We are very excited to announce that our Chroma skirt is back in stock, this time with a new, improved and more sustainable fabric!
The fabric used to make the skirt is called "Rpet" and it is made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. Rpet is an important step towards transforming waste that would otherwise end up in landfill, or our oceans, into reusable, recyclable, high quality materials and textiles.
The fabric itself is a beautiful mid weight woven with a soft sheen and holds the colours of the prints and the pleats beautifully, and moves fluidly about the body. We are very excited about this fabric, not only for its eco credentials, but also because of it's beautiful weight and quality.
We've been planning for a long time to take action towards improving our range and fabrics to better consider the environment. This skirt is the first in a series of sustainable transformations we are making over the next year, which we also can't wait to share with you.
This fabric is one step we can make towards tackling waste, by transforming it into objects of beauty that we treasure and use again and again. It's important to note that this fabric is still synthetic, so we advise the use of Guppy bags, or equivalents when washing in the machine. This will not only capture harmful microplastics from being released into our water systems, but will also help to keep your skirt protected, and in mint condition.
*The preorder for this first print run will be open until the 2nd November at which point we will start on production of all the orders.
It will then take 4-5 weeks for the fabric to be printed, laser cut, pleated and sewn by our UK artisans.
Please allow a further 1-2 weeks for shipping.
Any orders after the closing date will be processed as quickly as possible, but may not be delivered until January 2021. *
