When assessing clothing for breathability and drape, the magic word is Rayon. Our Ponte fabrics are 68% Rayon. Beautifully draping, Rayon is complimented by 28% Nylon, and 5% Spandex materials to create this fabric. A heavier jersey material, Ponte is designed to hold shape while hinting only at flattering curves. Rest assured you’ll never have to fear of clinging or bunching. This fabric is currently featured in our collection in the Ponte Vest, Jersey Dress, and Slit Dress. To care for these pieces, machine wash warm on gentle cycle, no bleach. Wash with similar colors. You can tumble dry on low in a pinch, however our iivi experts recommend hanging to dry. Warm iron on reverse for a crisp, professional look.

Rayon originated in France in the 1880s, developed as an alternative to silk. Like silk, Rayon drapes beautifully with soft smoothness. Rayon differs from silk in that it is highly absorbent and easily washed, making everyday accidents like spilled coffee or toddler mishaps, stress-free. Our Matte Jersey is 100% Rayon. Completed with a matte (non-shine) finish, this lightweight and breathable fabric is currently featured in our collection in the Box Dress and Box Shirt. To care for these pieces, simply machine wash cool on gentle cycle, no bleach. Do wash with similar colors. Do not tumble dry. Hang to dry, finish off by warm ironing on reverse.
