Hemp may bear associations with tofu-lovers, hippies, and yogis, but it's actually a fibre of the future, being naturally organic and incredibly sustainable. Here, eco-consious darling Kitx has used this amazing fibre to craft their Future Hemp Shirt Dress in Indigo. This is a mid-length shirt dress with a high elasticated waistband, breast pockets and hip pockets, and a raised semi-mandarin collar. Features 3/4 length rolled sleeves, with a sneaky pocket on the left sleeve for snacks, lucky charms, or keys. Fusing a slightly utilitarian aesthetic with a feminine, streamline silhouette, this is THE dress for summer paired with sandals, or worn partially unbuttoned over leather leggings.
Styling & Fit
True to size. Model wears a size 8.
Wear simply with the Cairo Sandals by Department of Finery. Dress up with the Black Cat Leggings by Kitx and the Zoe Kratzmann Muse Heels. Throw on Kitx's Global Nomad Trench at night or on slightly chillier days.
Unlike many other natural fibres used in clothing manufacturing, hemp plants use very little water, and actually bind the soil that they grow in. They attract very few insects, meaning no insecticides or pesticides are required. They grow quickly, allowing for fast regeneration. After its short life cycle, the entire plant composts back into soil.
Composition & Care
