This 100% Tencel skirt is a work of art. Thought have based many items in this collection on inspirational women from history, but whom aren’t necessarily household names. This skirt design is based on the White Garden of unconventional, eccentric and charismatic, Vita Sackville West, who was part of the 1920s Bloomsbury literary set. She spent much of her life at her country estate, Sissinghurst, where she famously created a magical garden of ‘rooms’ – which you can see depicted on this magnificent fabric. Talk about a talking point! Apart from the print, the fabric is awe-inspiring too. There are many reasons to love plant-based fabric, Tencel; firstly, it’s absorbent, smooth, cool and silky soft with a beautiful drape and sophisticated handle. It’s also simple to launder, strong when wet, and has been developed to be wrinkle resistant. The entire manufacturing process to produce Tencel takes just two hours. The process is practically a ‘closed loop’ system, with approximately 98% of the amine oxide solvent recaptured and recycled back through the process, adding to the sustainability of the fabric.
