Gertrude Maxi Dress - Terracotta
Named after and inspired by Arkitaip co-founder Lea's super fashionable grandmother, the Gertrude Maxi Dress in Terracotta is one of a kind. Its graceful floor-length cut, the puffed sleeves, and the accentuated waist-fit add this extra bit of elegance while the calming terracotta colour makes this linen maxi dress a laid-back statement piece.

- Here's why we love linen so much: linen is a natural, durable, hypo-allergenic, temperature-regulating and highly breathable material. The cultivation of flax (the plant linen is made of) is environmentally-friendly as it uses less water, chemicals and land. Find out more here.

- Wash your linen piece gently and preferably by hand.
- When machine-washing it, wash it on a low temperature (ideally cold or on max. 30 degrees) and on a gentle spinning cycle to protect the garment's fibers.
- Use a mild and preferably organic detergent to best preserve the piece's colour and fit.
- Lay it flat to dry - tumble drying is bad for the environment anyways ...
