Agave skirt with sparkle
The Agave skirt from Carlie Ballard is exclusive to Slowclothes and a truly gorgeous little number. Short but not too short, it is made from a hand-loomed cotton that has a raised stripe and subtle metallic texture (the metallic and stripe are only on the outside of the fabric, so won't feel itchy on the skin).
With a zip closure and a little give in the weave it's as comfy as it is sassy. Pair it with boots and an oversized jumper in winter, a sparkly tank for a night time look or simple white tee for an easy Summer outfit. We love these kinds of versatile pieces - perfect for building a trans-seasonal, sustainable wardrobe.

About the Brand
Carlie Ballard is an incredibly-transparent Australian fashion brand advocating for ethical and sustainable practices, and quality, independent design. Carlie, based in New South Wales, is a founding director of the Clean Cut Fashion Association, Australia’s ethical and sustainable fashion association.
Carlie’s collections are trans-seasonal, easy to wear, and exceptionally tailored. Each garment is made using individually dyed yarns and traditional wooden hand looms, powered by master artisans in Southern India. You can feel and see the love and artistry in each piece.
Garments are sewn in a small NGO workshop in Lucknow India, which provides training, excellent working conditions and fair pay to the women it employs.
Carlie Ballard is also a low-waste brand. She avoids the use of unnecessary hardware, uses all biodegradable packaging and orders small quantities of fabric at a time, minimising fabric waste and often making to order (for businesses like us!).
