Delightful linen strapped dress - airy and cool. Slight A-line silhouette, beautifully embroidered straps, very pretty. On top of that - two inseam pockets! Wonderful light linen, a delight to wear, and it looks great.
100% linen. Do not be afraid of linen. It is one of the oldest fibers on Earth and best to breathe in hot weather or any weather. If a bit of wrinkle bothers you (casual chic), get a clothes steamer - it works magic. Linen is an absolutely best fabric for hot weather.

* Notes from the US based designer about their production facility in China:
"1. We absolutely do not use sweat labor. In fact, all of workers in our factory are insured by the company. We go to the extent of even offering room and board if the employee is not local.
2. We do our best to not have anyone work overtime. But if the division manager decides we need to speed up the process, we will pay overtime. Our management has a restriction in place that an employee cannot have more than 20 hrs of OT a week. Our working hours are from 8:30 AM to 12, 12-1 is time for lunch/naps, than 1-5:30.
3. Our facilities are inspected everyday by each of the division managers. They report to our general managers if they see any problems with safety/employee health issues etc. We're a US company and while production is done in China, we comply and follow US rules & regulations.
4. Our facilities are inspected everyday by each of the division managers. They report to our general managers if they see any problems with safety/employee health issues etc. We're a US company and while production is done in China, we comply and follow US rules & regulations.
5. We moved the office from LA to China in 2000 and have had a wonderful relationship with our supplier since then. Most of the fabric mills have net 30-60 payment terms with us." (meaning there is trust and solid relationship).
