Our vintage-fabric-womenswear is made using vintage fabric remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero impact on the environment and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this lightweight designer LANVIN Paris silk blend fabric (circa 1970s) to make 5 skirts! Made in NYC by our legendary seamstress. BTW these skirts run smaller than our usual sizes, so size up if in between. For a perfect fit, measure the smallest part of your waist— these best fit a 23 inch waist in XS, 25 in S, 27 in M, 29 in L, and 31 in XL (and if we're sold out or you'd like something custom to your measurements, check out our made-to-order page).
*Please note, these materials were upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, aka a fancy way of saying recycled. This means the fabric can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed (our specialists assess). Dry clean only (some 100% cotton skirts can be washed cold & hung dry)— or try lazy washing: pat odorous spots with vodka/place in the freezer for a day.
