Handmade wrap skirt in undyed, hand-spun cotton
Made of hand-spun, handwoven cotton in its natural, un-dyed colour - The Layla skirt offers an effortless yet captivating look, inspired by the traditional artisans’ skirt of rural Thailand.
The Cotton skirt uses zip fastening at the back and a wrap at the front, double fastening and a self-tie waist band adds shaping at the waist. Two real pockets on each side and fake finishing pockets at the front and back. Pair yours with a silk camisole and finish the look with heels or flats, depending on the occasion.
Our model, Raduwah, is wearing size XS or UK6. Her measurements are: Height 173 cm, Bust 31", Waist 24", Hips 35" . See 'Size Guide' for further guidance.
The Layla wrap skirt is made from 100% traceable, un-dyed, organic cotton. The cotton is grown naturally by local farmers in rural Thailand, using purely the seasons and the 'lie of the land' to water the crop.
The cotton used in the warp is grown along the banks of the Mekong River. The river acts as its irrigation, watering the crop when it breaks its banks during the monsoon season. The cotton used for the weft is grown by local farmer 'Grandma Jo'. It's purely rain-fed and hand-spun in to yarn by Grandma Jo herself, creating the beautiful texturing in the dress we just love!
To ensure your handwoven item retains its charm and beauty for many years to come, we recommend the following:
Take care to avoid extreme heat and direct sunlight when drying or storing the product as this may cause colour fading and/or shrinkage. We recommend storing the product in a cool, shaded and dry place at all times.
Dry-clean or hand-wash only. Hand-wash inside out in cool water. Use gentle/low concentration detergent and avoid bleaches, heavy-duty detergents and stain removers. If using machine hand-wash, use a fine-mesh net for extra protection from snagging. Iron inside out on a medium to high heat.
All fabrics woven by hand may come with small knots, yarn pulls or short pieces of thread – these irregularities do not affect the quality or future durability of the product. We feel these irregularities only add to the uniqueness and individualism of our products.
