It's Time for a Spring Fling (with fair trade cotton that is)
Posted on March 22, 2012 by admin
The sun is shinning, a cool breeze blows, and seagulls croon in the distance.
How wonderful it would be if this was all happening on a tropical beach paradise and not the city streets of Chicago.
If only the shining sun meant warm sand, not steamy sidewalks, the breeze brought tropical scents, not empty chip bags, and the seagulls were not not the trash heap circling fiends we have here.
However, do not despair my similarly land locked friends!
The daffodils are peeping their way through the soil, and spring is nudging it's way into our hearts. Even in the city, the season tells us is time for the age old, much loved tradition of dusting of our sandals and making our way out of hibernation to purchase a new deliciously cool cotton sundress.
Preferably one with pockets.
Below are a few of my favorites from Mata Traders...
All of the above are 100% woven fair-trade cotton, use natural dyes, and have hand block printed and/or hand stitched details.
