If you're anything like me, you don’t like baring it all, at least not all the time. You don’t want to walk around all summer wearing what amounts to a glorified string bikini. And I bet there are lots other women out there who feel the same. So here’s our challenge: how do you cover up a little while keeping cool? How can you look elegant when the temperatures start to rise?
Enter the mesh knit. Or the net. Or the lace. In all its manifestations, openwork is the key to my stylish summer. That’s why I did my own personal (internal) happy dance when I saw this trend on the rise. And while I’ll be investing in the look while it's the height of fashion.
This spring & summer, Indigenous has a new gorgeous array of open knits to fall in love with. Each is slow fashion at it's finest: handcrafted and ethically made, with incredible attention to detail. Best of all, they feel like clouds on your body. (Yep, I tested them all… For your benefit, of course.)
Closet and drawers over-filled with cheap clothes you’ll never wear again? We’ve got the cure.
Slow fashion is about investing in clothing that you love. It’s about buying clothes that are made well, and made to last. But ethically made fashion can be affordable for every-day too. And we want to prove it.
Enter examples 1 and 2. These eco-friendly T-Shirts—one for women and one for men—are made using the same high standards as all the clothes we make. Both are made from soft organic cotton. Each is colored with safe, low-impact dyes. And each is sewn by fair trade artisans earning a livable wage and while working in safe conditions. Yet both T’s are available at a price anyone can afford.
