Here at Greenheart, we love fair trade. More than love it- we eat, wear, and sleep fair trade. Needless to say, supporting safe working conditions, education, and paying a living wage is something we deeply believe in and support.
But you know what is even better than fair trade? More fair trade... the kind that uses 100% recycled materials, gives 10% back to women's education in developing nations, and has killer creative style.
The above perfectly describes our new vendor - Liz Alig. We are head over heels for her 1950's vintage designs and innovative uses of recycled materials.
One on my personal favorites is her open back, pleated sundress (with pockets) made from recycled Ghana flour sacks. The dresses are hand dyed in (using only natural sources) in a lovely light sage or rose color.
From the colorful mismatched buttons, to the breezy, heat absorbing up-cycled materials - this dress was love at first sight.
Shown above in sage.
