From Emil Rutenberg, who gets the COOLEST fabrics, this is a stunning Spanish basketweave cotton blend suiting in black and off white. I love the hand-loomed look which is achieve by using yarns of various weights to create variations in the size of the weave. It looks almost the same on both sides, and has good drape with body. Use "au natural" or interline to add more body for jackets, suits, skirt, fitted dress, evening or day coat, etc. The fabric is a medium weight suiting. Dry cleaning recommended.
