Cactus Shirt Dress
Made by Elk the Label
Our Cactus Shirt Dress is a classic shirt dress with a number of subtle, directional twists. The panelled design and back pleating lends an elegant twist to the flowing silhouette, while the button-through front and side pockets offer versatility in both styling and wear. The unique print was designed by our digital designer in Cologne as an homage to our favourite prickly succulents and their varied colours and forms found in gardens all over the world. For a fun and colourful layered look, consider pairing with our Agna Sweater in Rose. This dress contains LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres.

This dress is cut for an elegant, flowing silhouette thanks to the careful pleating and panelled design. The key fit points to check are in the bust, arms and length and we would recommend taking your usual size. The simple hem allows for the length to be taken up by a tailor if you prefer a shorter length.
Fabric53% Viscose & 47% ECOVERO
Lightweight and breathable, this fabric features a textured surface while remaining soft to the touch.
Viscose is made from cellulose from timber that has been processed and spun into fine fibres. We are working with not-for-profit organisation Canopy to ensure that our forest-based fabrics are responsibly sourced from sustainable forestry. The viscose fibres in this garment are from producers with a green shirt ranking according to the most current CanopyStyle Hot Button Report. These producers are considered low risk or have taken substantive action to eliminate risk of sourcing from ancient and endangered forests.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres are produced using pulp, which is derived from the renewable resource Wood as raw material. Lenzing purchases Wood and pulp derived from responsibly managed forests and certified to come from sustainable sources.
The manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic viscose. According to Higg MSI™ tools, CO2 emissions and fossil resource use are approximately half that of the industry average.
A special manufacturing system enables LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres to be identified in the final product, even after long textile processing and conversion steps through the value chain.
