100% Silk Crepe de Chine
Silk is the most luxurious of all, and Silk Crepe de Chine truly is what fabric-dreams are made of! As well as having a soft drape and subtle lustre, it also has practical qualities we all look for in our clothes - it is lightweight, breathable, won't pill and has minimal creasing.
Although we recommend dry cleaning, we know the realities of this can be a turn off for our busy ladies. If you take care, all of our silk pieces can be hand-washed in cold water, with a delicate detergent. Do not wring, twist or roll in towel to extract water. Hang to drip dry. Cool iron on silk setting or use garment steamer to remove creases.
We source our beautiful and luxurious Silk Crepe de Chine from a local Auckland fabric wholesaler. They source it from one of China’s oldest silk regions, Jiangsu. This region is based along the historic Silk Road and is well known for producing high quality silk products.
55% Linen 45% Cotton
Linen has an amazing texture and handle, and is a beautiful fabric to work with. It is extremely breathable and cool to wear, with a natural crispness. After years of working with different weights and compositions, we have found our fave. This Linen / Cotton blend is softer than 100% linen and better suited to our styles. It also means you are able to get the linen look, with less creasing - bonus for most!
Like Silk, Linen is a luxury fabric too, although with more durability than the softer silks, care should still be taken in the cleaning. A cold hand-wash or dry cleaned is our recommendation. Linen can fade in direct sunlight, so dry inside out if on the washing line.

100% Silk Dupion
If you are wanting a little old-school charm combined with a rooftop cocktail vibe, our ultra luxe silk dupion is for you. This fabric is only suitable for our Cocktail Styles.
Lightweight, yet heavier than a silk crepe de chine, the dupion has movement, gives volume and shape, yet can also be firm enough for fitted bodices. We love the sound it makes as you walk. Being another natural fiber, it breathes beautifully while wearing.
We source our beautiful Silk Dupion from a local Auckland fabric wholesaler. We are only happy with the four colour options we display for this particular type of fabric - hope you love these options too!
