This v-neck dress in coral of Studio Jux is made of 100% shimmering woodpulp (woodsilk). This sleeveless dress has a straight fit, wide shoulder straps, short side splits and is knee length. The fabric is made of shiny woodpulp, which has a silky feel.
This shiny dress is a look on it's own. Wear it for a dinner with some heeled shoes. But also for a more casual look this dress will work, with a cardigan and boots it will turn in a more everyday style.
Studio JUX is a Dutch fashion label from Amsterdam. Founders Jitske and Carlien started their label Studio JUX in 2008 because they believe fashion should be fun and enjoyable for everyone; for the designers, the people working in factories and everyone wearing and using the products. Their name embodies this; ‘JUX’ literally means ‘fun’ or ‘having a laugh’ in German.
The Studio JUX collection is made in their own factory, women empowerment projects and social enterprises that are based in Kathmandu, Nepal. This means the label can ensure safe and healthy working conditions for their employees, maximise their social impact and minimise environmental impact at the same time. This also ensures that every single piece is handmade with love and dedication.
The handshake inside each Studio JUX garment connects you to the tailor who made it. All of their Nepali employees are rockstars, who they continually support. Being the owner of the factory, the label ensures that a studio JUX supervisor is present at the factory to guide and support the team.
Woodsilk is a strong and sustainable alternative to conventional silk. As we all love butterflies we prefer to keep the silkworm alive. Not to mention that a wooden top is very strong and much easier to wash and handle than silk all together!
Woodsilk items are extremely comfortable to wear. The fabric is made of trees and is high in moisture content compared with synthetic fabrics, that are often worn on festive occasions. This means that woodsilk causes less unpleasant static electricity and is gentle to your skin.
