Punxsutawney Phil can prognosticate an early spring all he wants. Jack Frost isn’t about to cede his throne without a fight. To help our readers through the last leg of winter, we talked our friends at Indigenous into giving away not one but two eco-friendly scarf-and-glove sets. Fairly hand-knit in Peru from 100 percent organic cotton and colored with low-impact dyes, the “Novelty Loop” scarf (in emerald, Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year) and silver button cuff gloves will not only keep you cozy through the frigid weather but also guarantee women artisans a living wage. Enter now to win!

Founded over 13 years ago, Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds have turned Indigenous into a pioneer for fair-trade and organic clothing in the eco-fashion industry. Indigenous is rooted in the belief that clothing can be fashionable, yet kind to the environment by using low-impact dyes and supportive of the the people who make the clothes by preserving fair-trade wages and artisan cooperatives.
