Marianne North was a remarkable Victorian artist and botanist who travelled the world, breaking conventions and discovering new species of fauna and flora.
Over her 14 years of global travel and adventure she created 848 paintings and even documented species that were not previously known to science. Our latest range with Kew has been curating using inspiration from their archives and samples of Marianne's painting which we have been given exclusive access to by Kew.
A percentage of every sale from this range goes towards the vital work carried out at Kew into climate change research, conservation and preservation of natural habitats.
Our popular Kimonos are made of a custom blend of modal and viscose which creates a silky smooth lightweight material while having a more sustainable impact on the environment. They have loose ¾ length sleeves, an open front and a lightly embroidered lapel. Pair with a matching camisole and your favourite jeans in summer or layer over a polo neck during the cooler months.
Please note due to the handmade nature of our garments there can be a slight variation in measurements by +/- 1cm
