For today’s handout, we’re happy to present this beautiful ecoSkin Pearl Top in magenta purple. Made from 67% bamboo, 28% tencel, and 5% spandex, this gorgeous tunic embodies the brand’s focus of sustainability and high design aesthetic.

The designer of ecoSkin, Los Angeles-based Sandy Skinner, created the line to give women more choice in ethical fashion. “I wanted to give women a hip, sophisticated collection, as well as a sustainable product that would not leave a footprint on the environment,” she said. “My vision is to continually raise women’s awareness of their options.

ecoSkin imports its bamboo from China and then spins the fiber into yarn in Los Angeles so that the designer and her team can have complete control over manufacturing standards and fair trade practices. We also dig that the collection includes tencel — which is a cellulosic-fabric created by a company called Lenzing. Basically, it is 100% bio-degradable, creates optimum moisture and heat management, and does not require bleach to create a soft white color.

Want it? Leave a comment below telling us why! One person will be chosen at random to receieve the top. Complete rules and giveaway details are available here.

Don’t forget! We’re still accepting entries for the organic chocolate and cameo lamp giveaways too!

    Oh, my what a beautiful top! Of course, I am a fairly “large” gal–size 14/16, and I always need pretty tops for my job, so hopefully I can get a top in that luscious color the Vegan Babe so adores.

  • simone

    I am an eco-friendly event planner and it would be absolutely amazing to be able to have a functional/stylish example to show my clients that eco-chic clothing does not have grass growing from the hems. I absolutely adore it.

  • Jen

    Cute top! I would love to own it!

  • Shari Bowen

    Very Pretty!

  • shannon

    OOH! count me in…I really need to add some ecofriendly fashion to my wardrobe!

  • Jennifer

    Besides being a gorgeous addition to any wardrobe, I’d be proud to sport a piece that was eco-friendly and ethically created from start to finish. I love when fashion can also be so smart and carry an important message.

  • Angela

    Ooooh. what a great color for the fall! I would love one! Size small please!

  • Mary Jenkins

    yes yes i very much want it! 1. It’s just gorgeous! From it’s juicy color to its figure-flattering cut, it’s perfection!
    2. I’ve yet to own a piece of babmboo clothing! I hear its super soft!

  • Barbara Baker

    Gosh…this would be a great piece to win for sure!!!! Unfortunately, I haven’t been shopping for myself in a very long while and this would be beautiful!!!

    Plus, Purple is my baby girls favorite color (and mine) and I think I would look marvelous in it :)

  • Tiffany

    I love it because I need to add more purple to my life! I love the color but have a hard time finding beautiful, flattering tops in purple

  • Erin Fox

    my worlds are colliding with this dress!!! I love the color, the fabric looks super comfy and the shape is super flattering. I love love love that it is made from bamboo. That is my favorite plant!!!

  • Corrie Grace

    I was a fashion major and hope to set a good example in my future working world-wearing this top would definitely promote beautiful sustainability!

  • Jennifer Parrucci

    Clothing that is both eco-friendly and vegan is so hard to find. I would love to own this gorgeous top.

  • Kristen

    Beautiful top that could go well with so much! It’s especially nice as we can feel good about how the garment is made and know it was made with a small envrionmental impact. Thanks ecoSkin.

  • Holly

    Purple is my favorite color but unfortunately I don’t have any clothes that would be considered eco-friendly. I am trying to green every aspect of my life and this top would be a great start for a green wardrobe.

  • Melynda

    I would love a post-birth pick-me-up and this shirt would fit the bill!

  • HR

    That shirt is UHdorable!

  • josh

    It would be a great gift for my fiance.

  • Marie

    I would love to invest in more eco-friendly fashions, but sadly a teacher’s salary forces me to bargain shop. Purple is my favorite color, and I’ve heard bamboo clothing is amazing!

  • Kristen

    I have a trip coming up for which I need to be well-dressed, and I just spent all my money on my dogs at the vet. Seriously. All of it (but, the dogs are now A-OK). So, at the moment, fashionable, eco-friendly clothing is mostly out of my price-range, unless I happen to win this, which would make me SOOO happy!

  • Kelsey

    Oooh! I hope I win this!

  • jamie lynn

    gimme! lately i’ve been making my own clothes(and re-making goodwill finds), but this is amazing! and i love when people compliment me on a piece and i can tell them the backstory–in this case, that sustainability doesn’t mean unfashionable…

  • Mook Han Kim

    Well, I want my wife to wear it. Ha.
