    The return of a popular skirt from last year - the first skirt we ever released. I felt like skirts can quickly become too feminine, and I thought that the skirt I would design would be so utterly simple that it couldn't be hard to find elsewhere. However - I realized that I myself couldn't find what I was picturing. I worked to create the most pared down version of this garment - nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. Midi in length to show some leg but also provide modest coverage, a generous hem to add a luxe weight and body to the fabric, just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but not become bulky at the waist.

    Wear this with your feet in the water of far away shores on a sticky summer evening, fabric lightly skimming salty, just-barely-sunburnt skin. Or in the city briskly walking to work paired with an easy tee and sneakers.

    Cut from a beautifully textured crinkly linen gauze. It has inherent stretch so it hugs the body beautifully while still retaining drape. Organic and variegated in color and feel.

  • Material & Care

    Linen Gauze

    100% Linen

    A gorgeous lightweight linen gauze that has a wonderful texture. The crinkled finish gives the fabric inherent stretch. It's airy and floaty without being too sheer, hugging the body in slimmer styles and draping beautifully in others. Much lighter than our midweight linen, but still strong and durable. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. This yarn-dyed gauze possesses rustic charm and variation, giving it an organic personality.

    Available in two delicious grays - a light heathered "Smoke," and a dark, warm "Charcoal."

    Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry hot. Store folded or flat in order to avoid stretching - if stretching occurs, machine washing and drying will return to original shape. Crinkled finish is intentional, do not press. To remove fold creases or wrinkles, lightly steam or toss in the dryer with a damp towel. Avoid excessive stress on seams.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Available in sizes XS-XL. See our size chart to determine your size.

    Intended to be worn high at the natural waist. Elastic waistband allows for some leeway between sizing, choose based on waist measurement. Loose and flowing fit through the hips and leg.

    The Midweight Linen and Cotton Poplin tend to stand away from the body, whereas the Linen Gauze feels a bit more fitted because of the texture.
