There’s also that satisfaction when you buy handmade, right? You’re helping support an artist who’s doing the thing she loves, and you’re keeping your money away from the big box stores and large corporations. Who knew that buying a skirt could be a political statement?
If you also want your handmade purchases to be in line with your eco-friendly philosophies, it’s easy as pie to find crafters making refashioned and organic pieces for your wardrobe. Here is some of the handmade, eco-friendly clothing I’ve been eying for summer!
Maxi skirts are super hip right now, and this comfy-looking organic hemp skirt from Conscious Clothing is just right for a summer evening or even a trip to the beach. Don’t you just love a skirt with pockets?
I mentioned this little gem in my newsletter, but I shamefully mixed up the name of the seller with another of my Etsy clothing faves. This awesome mod dress from Pierogi Picnic is made from reclaimed t-shirts.
These organic jersey tank tops by VelvetLeaf are perfect for summer. I ordered a pair in white and aquamarine, and I love them! The sailor collar is super cute, and they’re a nice weight for pairing with summer shorts and skirts.
