    I adore the mIlitary jacket and the relaxed pullover – both are amazing.

  4. sindorhey says:

    I liked your blog but the shop is where I am able to spend plenty of time dreaming about owning your original pieces.:)

  5. BC says:

    Although I really like NEARLY* every piece of clothing on your website, I’m afraid the only way I’ll ever get to (i.e., be able to afford to) wear any of them is by winning something in one of your giveaways. Crossing my fingers …

    * Zippers are my enemy.

  6. islandwanderer says:

    Modern pullover. You can sneakily wear something as nice as this to work at your lame office job, and while everyone is complimenting you on how nice it looks, you think to yourself, Ha! They have no idea how freaking comfortable I am. Losers.

    Urban fingerless gloves. Great for playing guitar when it’s cold outside, and these ones don’t make you look like a hobo! Or at least a very well-dressed and chic hobo.

    Airplane wrap. It needs to be worn while sipping a cup of hot herbal tea and gazing forlornly into the rain outside. Yes. It must be mine.

  7. supermankisses says:

    I love the Winter Coat in Black, it’s so pretty! And your pullovers are super cute!!

    I was already signed up for your newsletter and I already LIKED your Facebook page, username is kleimanlaw.

    I also shared this contest on my facebook page, kleimanlaw and tweeted the contest on my twitter page, @DianeLori.

    What I love about all the clothing is how soft and comfortable it looks. So you can really look fabulous AND be comfortable at the same time. When does that ever happen.? There were so many pieces that I loved, way too many to write down here, but the one piece I was instantly attracted to was THE WINTER COAT in BLACK. It also looked adorable with the adorable chapeau(I hope I spelled that correctly). The coat is beautiful, stylish, warm and never goes out of style.

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway and good luck to all.

    I love the scarves and pajamas!

  45. hfantastic says:

    Despite the comparably tiny selection for men, three pieces definitely caught my eye. The organic rancher shirt in black is stunningly modern and down-to-earth, though the shirt also looks really good in the blue and yellow pattern. The men’s shawl collar looks extremely comfortable, and in deep charcoal, is a solid choice for the present-day sophisticated environmentalist.

    I couldn’t help but wander into the women’s section as well, for the heck of it, and my favorite pieces, though difficult to pick, are probably the summer shawl, which seems so carefree and versatile with almost limitless combinations in outfit matchings, the luxury chic tee, which has an amazing cut on the waistline and even more amazing work on the sleeves that’s both understated and elegant, and of course, the slightly asymmetrical winter coat with really rather remarkable details worked into the knitted collars and sleeves (all the better that it’s low-impact and fair trade).

    My mom’s birthday is coming up… I may just add these pieces to the list of gifts I’m considering. :)

  46. keephopeinyourlife says:

    It’s too difficult to choose any one item from the collection. All of the styles appeal to my sense of style. I can see myself in any item. I do need a coat and I do love your black winter coat. All great stuff.

    I am loving everything on Indigenous – so glad to be introduced to them!

    By far my favorite is the Urban Fingerless Gloves – cool knit pattern and goes up the whole forearm – super swank! Going to have to get the strawberry and black for sure, maybe a third…

    I love this fun and flirty Ruched Scoop top:

    And this unique flower scarf is way cute!

  72. laurenmdavis (@laurenmdavis717) says:

    Very enthused to be introduced to such a lovely site. As an interior design student, I strive to also incorporate eco-friendly, organic, and sustainable aspects to my designs. All of these clothes are lovely as well as organic and eco-friendly which I love! My favorite pieces would have to be:

    Organic Tassel Scarf

    Drape neck black dress

    Angle tunic

    Weekender cardigan

    Savvy zip

    Thank you so much for your time, your clothes are so lovely.

  73. yoginiontheloose says:

    The Melange Cocoon is divine! We’re in the middle of a cold snap so anything named “Cocoon” sounds just right. I love something that’s functional (warm!) but with some sexy flare! It’s a dramatic garment but makes just the right amount of statement.

    The Angle V! This is exactly what I like to wear out to dinner with some skinny jeans, boots and big earrings. All 3 colors are magnificent!

    This winter coat is phenom – it’s the curved hem and the knit detail at the cuffs and collar that make this a standout. I love the length, I’m a yoga teacher and I could easily top my yoga pants with this, slide into my boots and I’d look totally presentable.

    I love seeing what everybody loves too!

  74. barbara says:

    Glad I found you,,,love everything and so Earth caring :)

  75. Ang Leisure says:

    I love the loose pullovers and scarves.

  77. luviebelle says:

    never heard of this company but I’m really digging your organic cotton tassel scarves! That hooded geo wrap sweater is just amazing, love the two tone look and the belt. Love that oatmeal color, it is the perfect shade to go with any outfit in my wardrobe. I will support anything that is fair trade, and being organic is an extra bonus!
