Spring Eco-Clothing

Our clothing rack is virtually bursting with new clothes for the new season and beyond.  Since it feels good to buy and wear clothes that have a light environmental footprint with no sacrifice of design, come and check out what a difference healthy, comfortable, eco-friendly clothes can make.

We carry Viridis Luxe tees, tanks, and truly exquisite dresses made from soft bamboo and silk-hemp blends.  All of us at the store have been petting and oogling the billowy folds of their bamboo, mermaid-like dresses in particular--they're perfect for anytime you want to be both comfortable and elegant from weddings and nights out to picnics and lazy days around the house.

We've also got some lightweight dresses from Rebe, a mother/daughter team in Los Angeles who bring whimsy and organic cotton into the lovely designs for ladies we have on our shelves.

And, you'll find Under the Canopy's wearable, sustainable tops at the store as well.  You can learn more about the practices of the company here.   Or, get a taste of what their women's line here.

As you make all of your clothing decisions, consider the whole process from field to store--how the fibers were grown and manufactured, how the workers were treated, and what kinds of practices the company is involved in.  Buying from companies that do good things can do a world of good.

25% of the world's insecticide use comes from spraying it on cotton fields, so choosing organic clothing protects our fields, waterways, air, other people, and ourselves.  Read about the difference between organic and conventional cotton at and pass it on!
