Beklina Ethical Fashion Store: Fall '07
The online ethical fashion store Beklina has got in contact to tell us that not only are they stocking Stewart and Brown's Fall collection, but they also have two more exciting labels for us to enjoy. Beau Soleil is an fashion label by New York designer Anne Salvatore Epstein. She uses bamboo fabric, vegetable-dyed organic cottons, tencel, which is made from eucalyptus trees, and recycled leather trims. We love her sexily cut and metal accessorized dresses (above right).
Beklina are also very excited about their new organic cotton print line which has been developed in collaboration with the illustrator Jill Bliss. So far they have these beautiful journals (pictured above) ready to sell, but watch this space to see more locally handmade products appear. The journals use recycled gridded paper and the "Helsinki Tents" fabric is 100% organic chambray, silk screened by hand in small batches in San Francisco. :: Beklina :: Blissen :: Beau Soleil
