The navy on white striped Edith shirt dress of People Tree is made of 100% organic cotton. This long sleeved dress is a classic shirt style as a dress. It has a straight/relaxed fit, a button opening on the front until the waist, a chest pocket and two side pockets on the hip area. This isn't a regular striped dessin, some parts and chest pocket have a horizontal stripe while the overal dress have a vertical stripe. These details give the dress a playful look.
Because of this, it makes the dress a true eye catcher. On a warm day wear it just with a nice sneaker or other footwear but because it's in a shirt style a skinny jeans underneath is also a good combination.

What makes organic cotton a better choice than conventional cotton? First of all, organic cotton doesn’t need chemical fertilizers and less water to grow. Secondly, when cotton is organically grown the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on that same field. Growing organic cotton has a positive effect on the lives, health and incomes of the farmers. And organic cotton is healthier for the wearer!
