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 (S-XL). The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks.

- We recommend that you hand wash the Chrysalis Cardi. Hang to dry or lay flat. You may put the Chrysalis Cardi (with snaps undone) in a mesh garment bag in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. Do not put in the dryer and do not dry clean.
