The Full Story+

Linen has always been popular for warm-weather travelling – it’s refreshing, cool and comfortable next to the skin.

Unfortunately, natural 100% linen isn’t really practical for regular travel which is where Rohan comes in.

Our clever fabric engineers have taken nature's finest flax fibres, added some technical knowhow and created Performance Linen™ – a material offering all the breezy, casual comfort of traditional linen but in a durable, crease resistant format which is much easier to care for.

Our Malay Maxi Dress offers a relaxed fit with subtle darts for shaping at the bust, two hand pockets and attractive buttoned placket at the back.

It has all the usual easycare features you’d expect from a Rohan product such as crease resistance, easy washing and overnight drying. And unlike ordinary 100% linen, the Malay Maxi Dress won’t grumble at a quick spin in the washing machine. All that’s required to restore a super-crisp look is a quick once-over with a travel iron.

Throw on our Malay Jacket over the top and you’ve got yourself a smart little travel outfit.

Our Technologies

Staying cool in the heat is actually more challenging than keeping warm in the cold. The most effective fabric technology is to use open weave structures that disperse heat through convective cooling.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 350gLightweight - Weight: 350g

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Packable - Pack Size: 800mlPackable - Pack Size: 800ml

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

It looks red but it's orange!


It's lovely. It wears well. Does crease, but only marginally, not like linen. You will need to iron this one.

Good sizing. Great length.

Review of the red Malay Maxi Dress


Four examples of this dress have uneven bust darts. I've had to return two and found that two that I looked at in a shop were exactly the same. It is an obvious and visible fault, and to my mind makes the dress unacceptable.

Sorry to hear you've experienced a problem with the Malay Maxi Dress. Our customer service team will be in touch shortly.

beautiful dress


what has happened to the sizing??? It's gone BONKERS. I have the malay dress in navy from last year in size 12 and it still fits perfectly. This year I bought it in the lovely red colour and the size 12 squashed my bust ,while the size 14 was HUGE on my hips. I also have Rohan dresses from previous years in size 10 that still fit me perfectly. What IS going on? Can't decide whether to keep it and take it in or give up on this lovely dress.

Love this dress


I'm surprised nobody has reviewed this lovely dress yet. It's so flattering to wear, does not crease and keeps me cool. Pity they are nearly all gone!
