With each changing season comes the welcome addition of new favourites to our wardrobes and this season you’ll need nothing but linen. You’ll probably recall your mother raving about this incredible material and how she loves its breathability, that it was natural and how well it ages. Well, it turns out your mum was right!
Woven from the fibres of the flax plants, linen is a luxurious and sustainable material that we now adore (just like our mother’s do!) Completely natural, it doesn’t require chemicals to be processed, and at the end of its life, is biodegradable.
Long considered a fabric synonymous with style, wearing linen top to bottom is reminiscent of days spent cruising along the coastline and honestly, who doesn’t want to feel like that every day! That’s where new South Australian label, The Shanty Corporation, comes in.
Designed and curated in our favourite seaside town of Robe, The Shanty Corp. creates purposeful clothing that’s adaptable to any lifestyle, body or age. With a strong focus on natural and sustainable fabrication, they are all about linen. Plus, they have a multitude of stockists across the state if you can’t make it to their capsule store in Robe!
Their new collection is full of effortless and relaxing pieces with chic styling. From mid-length dresses perfect for Spring layering, luxe hand-embroidered playsuits for night’s out and sophisticated wardrobe must-haves.
Linen is worn best when slightly wrinkled. So, own that lived in look – it’s the way it was made to be!
