TWO OF A KIND
Some things just go better together, like Funchi’s glove-and-headband combo. Each set is knit from 100 percent certified-organic cotton, with a seamless construction that keeps your extremities chafe-free.
THAT’S A WRAP
For cold-weather comfort that won’t weigh you down, layer up with Indigenous Designs’ “Airplane” wrap. It’s fairly crafted in Peru from ultrafine organic cotton and low-impact dyes, plus an easy élan that delivers instant sophistication.
THE STRAIGHT DOPE
From VPL designer Victoria Bartlett comes a sleek tuxedo jacket that’s as easy to dress up as it is down. Clad in soft terry jersey, the American-made topper offers a fresh take on Le Smoking that’s completely critter-friendly.
C’MON GET HAPPI
A cowl, scarf, and capelet rolled in one, Happiknit’s hand-knit neck-warmer keeps things super-snuggly in 100 percent organic, fair-trade cotton.
BAG, YOU’RE IT
The perfect accessory for a quick getaway—to warmer climes, perhaps?—Matt & Nat’s faux-suede weekender features tone-on-tone stitching, a lining made from post-consumer recycled bottles, and pockets aplenty to stow your gear.
Banish the winter blues with one of All Knitwear’s eclectically patterned pom-pom beanies. Brooklynite Annie Larson cobbles each hat together on her Brother KH-965i knitting machine, which means she’s open to requests—if you ask nicely.
Mustard microfiber on the outside, gray cotton on the inside, the Trialide tote by Ninu is a bag for all seasons. Artist Sandra Comas handcrafts her wares in Turin, Italy, using locally sourced and vintage fabrics that add polish with history.
FIT TO BE TIED
Brave GentleMan’s tweedy bow ties only look like they’re made of wool. They’re actually a cunning blend of organic cotton and recycled hemp, stiffened with interfacing derived from recycled plastic bottles. Each one is handmade in New York City’s historic Garment District under fair-labor conditions.
IT’S A CINCH
Cliff’s reversible cork belts are lighter and more supple than leather but they distress with age just like the real deal would. Plus, they’re machine-washable, which is more than you can say for their cowhide-derived counterparts.
Use it to manage loose change, makeup brushes, or your gaggle of gadgets. Whatever your schtick, the Pansy Maiden’s tassel-embellished pouch is deserving of superhero status, particularly since its faux-suede surface offers plastic bottles a second lease on life.
TOE THE LINE
Keep toes toasty with extra-thick socks from Brooklyn Industries. The wind-powered enterprise paired the planet-friendly credentials of recycled cotton and hemp with the durability of acrylic and polyester, plus a hint of nylon for stretch.
No need to have a cow to put your money where it counts. Bourgeois Boheme’s faux-leather wallet is lined with equally phony “lizard skin,” along with a casually distressed appearance that will have even discerning types fooled.
