The Elly Shirt is part of a collaboration between E.L.V. DENIM and Gabriela Hearst.
Vintage denim shirt textiles are reworked into a western inspired fitted shirt. The shirts were made entirely from upcycled post-consumer denim shirts that were sourced and colour matched by hand, and produced locally by E.L.V. DENIM in London. Each garment is one of a kind.
Tian is 5"7 and is wearing a size Small.
Denim ages better when it’s washed less; damage comes from overwashing, not overwearing. Plus, you can save over 2,000 litres of water per year by washing once a month as opposed to once a week.
Close buttons and turn your sustainable denim shirt inside out before washing.
Use a damp cloth to spot clean and remove small stains in between washes, helping to keep your luxury denim shirt looking fresh.
Freeze your denim instead of washing it to kill odour-producing germs.
Steam your denim as another energy-efficient way to kill odour-producing bacteria instead of washing.
Wash at 30°C maximum. Prefer to hand wash? Use cold to lukewarm water, a mild detergent and leave your denim to soak for 45 minutes. Then rinse.
Flatten, reshape and hang your shirt to air dry. We do not advise using a tumble dryer for our denim pieces.
Dry naturally in the shade or indoors, avoiding direct sunlight, as this can fade denim.
Machine wash 30°C or below
Dry naturally – skip the tumble drier to save energy.
