I just discovered on an eco-minded line of clothing called, Indigenous and was impressed to learn that they’ve been around since 1994, offering Fair Trade, handmade clothes, created by artisans from around the globe. Kudos to founders, Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds — gotta support their commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
All their green goods are made from natural and organic fibers — free-range Alpaca and Merino wool, organic cotton, Tencel and silk, utilizing low impact dyes, and they’re reasonably priced. I like the V-neck Mock Layer ($62) and the organic cotton cable ($94) (above L & R, respectively.) start your conscious shopping @ indigenousdesigns.com
