Hand painted organic cotton skirt in lilac
Hand painted and hand dyed skirt in a lightweight 100% organic cotton twill
We make our hand painted skirt to-order from a lightweight 100% organic cotton twill. The design has an elasticated waist to maximise comfort and fit. We hand dye the fabric first, then paint the fabric with a wash-safe fabric paint in a pattern inspired by Picasso’s works. The fabric is hand dyed a lilac and painted with a dark green.
This skirt matches our hand painted top, which can be found here.
We hand make each skirt in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

Organic cotton is more sustainable than regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is instead maintained through crop rotation. This prevents the loss of nutrients into water bodies and avoids both water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled and compostable materials.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
