. Fashionable Spanish women wanted deep fringes to be added around the borders so there would be movement of the fringes, and call attention to the wearer.
