Short description

A true forever wardrobe foundation, the Lela is your go-to white shirt; a favourite amongst Saywood customers for it’s easy-to-wear classics-redefined styling. Its oversized boxy silhouette drapes beautifully of your body, whilst the box pleat in the back gives an added elegance.

Trimmed with unexpected details akin to Saywood; subtle cotton herringbone tape at the pockets, to-match top stitching, neat side splits for ease, and a light utilitarian feel.

Cut from a modern soft recycled cotton from the Canclini mill in Italy, the Lela Shirt in white offers a more sustainable alternative to the conventional classic; using existing cotton, respun, with little water used, made in London to reduce our carbon footprint, and finished with eco-friendly corozo buttons.

Composition: 100% Cotton from recycled yarn

Made in England, London, by Apparel Tasker

Shirt is a boxy fit to drape off the body, finishing below the trouser line for coverage.

Wash less, love always

We recommend hanging your shirt to air outdoors, rather than washing after every wear. This way, it will last longer and also have a lower environmental impact. 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 cotton and corozo buttons

Our Lela Shirt uses recycled cotton sourced from the Canclini mill in Italy; regenerating what already exists, made solely using the mill’s own solar-generated power. It’s made in London by Apparel Tasker, which, as a London-based brand, reduces our carbon footprint.

Our cotton is also certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, which means it’s completely free from chemicals harmful to your skin. We’ve used corozo – known as vegetable ivory – for our buttons, as it comes from a nut found in South America which can only be harvested once it naturally falls to the ground, making it a more sustainable choice.

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).
