ABOUT THE FABRIC

WHO MADE THIS SKIRT
This skirt is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor, Sabine. It is produced by our manufacturing partner near Chemnitz in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS SKIRT
The Material. Cupro has that silky feeling and the company, which produces the fibers gained high recognition for environmental and chemical safety practices in their traceable production system. Tencel™ Lyocell is a very conscious fabric, we love it because it is less toxic than Viscose. Besides, Tencel™ Lyocell is sustainable due it its botanic origin and production process. Head over to the home of Tencel, if you're interested in the sustainability details.
