Product Details

The Vlek tunic is a sleeveless, tunic style top that can be worn as a short dress when buttoned up or left open and loose on the side as a tunic. We love the old school Hollywood glam vibe from this top when worn with the matching pants, slides and a headscarf. The design feature of this tunic is the concealed, angled placket which does up with natural Corozo nut buttons. The marle, French linen is a custom Elk woven design.

  • Two-tone, melange French linen
  • Natural corozo nut buttons
  • Wear as a short dress or tunic top
  • Tank style with bra keepers
  • Asymmetrical placket detail

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 is a regular fitting garment with a slight A-line silhouette. Finishing above the knee it can be worn as a neat, shift style dress or as a tunic top. There are bra keepers at the top of the straps to help keep it in place if required. Linen will soften naturally with wear and we recommend you take your usual size. Please check the bust measurement for best fit.

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.
