Our Millie top is a sheer and layerable piece in cobalt blue organic silk. As part of our Sky Collection, it embodies our values of comfort, statement and versatility. The Millie top has gathering all the way around the body, a high neck and no sleeves. It has a slit at the back with a small closure at the top. We make our Millie top in a hand dyed cobalt blue 100% organic mulberry silk which has the most exquisite drape and weight.
The Millie top is easily layered with our June top and and tie back top, over our Mia skirt or Poppy trousers. It is also a bold and playful look worn on its own.
We hand make each top in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.
100% organic mulberry silk.
We make this top from pure Mulberry silk that is Global Organic Textile Standard Certified (GOTS). A GOTS certification means that the fabric contains at least 70% organic natural fibres; it is not treated with bleach, formaldehyde or other toxic substances; it is coloured with non-toxic dyes, and is produced according to strict social and environmental standards. Silk is a natural fibre, made from the protein that some insects secrete to make cocoons. Being a natural fibre, it is therefore biodegradable.
At ford&guy, we source our silk in an un-dyed state and then dye each product to-order using non-toxic dyes that are nottested on animals and are approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Moreover, by dyeing each product to order, we are ensuring that we do not waste any material or dye.
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.
