Our Mia skirt has volume and a layered ruffle to accentuate the silhouette and add texture. As part of our Sky Collection, they embody our values of comfort, statement and versatility. The Mia skirt has an elasticated waist, making it an easy and comfortable fit. We make our Mia skirt in cobalt blue from an organic cotton lightweight twill fabric. The elastic in the waist is an organic cotton and natural rubber elastic.
We hand make each skirt in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.
100% certified organic cotton.
Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. Farmers maintain healthy soil through crop rotation, preventing the loss of nutrients into water bodies and so avoiding 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 paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
