This simple, elegant jacket creates a long line with its straight cut and minimal detail. Dropped shoulders give it a nonchalant, slouchy charm, and the button-free opening keeps the silhouette light and informal.

washing & care : this fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. You can expect its texture to become incredibly soft and waffle-ish with wear and washing, as shown in the last picture. caya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags) but should not be tumble dried.
