Handpainted Silk Ruanas and Capes

Looking for a piece of clothing which makes a statement?

These silk Ruanas are beautiful and can make you feel absolutely marvellous.

They are PERFECT for travelling, either to wear on travel days or at your destination, and they can be tied into different shapes as well!

If you’re on the thin side, you can wrap these around yourself and drape like a long sarong – fabulous!

Two Possibilities

Option 1 – Open Sideseams

I have had them made with no side seams, and the two front panels can be thrown or draped over the shoulders in many different ways, or even looped or tied together at the front. The possibilities are endless.

Option 2 – Closed (Stitched) Sideseams

The clothing I design generally fits Australian size 10-18 with ease, with some of my designs fitting up to size 24-28+, which I believe could be 3X in US sizing.
