The bestselling Weave combines the cool feel of linen with the softness of cotton. From bed to beach, it's all about easy elegance.
INTRODUCTION The Weave is the wardrobe staple everyone needs. This linen cotton shirt is our most versatile material, combining the best qualities of our Linen and Poplin fabrics to create the perfect woven shirt, that can be worn throughout the seasons to any occasion. Taking inspiration from popular men’s summer shirts, WNU has created the shirt of the season: The Cabana. Featuring an elongated Cuban collar, short sleeves and a boxy cut, this borrowed-from-the-boys shirt has been inspired by vintage bowling shirts and adjusted perfectly for women, to create and relaxed, flattering fit. We recommend staying with your usual size in this style as the shirt is already designed to be oversized, hanging away from the body.
MATERIAL Our linen cotton blend fabric is known for its ability to be taken from season to season, making it a popular choice as an everyday classic white shirt. It weaves together the softness from cotton with the lightweight nature of linen, to create a material that is breathable, comfortable and easy to throw on. The use of linen, well known for its durability, also ensures that the shirt’s is made well and made to last.

SOURCING WNU uses two factories, both based in Portugal, to weave the fabric for our shirts and to construct them. These were selected through our strict auditing process, which ensures that they both operate to the highest standard of working and ethical values, where staff receive a proper wage and relationships between the whole supply chain are respected and well maintained. Following this, the shirts are packaged and shipped to our UK based warehouse who check every shirt individually before dispatching them on to customers.
STYLING The piece of the summer, in our most versatile material makes this shirt the easiest item in your wardrobe to throw on. If it’s a coffee date with friends, you could go classic with some denim or go all-out-summery and make the look tonal by pairing the shirt with something in the same colourway. Running errands around town? Look effortlessly cool in a pair of white cycling shorts. If you are off to the beach, wear The Cabana with some towelling shorts, a bikini and some sunglasses (but don’t forget a sweatshirt for later if it’s a British beach!). For summer garden parties - which have both types of Bellini’s - wear the Cabana Weave unbuttoned over an off-white silk slip dress for an easy, elegant look.
