This smooth, floaty fabric has a matte appearance 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. Viscose has a smooth feel and a breathability that is perfect for trans-seasonal dressing. Please follow the care instructions on your garment so you can wear it for many seasons to come.
Contains LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibres, derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certifed 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.

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.
The fibres used in this blend are renewable and biodegradable.
