Fair Indigo Premium Fabrics
Peruvian Pima cotton is one of the softest yet strongest on earth – your skirt will feel wonderfully soft out of the bag and endure beautifully for years with minimal pilling or shrinking. The ingenuity of our organic interlock fabric is its ability to stretch and retain shape beautifully without spandex. This is called mechanical stretch – achieved by the structure of the knitted yarns themselves. It’s also washed before the garment is cut and sewn, an uncommon but very worthwhile process. It not only insures your skirt won’t shrink, but also prevents puckering and twisting around seams that often happens in your dryer when fabric shrinks but threads don’t.
How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a family-owned farm in the climactically perfect Ica region of Peru. It’s then milled and knit in GOTS certified mills that are leaders in earth-friendly practices. Our dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The skirts are meticulously fashioned in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

Soft and beautiful
I ordered this in a large to accommodate my pudgy middle. I am 5'7" and had to cut 4 inches off in order to keep from stepping on it, but I am very happy with this skirt. The fabric is soft, has a beautiful color, and is very comfortable. The wide waistband holds its shape. I can only wear the skirt with untucked tops, but I don't mind. I have had numerous compliments on this and may buy a second color, despite needing to shorten it.

Tall Girls Rejoice!
FINALLY! As a tall female (5'10), I always have a hard time finding skirts and dresses that are actually long enough. Fair Indigo has come to the rescue! I can wear this about an inch or two bellow my belly button and it hits the tops of my feet (I prefer things to be really long, but could see why this might be a little too long for others).

I'm about 145 pounds and the medium is perfect. It isn't too tight or loose (no muffin top), it drapes beautifully because it has a nice weight to it, and is going to be a staple for me this spring and summer. So incredibly comfortable - I might just live in it.

Nice material, but very long.
The material is great, and the waistband lies flat but it is way too long. I am 5'4", ordered a medium as I do for shorter skirts, and I've had to hem this up by close to 5 inches. I'm keeping it because the fabric is so nice and a hem is easy to do, but it would be nice to see a petite or shorter version offered in the future.

the print is truly lovely
Got this in a medium in the beautiful black medallion-style print. Love this print and the feel of the material. I'm 5-foot-four, though, so I'm raising the hem and the side slit, too. Even though that's a hassle, I'm thinking of getting another of these lovely long skirts.

Comfortable, and oh so long!
I am 5'7", wear a 10/12 pant, and I ordered L. The fit is perfect. I wear a 32.5" inseam, and this is so long I have to pull it up higher than my belly button or fold it over to wear with flats. Finding skirts long enough is next to impossible, but this skirt is a gem.

The charcoal is a dark heathered gray/black as expected. Titanium is truly solid color and the smoothness of the pima comes through well on it. It's a beautiful neutral to cool gray that has hints of warmth in the sun, making it a very versatile medium-dark stone color. It appears cool toned next to the charcoal, but solo much more neutral.

Newest design is the best!
First ordered this skirt in charcoal. It was so dull and bland and unexciting it hung in my closet a long time before I even wore it. It's comfortable, functional and a good work choice for me. I came back to order another, a size smaller and found they'd added the black/white medallion print. Much more to my liking! This one, I washed the day I received it and wore it to work the next day. I'm wearing it now! Please add some other nice professional patterns, I'll buy another one! *Skirt runs large to the 2nd one I ordered I ordered a size down and it's perfect!

Love this skirt! The waistline is comfortable, length is perfect for me, the fabric is so soft. Definitely a quality product. Bought the grey and am going to order the black one. Best part, can dress up or be casual in it

Lovely fabric, true to size, I am 5'4" 122 and the small is prefect just a little long for flats. I bought a second and will be ordering a third.

A great skirt!
I ordered this skirt in the gray and love it. I am going to be ordering it in the black too. I did shorten the length because even though I am tall it was a little too long for how I prefer skirts. Really love the soft fabric!!
