Encircled's founder Kristi started Encircled in her kitchen with a sewing machine she bought on Craig's List! Now they've grown into a full-fledged brand making really comfortable small batch clothing--all made in Toronto with ethical production practices and eco-friendly fabrics, up-cycling their excess fabrics, and using recyclable shipping materials.
Our first design ever, the innovative Chrysalis Cardi in size - Petite/Small. The Cardi can be styled 8+ ways. From a cosy cocoon cardi to a chic Grecian tunic, a glamorous one-shoulder gown, to a poncho, classic infinity scarf and more. Find all the ways to discover and make it your own!
The secret? Hand-sewn, heavy duty metal snaps hidden along the hem that hold the look together. So, you look like you’re wearing a Dress, not a scarf tied into one. The perfect travel piece for travelling light. Effortlessly transform, and start doing more with less with this versatile design.
- Comes with a belt made from the same fabric.
Includes full-colour look book with how to wear instructions. Watch How to Wear videos.
8+ ways to wear (and counting...)
Sustainable, ultra-soft opaque fabric.
The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex
Modal is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.
Fit Advice: Perfect for women of any height from sizes (XS-M). The design will also work on women larger than this size but who just prefer a shorter silhouette when styled as the dress looks.
