In an effort to stay on top of the latest in green fashion coming out of design shops, we’re happy to announce a new eco-friendly clothing line launching later this month called Beau Soleil. The designs come from rising fashion designer, Anne Salvatore Epstein, who named the brand after, uniquely, her favorite type of oyster. Yum.
From the release,
“Epstein uses fabric made out of bamboo, a sustainable material, vegetable-dyed organic cottons, tencel, which is made from eucalyptus tress, and vintage as well as recycled leather trims. The companyâ€™s focus is on sustainability, fair trade and labor, as well as organic raw materials with the end goal to offer consumers environmentally healthy clothing choices without sacrificing fashion.”
Not bad, right? If you’ve never tried bamboo clothing, you’re missing out. As a guy that enjoys t-shirts, I can honestly say that it’s a quality fabric that quickly makes you forget cotton. It’s great to see more designers embracing it.
