Short description

Bold checks energise our Marie blouse, a modern spin on the classic button-down. Cut with an easy A-line silhouette and half placket, it’s finished with feminine gathered frilled cuffs.

Staying true to our ethos of sustainable design, Marie is made from deadstock viscose and acetate-blend fabric, of which only 23 metres is available – meaning it’s a limited-edition piece. Furthermore, it’s produced in London, which helps lower our carbon footprint, and finished with environmentally friendlier Codelite® buttons.


Also available in white and blue.


Composition: 52% Viscose (from Lenzing), 48% Greencel Acetate, from deadstock

Made in London, by Apparel Tasker

Model is size 12 and wearing size M.


Wash less, love always

We recommend hanging your blouse to air outdoors, rather than washing after every wear. This way, it will have a lower environmental impact and last longer. Spot clean marks with warm soapy water, and when it does need a wash, follow our care advice:

  • Machine wash 30 degrees
  • Wash with similar colours
  • Medium iron
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry

A note on our deadstock fabric and Codelite® buttons

Our Marie blouse uses a deadstock viscose and acetate-blend fabric, of which only 23 metres is available, making it a limited-edition piece. It’s sourced from the Riopele mill in Portugal, which is certified STeP by OEKO-TEX® for sustainable production. The blouse itself is made in London by Apparel Tasker, which, as a London-based brand, reduces our carbon footprint.

Aside from repurposing perfectly good waste, we used these materials as they’re natural and biodegradable: the viscose by Lenzing is made from wood fibres from sustainable forestry, while the acetate – or “Greencel” as it’s otherwise known – is woven from natural cellulose by Eastman, and can be reused indefinitely.

For our buttons, we’ve used Codelite®, as it’s a natural material made from casein, a protein derived from milk. Codelite® is also biodegradable, which means your blouse’s impact on the environment once it reaches the end of its lifecycle will be reduced further.

About the brand

Saywood was founded in 2020 by Harriet Saywood-Bellisario. As she beautifully put it: "The stories behind what you wear create that feeling of true joy when you get dressed each day, filling you with the confidence to take on the world, with the conviction that your most loved wardrobe pieces contribute to a positive fashion future, instead of the global fashion crisis". We absolutely love that!

At the heart of Saywood's story is a desire to reconnect you with the people and processes behind what you wear, and in doing so, press pause on throwaway fashion. Saywood does this through storytelling and by creating timeless pieces that you can rediscover each time you wear and rewear them.

Eco-friendly: Saywood uses materials like deadstock cotton, recycled cotton, Japanese denim and Supima cotton. They produce in small batches and offer mending services. If, after years, you're done with your product, they collaborate with OWNI; a peer-to-peer resale platform.

Local & fair production: Saywood works with factories in the UK and Romania for manufacturing and the fabrics are from factories in Italy and Portugal. These factories are all audited by multiple organizations and certifications to ensure ethical working conditions. As the factory in Romania increased its minimum order quantity, Saywood will switch to another supplier for future collections.

Vegan: as Saywood uses Codelite buttons, which are made from a protein from milk, the brand is not completely vegan. However, except for these buttons they are! 

Good cause: Saywood has a Saywood for Good Initiative. At the end of each year, Saywood donates a percentage of its revenue to grassroots organisations aligned with their sustainability goals. These organizations are Labour Behind the Label (an NGO committed to better working conditions for garment workers), Trafino/Forever Lung (an organization protecting tropical forests) and Solar Sister (an organization investing in women's clean energy businesses in off-grid communities in Africa).
