52% Linen & 48% Cotton
This blend of Linen and Cotton brings together the natural look of both fibres to create a textured transeasonal fabric. The fabric is woven into a check.
Linen is a light, breathable fabric that is durable and strong. It wrinkles easily which is part of its appeal, it is easy to care for and becomes softer with age and wear. Flax is a highly productive crop requiring minimal water, herbicides or pesticides to grow, making it a better environmental choice than many other natural fibres.
The Cotton in this blend provides a slight structure while also adding to the breathability and comfort of the garment. Cotton is a naturally renewable and biodegradable fibre.

SIZE & FIT
This boxy-style top is relaxed but has been specifically fitted to achieve the silhouette. The main fit points to consider are in the sleeve, bust and hem. We recommend taking your usual size for the best fit but expect the linen to soften slightly with wear.
