June top in cobalt linen


The June top in a cobalt linen.

Product Details

This is our June top in a rich cobalt linen that has been laundered for a soft feel. The design has a simple neckline, with a peplum at the bottom and adjustable bow tie straps at the shoulder.  It has a loose fit resulting in a trapeze shape that is comfortable but also flattering. This top works really well as a versatile piece in a capsule wardrobe. It can be worn with the matching fitted skirt in cobalt linen to look like a one-piece dress.

We hand make each top in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

100% European linen laundered for softness.


Linen is made from the flax plant, best grown in northern Europe. It is one of the most sustainable fabrics, since it needs little or no fertilisers and little water additional to rain water. It happily grows in poor soil, meaning it also  doesn’t really require many pesticides. Flax cultivation therefore has a positive impact on the eco-system diversity. Moreover, parts of the plant that aren’t used for linen are used to make linseed oil, paper, cattle feed or even soap.

As a fabric, linen is biodegradable, recyclable and due to its natural absorbency, it requires less dye than cotton. Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pile, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if no shrinkage and is very strong. It also has natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypo allergenic characteristics. Despite linen being traditionally worn in summer, linen is actually very thermoregulating and can be worn in all weather.

The particular linen we use is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric. It is also woven in a mill run on green energy. The resulting linen is Oeko-Tex certified as free from harmful chemicals. Finally,the dyes used on this cloth are GOTS certified.

The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
