Candida Grey Skater Dress with Pockets

£149.00

A very classic skater dress with a bit of a modern edge to it. Be ready to wow with the subtlety and professionalism this dress brings, whilst still keeping things unique and fun with a candid sneak peek at our colourful trademark lining. Made out of a blend of Hemp and RPET, this dress will be a long-lasting staple piece in your wardrobe, no matter the season. Closes with a long concealed nickel-free zip on the back.

Composition: 77% Hemp, 23% RPET; Lining: 100% RPET Satin

A very resilient and easy-to-grow plant, hemp can renew up to 3 times per year whilst using 3 times less water than cotton, making it the most sustainable plant for fabrics. Very similar to linen in texture, our hemp is very light and soft, but 10 times stronger than cotton or linen. It holds its shape, resists fading, is resistant to UV rays and is very durable. Perfect for those timeless pieces you'll want to wear for years to come. No pesticides or chemicals are used in the processes of producing our hemp, making the material natural and hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin. It is also very breathable and has excellent insulation properties, keeping you cool when it's hot and warming you up when it's cold. A completely natural material, hemp is entirely biodegradable, leaving a very minimal footprint behind. Our hemp is GOTS and Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified and we source it only from certified non-greenwashing mills. Read more about hemp hereOur signature Satin Lining is made from 100% recycled post-consumer PET bottles fished our from waters around the world. It is super soft and hypoallergenic.
