ECO FABRICS

We think it is important to not only ensure ethical production of our garments, but to also be responsible for the raw materials we use.  Tracking a garment from the seed of the plant to the final sewing of a garment can be quite a challenge!  So, we have gotten creative in our use of resources and have fallen in love with traditional handwoven fabrics.  Here are some of our favorites...
