Love the earth, love your clothes


Just heard about some folks who run a natural clothing store that pays fair wages, teaches women to sew, and uses only organic cotton to make simple, high-quality, timelessly styled dresses, capes, ponches, and more.

Typically, on an average size T-shirt, between a quarter to a half pound of pesticides are sprayed. …A major principle that guides us is the belief that all workers should be paid fairly. To this end we strive to pay fair wages and to teach and guide low-income individuals who wish to provide for their basic needs and the needs of their families.” (more here)
