Have you ever met a wrap dress that you didn’t like? An easy wardrobe staple that’s probably going to become your go-to summer outfit, the Bates dress comes in two parts–under dress & over dress. Just pair it with the Palatines Caelum Sandal for look that’s as good for the office as it is for the evening.

Made from deadstock linen from designer factory waste, you can wear the Bates dress with a clear conscience knowing that it wont put strain on the Earth’s natural resources.

Bug Clothing cut and construct all of their pieces in their humble studio in Hackney, East London, to ensure everything that they make is fair trade and eco-friendly.

Instead of using the tumble dryer, arrange on a flat surface on a towel and allow to air dry. Air drying avoids mis-shaping and also keeps wool from felting.

Iron this on a low heat setting so as to not damage the delicate fabric.

Machine wash on a cold cycle with an environmentally friendly laundry detergent, if you're in the UK we recommend Ecover
