Flowy Dress, Night Bloom
Made from beautifully draping woven lyocell, the Flowy Dress is a showstopper that delights with its voluminous skirt. A drawstring casing at the waistline of this floor-sweeping maxi dress lets you cinch the waist to your liking. The Flowy Dress has a deep v-neck, gathering at the shoulders and sleeves finished with a delicate elastic band at the cuffs. The dress fits quite snugly at the bust; the sleeves are roomy. The lyocell knit drapes beautifully and feels silky soft and comfortably cool against the skin. The dress is approximately ankle-length and has no lining.
The black-based Night Bloom print is inspired by lush flower fields where plants meander wild and free. Bring some of the Night Bloom floral magic into every day and your special occasions!

DID YOU KNOW THIS ABOUT LYOCELL?
Lyocell is a strong, modified cellulose fiber, with eucalyptus as its most commonly used raw material. Lyocell can also be produced from birch, beech, pine or spruce. It is biodegradable and produced from quickly growing renewable resources. As a textile, lyocell is similar to viscose, but its production is more environmentally friendly, as the process uses less energy and requires none of the same toxic chemicals used in producing viscose. The manufacturing of lyocell can be circular, which means nearly all of the used dissolving agents can be saved and reused.
Kaiko ♥ Lyocell
Please wash with care using a 30-degree wash. Turn the garment inside out and use a mesh washing bag. Do not tumble dry. The colors will fade with washing, so we suggest avoiding washing when possible.
About production and ecologyThe fabrics that Kaiko uses are manufactured and Kaiko's products are sewn in Portugal. The GOTS certified cotton we use is grown in Turkey where it is also spun into yarn. Some of our garments contain recycled polyester in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process. We use recycled polyester made from used plastic bottles. We at Kaiko are continuously striving to find even more ecological alternatives to use alongside our current materials.
Organic cottonKaiko uses organically grown GOTS certified cotton. The organic cotton tricot and jersey fabrics that we use feel lovely on your skin. They withstand wearing and washing without losing their shape or softness.
We want our clothes to be worn often and particularly the clothes for small kids should be comfortable to wear. That is why elastane is incorporated in the material of some of our garments. It helps clothes fit better and makes them stretchier and thus more comfortable.
Cashmere is a luxurious and soft material but it is also delicate and needs good care. With proper care, it will last for years to come. Cashmere wool is one of the warmest natural fibres. This is thanks to the fluffiness of the fibre, which creates small pockets of air that provide insulation. Because of this softness and fluffiness, cashmere knitwear pills easily. This is a feature though, not a flaw, and with good care the elegant look of your garment is restored. As the fibres set over time, the pilling will decrease.
Linen unionThe material of our garments made of linen union (50% linen, 50% organic cotton) combines the lustre of linen and the softness of organic cotton. This natural material will just get better and softer as you wash it and wear it and it feels lovely on your skin.
Recycled polyesterOur jersey that contains recycled polyester is similar to Kaiko's traditional cotton jersey. In addition to organic cotton and elastane, the material of some jersey garments also contains recycled polyester, which enhances the durability of the fabric. The use of recycled polyester reduces the environmental impact of the garment.
LyocellLyocell is a regenerated fibre made of wood cellulose. The manufacturing process is similar to that of viscose but the solvents used in making lyocell are non-toxic, organic compounds. Lyocell is thus a more ecological alternative to viscose. Manufacturing lyocell requires significantly less water than making cotton. Lyocell is soft and it hangs beautifully. It is breathable and feels lovely on your skin. Also, it does not build up static electricity. Lyocell is a biodegradable material.
RubberThe elastic bands in our products are made of natural rubber i.e. latex.
Care instructionsPlease check the washing label of your new garment before washing and follow the care instructions. You can wash most of our garments in 40 degrees Celsius. We do not recommend tumble drying as it may cause colours to fade and increase shrinkage.
We recommend washing without fabric softeners and with similar colours. After washing, it is good to reshape the garment slightly whilst damp. With items that contain Lyocell, we recommend you use a wash bag and, if necessary, iron the garment from the inside after washing and drying. For tights, we recommend hand washing and reshaping whilst damp.
Particularly garments with prints should be turned inside out before washing. Do note that the hook-and-loop and zip fasteners on garments may damage other items in the laundry. Garments may shrink in the first wash by 5–8% depending on the item.
It is good to remove possible stains right when they occur but we recommend treating stains at least before putting the garment in the washing machine. However, prolonged soaking in cool water may be damaging to prints and colours.
You can – and it is good to – lengthen the interval at which you wash particularly women's garments by airing them after use.
