Description

Our limited edition take on a unisex skirt, made to be worn over pants (or not). The design honours Japanese plaid fabrication, featuring deep box pleats at the front, darts in the back, fastened with a fitted double corozo button waistband. The two overlapping side splits make this apron-esque skirt both a statement and a staple.

Made to order, allow 2 weeks.

Worn with A.18 trousers and A.33 Sweater.

Packaging

Compost

Our default packaging for local orders, home-compostable satchels have the lowest environmental impact when composted locally. Please don't throw this into your general waste bin, instead, after re-use, compost at home or find other solutions here. You can contact us immediately after placing your order to request recyclable packing instead.

 

Recycled

For extra fragile goods, or international orders, we use 100% post-consumer waste recycled and RECYCLABLE satchels, boxes and tissue paper. After re-use, these can go into your curb-side paper recycling bin. 

Care

Laundering

Organic fibres need just a little more TLC than conventional ones. Machine wash on COLD, use a delicates bag for best results and hang to dry. We'll also send a detailed digital care guide when you buy this garment.

 

Repairs

We stand by our garments + offer complimentary repairs for all A.BCH pieces. Our free repairs are for general wear and tear, all we ask is that you cover the cost of delivery or drop off to our Melbourne studio. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.

End of Life

Recycling

To recycle this garment, send it back to us for store credit. We'll even cover shipping! Depending on its condition, we'll repair & re-sell it (as second hand) OR transform it into brand new yarns through our recycling program (so circular, darling).

 

Compost

If returning is unlikely (you're busy with a climate rally or living off the grid), this skirt is 99.5% compostable (buttons and all). After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply remove the A.BCH tag before cutting the rest into strips, safe for anaerobic composting at home or commercially.
