Seeing double? You and us both. Eco-fashion designer Eviana Hartman of Bodkin is working on a capsule collection for ethical clothing label Hessnatur, set to debut this fall. The 13-piece lineup will comprise modular knits for all body types, including a moto-inspired winter coat of dense yet lightweight virgin boiled wool, an equestrian-esque patchwork legging, and an ultra-thick jersey that hugs your curves.

Several pieces are designed to be multipurpose, such as the oversize wool-and-cashmere cardi that can be worn asymmetrically as a tunic or scarf. “I love pieces that are extremely useful but elevated by unusual silhouette and detail,” Hartman says.
“Sustainability and fashion can, and must, coexist,” says Wolf Luedge, Hessnatur’s CEO
Comprising Hessnatur’s signature cashmere, wool, silk, organic cotton, and fabric blends, “Hessnatur by Eviana Hartman” is tailored for the fashion-driven urbanite, with modern takes on familiar wardrobe staples.
“I am excited to work with Hessnatur because they pioneered the ecological approach to clothing decades before “green” became a buzzword,” Hartman adds. “Their resources, quality, and textiles are wonderful, and given my wish to design sustainably, there couldn’t be a better mentor.”
The feeling, it seems, is mutual. “When I saw Eviana Hartman’s first collection, I felt she represented everything we believe—and practice—at Hessnatur, ” says Wolf Luedge, the company’s CEO. “Then I met her and found Eviana as committed as we are in the belief that sustainability and fashion can, and must, coexist.”
