This is a stunning woven from a very famous designer, made in Italy, a reddish-copper metallic-toned viscose blend (PANTONE 18-1436 but metallic) with lovely drape and body and a slightly crushed/crinkled texture that enhances the way it reflects light. The back is a pale gray and is not meant to be seen. There seem to be three fiber colors: the copper-red, a fine black, and the pale gray. NOT laminated, but woven in. SO pretty, and easily dressed up or down. Make a lightweight jacket, fabulous blouse or shirt, dress or skirt. It's opaque yet medium lightweight so it's quite versatile! Dry cleaning recommended.
