            Sustainable, ultra-soft opaque fabric.

          • The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

            Modal 
            is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
            Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.

          • Fit Advice: Perfect for women of any height from sizes (S-XL). The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks.

    Incredibly soft and flattering!

    The cardi is so easy to change up and it looks amazing in every style. I’m really impressed with how well they wash, too. Final word-flattering! I am so stunned at how good the dresses, dressy sweat pants and the Evolve top look on me! Kudos to the designer and also to the minimal packaging. Love it all!

    Amazing! Thank you so much for the kind words!

    Soft and Comfortable

    The fabric is so soft and I want to wear it every day! It takes me a while to really get the fit right in different styles but I think that is because I’m still trying to embrace my postpartum body. I really want to find even more ways to style this piece. I LOVE it.

    Love it!

    I love the soft fabric that it's made of and the versatility of it. I've been looking for a piece that can be worn multiple ways for a long time. I do find it a bit awkward when I'm trying to wear it as a cardigan but it's gotten less awkward each time that I've worn it. The videos are a great help! I bought it in black and I'm definitely thinking about purchasing another one in a different colour. It folds up so nice and small that it's awesome for when I'm travelling.

    That is great! The Chrysalis Cardi can seem frustrating at first, but once you master it, it will become your most essential piece! If you are in the GTA feel free to stop by and we can go through every style with you!
