Wear it loose and flowing or tie it at the waist for a cinched-in look.

  • Self-fabric waist tie
  • Lined for modesty
  • ELK preferred fibre
  • Easy to wash and drip dry

    Material & Makers Notes

    Material

    This is a blended fabric of 60% Recycled Polyester and 40% Polyester. This is the last item in the ELK collections which will be made in 100% synthetic material (either recycled or virgin).

    Recycled polyester uses PET as the raw material which is sourced from post-consumer waste such as clear plastic water bottles. The waste is recycled to create yarn that is then woven into fabric preventing waste from going to landfill.

    Maker

    This garment was designed by the ELK team and made by Tongxiang Jimmy Fashions in China. Jimmy has worked with us since 2010 making woven and knitted apparel. He has a team of 80 plus workers, the majority of which are women. He is a member of Sedex, receiving regular auditing at the factory. Jimmy is actively working with us to make workplace improvements and operate an ethical and sustainable business. We visit Jimmy at least twice a year and he additionally comes to visit our team annually.

    Size and Fit

    This is an easy, loose fit through the body and is really comfortable. The main fit points are focused on the neck opening, armhole and across the bust. We recommend you choose your usual size to allow the pleats to hang nicely. We have stitched the pleats discreetly on the underside to help them sit flat across the chest. You can wear this style loose and flowing or cinch it at the waist with the tie belt provided for a neater look.
