This relaxed, short-sleeved top makes everyday dressing extra special thanks to the uniquely frilled sleeves. The cut is super flattering and its versatility will take it from skinny jeans to pencil skirt in a flash. Inspired by the V&A, this exclusive collection celebrates the joy of craftsmanship and the beauty of nature associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement. The bold Grafton print is drawn from a wallpaper pattern designed in 1883 by the movement’s leading light, William Morris (1834–96), and reworked in a modern palette of colours for a contemporary, stylish twist.

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!
