Product Details

A fun, short, shift style dress in a Hollywood era stripe print. Made in a silky feel viscose containing environmentally responsible ECOVERO™ fibres, this dress has a waist seam to slightly distort the print. A back keyhole with button closure, pockets and a lovely sleeve that features a high side split to elongate the arm - this a classic Elk style. Finishing just above the knee this is a lovely piece to wear during the day with sandals or to dress up at night with contrasting accessories.

  • Contains environmentally responsible ECOVERO™ fibres
  • Natural Corozo nut button at the back neck
  • Offset stripe print at waist seam for optical impact
  • Side seam pockets
  • ELK favourite sleeve design

Material

62% ECOVERO™ Viscose 38% Viscose Rayon

This smooth, floaty fabric has a matte sheen that gives it the perfect versatility to dress up or down. Colours and prints have a vibrant finish, while the lightweight nature of the fabric provides comfort and drape.

LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibres are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres have been certified with the EU Ecolabel for textile products (license no. AT/016/001) as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution and disposal.

The manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic viscose. According to Higg MSI™ tools, CO2 emissions and fossil resource use are approximately half that of the industry average. A special manufacturing system enables LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres to be identified in the final product, even after long textile processing and conversion steps through the value chain.

We are working with not-for-profit organisation Canopy to ensure that all our forest-based fabrics are responsibly sourced from sustainable forestry and preference those with a green shirt ranking according to the most current CanopyStyle Hot Button Report. Our partnership with Canopy includes a commitment to ensure all of our viscose products have not been sourced from ancient and endangered forests. Our traceability systems confirm the viscose fibres in this garment are from green shirt rated producers.

The fibres used in this blend are renewable and biodegradable.

Size and Fit

The upper section of this dress has a relaxed fit before moving into a more regular fit through the body. The key measurements on this garment are the hip and length. We recommend you take your usual size.

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.
