Clothing is one of the essentials of the modern human being’s daily existence and cotton remains one of the most frequently utilized textiles in today’s fashions. The process of manufacturing regular cotton textiles is an arduous, toxic process, in which many harmful chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides are introduced into the environment. There are other, more eco-friendly choices out there — one fashion purveyor that offers some great-looking alternatives is Soul-Flower, a company that creates many of its fashions for men, women, and children from organic cotton and hemp.
Soul-Flower was founded in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1991. The company’s colorful and stylish shirts, dresses and casual outfits are an appealing fashion choice for the long hot days of summer; while their durable hemp pants, shorts and hoodies are attentive to the needs of the outdoor enthusiast.
Sustainability is the company’s middle name when it comes to supplying things like free biannual catalogs in the spring and fall (made of 90% recycled paper and online version). Soul-Flower also gives back in resource conservation by planting trees under the Arbor Foundation, with a 3:1 ratio (trees: catalog) initiative.
The Soul-Flower website offers another unique shopping option, a customer can purchase their clothing as a complete, well-put-together outfit (above) — from hoody, to earrings, to rope sandals or messenger bag — all for under $200. I have never seen that before through an online store and it inspires true creativity and ease of shopping. Gift cards are also available from amounts of $10 to $500 — the perfect gift for recent high school and college graduates! See more @ soul-flower.com
