02/12 Linen Top backless
02/12 is a backless top with medium length sleeves. You can form a bow knot, to tighten it up or bind it loosely for a more relaxed fit. Roll up the sleeves and wear it with your favourite pair of jeans for a night out, or team it up with shorts and bring it to the beach – give your back a chance to shine!
This piece is a one-fits-all and our model is a German size 34/36.
ABOUT THE FABRIC
Made out of 85% Tencel™ Lyocell and 15% Linen, made in Turkey; certification Oeko-Tex.
WHO MADE THIS TOP
This top is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor, Sabine Dicklberger. It is produced by our manufacturing partner Studio U&N near Chemnitz in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS TOP
The Material. This fabric is amazing because it combines the smoothness of Tencel™ Lyocell with the slight structure of Linen, minus its wrinkle propensity. Linen and Tencel™ Lyocell are a top team in terms of sustainability. Both have a comparably small carbon footprint. Furthermore their production, from cultivating Linen to manufacture Tencel™ Lyocell is water-saving.

The Look. The 02/12 top is a multitalent – goes with nearly everything for every occasion, at slightly higher temperatures.
