Safi Dress | Natural
The Safi Dress celebrates both comfort and style. The shifty silhouette is loose fitting and cool, perfect for hazy days in the sun. The top section over the bust is loosely fitted whilst the gathered skirts tier down from the empire line creating a flowing A line shape. The neck detail features a tie with our handmade bamboo tassels on the ends and a cute frill detail all around. The bellow-y sleeves, worn down or scrunched up add exciting volume whilst we accentuate the structured femininity of the dress with additional frill details. Height dependant, the length sits more or less slightly above the knee.
Also available in colours: Chesa and Limon
FOR THE LOVE OF LINEN (and RAMIE, made from Nettles)
Dating back 6000 years, both linen and ramie are some of the oldest textiles used by humans. Linen is made from the beautiful purple flowered flax plant and ramie, a very durable fibre is made from the stalks of the nettle plant.
Both are 100% natural fibres and are biodegradable. Left to compost, they will return to the earth in less than six months, leaving not a trace of harm behind.
The fibres are water wise too, requiring very little for both growing the plants and making the fabric. Linen is a hollow fibre insulator which means it thermoregulates, it can absorb up to 20% of its weight whilst still feeling dry to touch, hence why it is such a cool and ideal fabric for summer. Ramie, whilst offering a soft drape appeal, is extremely hard wearing and durable, making it a long lasting material.
Both linen and ramie are lint free, non-static, non-allergenic, give UV protection and acts as natural insect repellents. As with most things, they get better with age too - softer, suppler and closer to your heart. Wash away and wear away, you're only going to love it more and more.
Designed + made in Cape Town in a factory full of love. What is love you say? Love is a comfortable working space, where needs are considered and met, where your employment looks to improve your quality of living and not simply sustain it, where you can laugh and play and look forward to your days work. And because we don't like to rush things, that love extends to each individual garment where the quality + finish is seen to with attention to detail + pride, making each piece stay with you for as long as possible. Love is life.
