100% SILK Hand Embroidered Juliet Corset in White

The name "100% SILK" stands for the brand's dedication to exalted textiles.
Each collection is an investigation into a special cloth fashioned from traditional techniques such as hand dyeing, knitting and weaving.
In our Toronto studio, the textiles are reimagined into garments inspired by individual style.
All the garments in this collection are made from a Silk/Rayon velvet, hand dyed and sewn in Toronto.
The velvet has a silk chion backing and a rayon nap, which feels amazing on the body and takes colour beautifully.

White silk off-the-shoulder corset top. Hand embroidered with gold crosses and lined with flour sack material sourced in Ghana.

  • This top is made from a satin-weave silk and cotton from Uzbekistan’s Fergana Valley. The Fergana Valley is the most important center of Central Asian silk production, where women have been cultivating cocoons, reeling them into thread, and weaving fabric on wooden floor looms since late antiquity. 100% SILK works with a family of seventh-generation dyers and weavers to produce its silk.
  • The Juliet Corset is brocaded by master embroiderer (zarduz) Mirshod Farmanov in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The art of arranging gold metal threads in parallel rows on a ground fabric, and then couching them with silk thread has a long history in Bukhara. Examples have been found dating back to the 7th century when the first gold mines were excavated. Once reserved for the clothes of the nobility, today the technique is used only for special occasions such as weddings. A brocaded wedding robe can take up to 3 years to make.
  • Made in Canada
  • Fabric: 100% satin weave silk
  • Emma is wearing size S
