Re-usable Shopping Bags--The Better Choice

Re-usable Shopping Bags--The Better Choice

In accordance with our environmental policies, we have decided to phase out all single-use plastic polybags.  As of October 2019 we will no longer be using any plastic polybags in our packaging.

We have replaced polybag packaging with re-usable drawstring bags for shipments.  We have also developed a line a fashionably fun re-usable tote, shopping and drawstring bags made from organic cotton and hand block printed.  They are sturdy enough to carry groceries, books and your last minute shopping needs, but lightweight enough to fold up into your purse or backpack as a carry everywhere solution.  They come in lots of fun colors and prints, fabric qualities and sizes.  

We also have our fun and very strong, crochet upcycle marketing bags for those of you who like making a bold statement at the Farmer's Market!

In the future, we will also plan to introduce an additional packaging option for both manufacturing and online orders using compostable/bio-degradable made from corn starch (non food grade).

International Women's Day #SheEmpowersHer
International Women's Day #SheEmpowersHer

March 06, 2020

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a global day of recognition of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements—and aspirations—of women. The day is also a call to action to increase equality of opportunity between men and women.

This year’s campaign theme of #SheEmpowersHer is a reminder that we are all in this together and all supporting each other, regardless of nationality or socio-economic status.  

....

The reality is women’s empowerment is a gradual process.  In the context of our work, it is a process of skills building and gain responsibility, opportunities.  It takes a community and it takes the support of all individuals.  Everyone matters. 

Respect, diginity, education, opportunity, support matter. 

It takes all this and more.  The reality is, we all empower each other one step at a time.

Fit/Sizing/Care

FIT

Our styles are meant to give room to breath and move.  We use fine tailoring coupled with a relaxed, comfortable fit.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

WASHCARE

All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.  

CARE for 100% cotton

We recommend cold water machine wash (up to 30 degrees celsius) with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments/homewares (except for quilts).  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.  

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.

Garments/homewares are dyed or printed using AZO free, low-impact, pigment or reactive dyes unless otherwise noted.  These dyes are color-fast, but care should still be taken to wash with like colors to retain the vibrancy of the colors.

CARE for 100% cotton quilts

For quilts with cotton fill, we recommend spot or light surface cleaning only with a damp cloth and mild detergent.  Eco-friendly dry cleaning is also recommended. 

CARE for herbal/vegetable dye items

Vegetable dyes are not colorfast and are specifically marked in the product description.  We strongly recommend that all vegetable dye products be washed once before use in a cold water wash with minimal detergent.  Wash separately. Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  Iron on reverse side.  Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Please keep in mind that indigo dye does continually fade over time.  This is the nature of true indigo dye and is not a defect, but rather a sign of the 'living' nature of the dye.

CARE for silk and cotton/silk

For our silk and cotton silk garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Dry cleaning using an eco-friendly service is also recommended.

CARE for linen and cotton/linen

For our linen and cotton linen garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.
