Endangered Polka Skirt
With an asymmetric cut and mixed size polka print, this piece offers a refreshing take on the classic wrap skirt. The print highlights the 10 most endangered species affected by Climate Change. Each one is shown in their changing habitat - the very reason their existence is under threat. From the tigers fighting flooded homeland to the bees out of sync with the seasons, this print shows how these seemingly 'small' temperature changes are causing severe, irreversible issues. Simply style with a simple top or complete the look with our Endangered Polka Blouse.
All our garments come with a dinky minizine explaining the issue within the print, its importance and what you can do to help. This means the next time someone compliments you on what you are wearing, you have more to say than just 'thanks'. 10% of our profits go back to a charity that works with that issue you’re wearing, in this case Friends of the Earth.
Sizing: To avoid excess manufacturing and wastage we offer our garments in two sizes, XS/S (6, 8, 10) and M/L (12, 14, 16). The way the garments have been designed utilises the width of the fabric as well as fitting perfectly to the body, working with the flowing nature of the fabric. This allows the garments to be more versatile and adapt to your lifestyle. Print placement will vary by garment due to the size of the repeat, and to ensure we make the most out of the fabric. Emily is 5ft 7" & wears an XS/S.
