This week’s word cynosure I wrote about last week and you can read the post here.
Today I want to talk about one of the many cool arty finds I have discovered embarking on setting up my boutique. I love the idea of hand made clothes. I especially love to make my own, but am always interested and delighted to see other artists design and sew clothes, especially when they are ecologically conscious! One of my neighbors and turns out, well known, designers is Denise Shardlow of Shardlow Designs.
She comes up with arty, fun creations sewn with eco friendly soy and bamboo fabric. Love it! So comfortable yet, chic. I will be featuring her clothing line at my new shop, so stop on by in March or visit Denise online!!

Ohhh, I just love this Friday Find of mine!! It makes me want to get up and dance a jig!! My find is a small online boutique full of organic clothing. Conscious Clothing( I love the name!) has clothing made from hemp, organic cotton, and, oh just read what the owner says herself ‘Specializing in hemp, soy, bamboo, organic cotton, wool, and recycled fibers. I believe in making fashions that have a low environmental impact. Conventional cotton is one of the most heavily treated commercial crops in the world. The amount of pesticides and herbicides that go into producing a single T shirt is astounding! Clothing conservation and choosing new fabrics that have been produced sustainably is my goal.
I am a mother of 3 lovely children in Lowell, Michigan. We have a large organic garden and small orchard which sustains our family almost year round. If my hands aren’t sewing, they’re in the dirt!’
I love this mindfulness about what you wear, and artistically done also, what more could a green buyer want?!
