Our Satellite Dress is a long sleeve column dress featuring an original print designed at ELK HQ. This design is inspired by a satellite view of Earth at night. A roule waist tie in self fabric and button closure back and sleeve allow for a tailored silhouette, while side splits and side pockets add practicality and flair to this long line piece. Pair this contemporary design with metallic jewellery and leather boots for a modern, elevated look. As this is an original ELK yardage print the placement of the pattern will vary from garment to garment. This ensures each top is unique and minimises fabric wastage
These garments were made in China by Fluid Connection who were established in 2006 and are located in Hangzhou. They have been making garments for ELK since 2016 and the team from ELK HQ visit the operation at least two to three times a year. They too come to see the ELK team in Melbourne annually to work with the ELK HQ team. The factory that they make ELK’s products in is a relatively small operation but quite modern with automated systems for efficiencies and quality.
They are members of Sedex and ELK have chosen to operate with them not only for their skills but as they are located close to out fabric and trims suppliers, this reduces transportation impacts, costs and shares other third party suppliers such as dye and print houses.
They are actively working with the ELK team on ways to improve the sustainable profiles of our product including shifting to roll packing methods to reduce plastic consumption and replacing conventional sewing threads to recycled materials amongst many other things.
