The Elodie Work Belt was first designed and released in 2016. Its concept as a large, asymmetrical pocket was slow to take shape, but once developed, became a quick favorite. I wanted to create a piece that could transform the silhouette of our voluminous, relaxed garments, but also serve a function other than aesthetic. To me, this is a pocket, belt, sash, apron, fanny pack—purely waist defining or a home for your paint brushes, cell phone, or ID. You can add a pocket to a garment without one, or add a layer of interest to an otherwise one-dimensional outfit. It's cut in a triangle, referencing one of my favorite interest-giving shapes, and the angled fabric draws a smooth line across the hips, lengthening the torso.
The Elodie can be tied in the front or back, or on the hip to highlight the large pocket. I love this style worn monochromatically over matching linen dresses and jumpsuits, or paired with a contrasting color and fabric.
Material & Care: Midweight Linen
100% Linen, Oeko-Tex certified. Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, and is hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.
Linen is a natural fiber made from cellulose fiber inside the stalks of the flax plant. It is a complete product of nature, and can vary drastically in color and texture based on the growing conditions of the season. Variations in base color and texture are not uncommon.
Natural imperfections in weave are also to be expected and embraced--slubs, nubs, and occasional bits of organic matter are common in linen. If you are looking for the homogeny and perfection of a synthetic fiber or a finely woven cotton you will not find it in linen.
Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.
Linen is a natural fiber and is expected to wear and fade over time, which we love.
