Ethically-made in Toronto, Canada.

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. The Chrysalis Cardi is also available in size Petite and Maxi.

Model's Measurements: Erica, shown in Navy Blue, is 5’9”, bust 32, waist 28, hips 39, and wearing a size M. Ashley in the Royal Blue product photos is 5'7"/size 4-6. Tamta in the Black product photos is 5'9"/size 2-4. Kristi in the how-to videos is 5'9"/size 6-8.

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.

Love. Very comfy very warm

For the Greek diety within

I bought this because it's a chiton with buttons and sustainable fabric. The design is literally timeless and you can use it in any ancient style that is based on the toga. They list a few ways to wear it, but you can do many more styles than what they suggest.
You can go conservative or racy. Look up ancient Greek dress and you'll find several millenia worth of styles. The care is hand wash which makes it a somewhat high maintenance item, but my creped linen toga would also be a lot of work. I would like to have 1 or 2 extra sets of clasps but there is plenty to be done with the 6 you have.

I am 5'9", 145lbs and the medium fits me beautifully, hitting right at my knees. I found all the styles very easy to put together and each as flattering as the next. I'm excited to try this out on my next trip.
