Material Information:

The Bandeau Top by River Jade Smithy is available in two distinct fabric options, each carefully selected for their sustainable qualities and enduring appeal. Both fabrics are certified with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, ensuring they are free from harmful substances and produced with environmental consciousness.

  1. Slinky Matte Lycra:

    • Composition: A blend of 82% polyester and 18% Lycra, this fabric offers a balance of comfort and elasticity.
    • Texture and Feel: As the name suggests, Slinky Matte Lycra is sleek and smooth with a matte finish. It feels silky against the skin and drapes elegantly.
    • Durability and Care: Known for its quick-drying properties and resistance to pilling and abrasion, this fabric is ideal for both swimwear and everyday wear. It maintains its shape and color over time, even with regular use.
    • Certifications: Besides the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, it also boasts the BS EN 13758 certification for UV protection, ensuring safety during sun exposure.
    • Care Instructions: To maintain the quality, wash at 86°F, tumble dry at low heat, or hang to dry. It can be ironed at low heat but should not be wrung out.
  2. Lycra Soft Sheen:

    • Composition: Made up of 85% polyester and 15% elastane, this fabric offers a slightly different feel with a 4.72oz weight. It combines durability with a gentle stretch.
    • Texture and Feel: The Soft Sheen Lycra is characterized by its subtle shimmering surface, adding a hint of glamour to the garment. The fabric has a 4-way stretch, adapting to various body shapes while returning to its original form after use.
    • Durability and Care: This material is highly flexible, resists pilling, and is easy to maintain. Its moisture-wicking capability draws perspiration away from the body for added comfort.
    • Certifications: It also holds the BS EN 13758 UV Protective certification, making it a safe choice for outdoor wear.
    • Care Instructions: Care for this fabric by washing at 86°F and tumble drying at low heat. It can be hung to dry and ironed at low heat, similar to its Slinky Matte counterpart.

Both fabric options reflect River Jade Smithy's commitment to sustainable fashion choices without compromising on style or comfort. By choosing either of these materials, you are not only making a fashion statement but also a conscious choice towards a better environment. 

What is the fit of the bandeau top like? Both the Lycra Soft Sheen and the Slinky Matte Lycra fabric options fit beautifully on the body. The fit is secure and very comfortable. There is a strip of woven elastic sewn into the top and bottom hem of the printed tube top, which provides support and a form-fitting finish. For additional comfort, there is a mesh layer sewn into the lining, which gives an additional layer of comforting support.

Upon the far green shore, where love does blend,
In Loved 's wisdom, may this message send.
Each word a beacon, a spark of eldritch light,
A tale of hope and honor, to chase the darkest night.
With noble heart, the craft of legend to be,
A Grail's resplendent art, from farthest sea to sea.
Custom gems of beauty, like stars in night's sweep,
Bespoken treasures we shall forge, in dreams to deeply keep.
Like the mightiest wizard's staff, defects we dispel,
In every item's tale, the power of craft, we tell.
In the forging fire's blaze, each jewel anew,
As Loved's own return, let this message be true.
Swift as an eagle's wing, we send gifts to your hand,
The spiraling coil, symbol of hope, across the land.
In the spirit of Print On Demand, to protect the realms we roam,
With eco-friendly hands, we'll build a better home.
In this magical realm, together we shall dwell,
Unique, enchanting designs, their stories we shall tell.
With the Grail Night's valor, and the Smith's expertise,
Together we journey, crafting dreams with ease.
The journey, seamless, as across the fields we tread,
From Earth’s serenity, as the Silvan Sward, where dreams are spread.
In tales of old and new, in words, songs, and deeds,
With the fellowship of hearts, all wounds shall heal.
As the shadow retreats, with the dawn's first kiss,
May we keep the hope alive, and never miss,
The Grail Smith's allure, a treasure, a balm,
A beacon of honor and love, in Loved’s calm.
Beyond the realms of woman or man, we transcend,
In unity we forge, in honor and love, we'll mend.
May this message, like the magic word, endure,
A token of hope and grace, steadfast and pure.
~Scribe of the Mystic Quill
