            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.

    Soft, easy, versatile

    Love it! So many different ways to wear. Used it everyday on a 5 day trip out of town. Comfortable and silky soft. Just trying to figure out how to wear it as a skirt!

    The perfect travel garment

    I was not sure what to expect from my chrysalis cardi medium but was thrilled when it arrived and I immediately started experimenting with the various configurations thanks to the enclosed booklet. I chose navy and am pleased with the depth of colour and am looking forward to adding one more colour to my wardrobe in the future. I am 5’7” 155 lbs and it fits perfectly no matter how I choose to wear it. You won’t be disappointed! The fabric is soft but holds it shape and is so comfortable to wear. I have not yet laundered this piece so cannot comment on that yet.

    Love the versatility

    Love that there are so many different looks with the same piece, the grecian tunic is my favorite style. The fabric is ridiculously soft and comfortable!

    Wonderful!

    Okay, this garment is awesome and the only thing better is the customer service! I had a struggle with Canada Post with my package and Encircled did their best to help me at every step. I did eventually get my Cardi and I LOVE it! The snaps are a little fragile so I really suggest not tugging on the fabric to pull them apart. I decided to reinforce mine as the fabric is on the heavier side but the overall quality is fantastic. Styling it can be some work at first but it gets easier the more you practice. I love this piece and plan on getting more from Encircled because of their great, ethical, and quality products, and overall fantastic customer service. I can't thank them enough!

    The colour, fabric are amazing. Easy and practical.

    I love it and was able to do all the different options but you really need to find a better way to sew the snap button - I will have to sew them before I leave for my trip because they will not hold. I think the snap button are not the best option because they cannot be secure. If someone pull on it ...oops...
