eco-fashion friday finds: bamboo, baubles & bklyn


The creative force behind the Australian fashion trendsetter Rant Clothing is the husband and wife team of Sarah and Jason Hodoniczky. Rant Clothing is easy wear with an emphasis on natural fibers like bamboo, thistle and silk. Working with their textural elements and cut into flattering shapes, Rant’s breezy, modern designs have both function and comfort in mind.


(above) All Rant garments are produced ethically, 100% in Australia, and with sustainability in mind: The use of 100% greenpower for their office and website are in addition to the ongoing donations made to charities working to protect the unique Australian wildlife and rainforests.


(above) Fit for a king, or queen … We love the handmade, sustainable jewelry and wedding rings designed and created by Susan Crow and her East Fourth Street jewelry line. All of the gold in East Fourth Street’s jewelry is recycled, and all of the stones are either reused or lab-created.


(above) You’ll always need some eco-friendly and sexy underoos to wear ‘neath your latest green threads. These nifty organic cotton and bamboo undies can be found @ ontheindside’s Etsy shop.
