Beautiful handmade Thai Silk in our Libra Silhouette. The art of weaving silk fabric in Thailand is ancient, going back over five thousand years. Today, it is still made by hand, much as it was thousands of years ago. The fabric is hand woven from hand spun thread and is hand dyed using a variety of natural and synthetic dyes. The patterns in these fabrics were applied, by hand, after they were woven, using wood block printing. Every bolt of this fabric is unique. Once a fabric is gone it can never be duplicated exactly.
Each corset comes with a Black Poly Shoelace and two satin ribbons. At least one satin ribbon will be color matched to the corset. The second ribbon will either be color matched or black.
The actual fabric colors are more muted than they appear to be in the photos. While the colors are vibrant, they are several shades darker than pictured.
The Libra astrology sign represents symmetry and balance. This corset was designed by Lucy's Corsetry as the answer for bodies that have similar measurements for both rib cage and hips. It provides a middle ground for those bodies that are shorter than a standard but longer than a waspie. For more information about the Libra Silhouette check out our page: Libra Silhouette
