Metta Melbourne

Metta - Emily Skirt - French Ticking Stripe - Light Weight Linen

Colour: Sooty Overdye

4 pieces in stock

Both flattering and comfortable, the Emily Skirt is a staple Metta Melbourne style that we love to recreate in new dreamy hues, patterns, and prints. The Emily Skirt features soft gathering along its elasticated waistband, allowing it to sit flat on the waist yet provide a fluid drape. Of course, the Emily features side pockets for practicality and a drawstring waist, allowing it to be worn on the waist or hip.


This season we have released the Emily Skirt in a limited edition French Ticking Stripe, crafted from light-weight linen. Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and was made from thickly woven cotton or linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric was used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers in nicely. We fell in love with this timeless stripe many years ago, and love to incorporate it into our collections.

Metta linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning unironed look that we have all come to love. If you would like to speed up this process, we recommend popping it in the washing machine, following the washing instructions found on your garments care label, and skipping any ironing.
