    Material

    100% French Linen

    This garment has been crafted from 100% French Linen, a natural fibre from flax grown in the northern regions of France. Linen is a light, breathable fabric that is durable and strong. It wrinkles easily which is part of its appeal, it is easy to care for and becomes softer with age and wear.

    Flax is a highly productive crop requiring minimal water, herbicides or pesticides to grow, making it a better environmental choice than many other natural fibres, such as conventionally grown cotton.

    Linen is a renewable and biodegradable fibre. 

    Maker

    This garment was designed in Melbourne by the ELK team and made by Tongxiang Jimmy Fashions in China. Jimmy has worked with us since 2010 making both woven and knitted apparel. Jimmy is actively working with us to make workplace improvements to ensure the factory is safe, ethical and sustainable.  

    The factory is signed up to Sedex, and undertakes regular SMETA social compliance audits. 

    Size and Fit

    This long dress has a V-shaped neckline and an inverted pleat at the back for added comfort. We have gone to great lengths to ensure the wrap front and v neck sits well to ensure modesty and comfort. The key fit points are in the bust and waist first and foremost so please refer to these measurements to ensure best fit. Larger busts and waists may consider going up a size and likewise smaller frames could go down a size. The simple hem also allows for easy alternation if the length is too long. One of the key design features of this garment is the volume of fabric in the skirt. Linen will soften with wear.

    All garments are measured flat (not on body) and then doubled (except the length) to calculate the total circumference. To work out what size will suit you best, flat measure an item that fits you well and use this as a guide. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information.
