We’ve had them on Twitter Thursday before — and now hessnatur is back with more environmentally-conscious clothing for the Ecorazzi crowd!

As we mentioned earlier, hessnatur defines their designs as “beautiful natural clothing that respects the health and human rights of those who create it.” It’s no wonder then that eco-conscious celebrities such as Cameron Diaz have been spotted in the brand. The company also makes it a point to tell customers what exactly goes into each piece of clothing — including how animal threads (like wool) are raised and sustainably managed.

For today’s giveaway, hessnatur is providing an Organic Cotton Corduroy Duffle, beautiful Organic Pima Cotton Sweater, and an Alpaca and Wool Sweater. They’re also offering a 25% discount for Ecorazzi readers on all of their collection with free shipping and returns. Simply enter the coupon code: L1V001. Offer is good through December 29th, 2009.

    Since I don’t tweet and don’t wear or gift items made with wool, I’m so happy that the option for commenting here is to win the corduroy which would be a very nice holiday gift for my friends :)

  • Megan

    Because I live in San Francisco where green fashions and sweaters are all the rage. :)

  • Mae

    Warm clothes sound amazing now! The temp suddenly dropped and its feeling like winter!!

  • Noelle

    I meant to add that I would like to be more sensitive to more natural and green products. Clothing would be a great next step!

  • Joanne Schultz

    It’s getting cold in NY state. As I’ve been unemployed for a year and oil is pricey, my thermostat will be turned down and I will need to start dressing warmer!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • kelly g.

    what David said.

  • Julie L

  • Melissa Bowman

    What more could you want in a coat, cute, green, and keeps you warm! Sign me up :) I live near chicago AKA the windy city, and everyone here needs a good winter jacket, including me :) I love the idea of green clothing that is fashionable!

  • Cathy Herard

    I need some warm green in my closet because I live in the Northeast and it is just plain cold this time of year plus I haven’t had anything new in years, literally! :(

  • Mama Veg

    I’m an eco vegan and don’t have much that fits because I was pregnant last winter. I’m back to my normal size and in need of sprucing up my wardrobe.

  • Mary L.

    Always on the search for a warm vegan coat! Love their style!

  • Jenna

    I’m in the cold, gray wilds of Ohio and I’d rather stay warm without harming the planet!

  • Kristine

    Love when green looks so good (and saves me some cold, hard green!)

  • Gunda Nolan

    Absolutely LOVE the G-O-R-G coat!!! Just my style, really really nice!
    Would love to own it and wear it:)

  • Megan B

    I would love to have the coat because I go to school in Oklahoma and it gets a lot colder up there then in Texas. I love to eat healthy and by organic items, but its hard to find on a collage student budget. It would be nice to win because It would be one less thing for me to spend the little money I make on. Thank you for the chance to win one.

  • Daniel Bates

    I would love to win this for my sister for her birth day, I know that she would love it and i know that it would look great on her.

  • Pam

    I’d love to win this, corduroy is my alltime fave fabric for autumn/winter as it’s so comfy, warm & stylish… and I think the detail on this piece is so cool and fashionable!

  • Eli

    Love organic clothing, hard to find in the small town where I live. That coat looks warm! ^_^ Green styles rock!

  • Emily N.

    It gets really cold here in the Midwest, and I hate wearing the same boring coat every day so I’d love to win so I could mix a new eco-friendly coat into my wardrobe!

  • Claudia

    because its beautiful,compfy,warm and “green”! and our Winters are cold,harsh,windy and white :)

  • Pam Ferry

    The Pima cotton sweater would be perfect for Oklahoma weather. Here layering is the key to being comfortable. If you don’t like the weather, just stick around, it will soon change !

  • Pamela

    This would be super cool to win… my current winter coat really needs replacing and never was stylish to begin with. The colors pictured look so pretty! Would love to snuggle up in this all winter here in the Midwest!

    They may be eco-conscious, but they are far from vegan. They use horn, mother-of-pearl, and silk. And I doubt that those materials are all naturally shed horns, cocoons, and shells. And I’d love some proof on whether or not those sheep, goats, alpaca, and yaks (which are also endangered), have to endure mulesing, and are allowed to live out their entire lives. I really don’t see why “eco-friendly” clothing companies can’t produce apparel with no animals products whatsoever. Bamboo fibers, for example, can be manipulated in ways that rival the texture of wool, cashmere, and rayon.
