Linen ruffle camisole
Handmade linen ruffle camisole with colour blocking in pink and orange
I make this linen ruffle camisole from a lightweight European linen. It has a flattering v-neck on both the front and back. It is a super comfortable top to wear and looks great with trousers, jeans or a skirt.My inspiration for the pink and orange colour blocking is Mark Rothko’s beautiful painting ‘Red and Pink on Pink’.

Linen is sustainable for a number of reasons. Not only is it durable and so long-lasting, but it is also biodegradable. Additionally, linen comes from the plant, flax. Growing flax is sustainable because it can grow in poor quality soil, it takes less water than standard cotton and uses significantly fewer pesticides. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation state that flax uses 13 times less pesticides than potatoes. Moreover, every part of the flax plant can be used for various products. This reduces waste and increases profits for farmers!
I use labels made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified as free from harmful chemicals. I package each garment in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.

This linen ruffle camisole is machine washable. I recommend washing at 30-40 degrees C and line-drying. Iron on medium/low.
To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer:
-wash at cooler temperatures;
-wash your clothes less often;
-and don’t tumble dry.
