Material

70% ECOVERO™ Viscose 30% Viscose Rayon

Lightweight and breathable, this fabric features fine crinkle texture while remaining soft to the touch and is well suited to trans-seasonal wear. It is a great fabric with a lovely hand feel and nice, fluid movement. Viscose has a beautiful drape, a smooth feel and a breathability that is perfect in summer or worn under layers in winter.

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.

Care Instructions

  • Hand wash
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Cool iron
  • Dry cleanable
  • Green dry cleaning preferred
  • Cold hand wash using eco-friendly detergents
  • Do not soak, rub, wring or spin dry
  • Drip dry in shade
  • Cool iron on reverse
  • The fabric used for this garment is viscose, made from the natural and renewable cellulose fibres of wood pulp. It has a delicate feel, it is softer than cotton and more springy than silk. Viscose is durable, it breathes well and is lovely to wear. The construction of all viscose fabrics result in unique properties that perform differently to other fabrics and require specific care.
  • When viscose is washed the water will cause it to naturally shrink and crinkle more. Once it has dried use an iron to flatten the fabric out and return it to its original length and finish. 
  • We recommend cold hand washing in a mild detergent. Only wash when required to reduce water consumption.
  • Gently pull the garment back into shape and air dry, either flat or hanging, in the shade. After washing, viscose will appear to have shrunk and will have a coarse hand feel. Don’t worry! Once it is dry, use a warm steam iron on the reverse. The fabric will iron out easily and regain its shape, hand feel and fluidity.
  • On the first wash, there may be a small variance in length measurements from 1 to 3cm which our production team take into account in the design.
