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.

  • 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 ...
