kuyichi – eco conscious jeanswear


This young fashion company with a positive attitude strives to do things right. Their vision includes fair trade practices, cutting edge casual style and organic materials. Netherlands-based Kuyichi buys their organic cotton primarily from Peruvian farmers — who are encouraged to partner with them. Cool stuff available in Europe…for now. We hope to see them on our shores soon.

Terra Plana – eco chic shoes


I’m all for second hand threads — vintage treasures thrill me to no end. But I just can’t step into used shoes. Sorry. So for my spring flings, once again, I turn to Terra Plana. Pictured above is Helena, £90 sizes 36-41. Terra Plana strives to be the most sustainable designer shoe brand in the world. Their shoes are ethically produced and this particular pair of high steps is: partly hand-stitched, made of recycled materials with super flexible soles and vegetable tanned leather, minimally glued, locally sourced. Spring forward with eco style and comfort.
