HER Design Incorporates Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Wool In Fashion Accessories
We covered HER Design's high-fashion handbags about this time last year. Their recent foray into use of a CTC certified material of construction, however, made a re-visit worthwhile. Pictured is the new "Techtonic", a unisex work bag suitable for 15-inch laptops. Features include pocketing for cables, files, and magazines, a hidden tuck lock closure, contrast lining, and padded dividers. In Cradle-to-Cradle certified wool flannel, from Pendleton, with Vegan Leather trim. See the women's version, the "Leaf," pictured below the fold.
Christopher Riegle of HER Design remarks that "I don't think anyone else is using C2C materials in fashion/accessories. Or EcoSpun as lining material, come to think of it".
We're going to have to challenge HER's claim on this, based on a report we just received from the rapidly-thawing North Pole. Santa Claus apparently is so concerned about Climate Change that he's become quite the TreeHugger. Our source say's he's going to ditch the polyester outfit this year and that the sleigh has already been re-upholstered with C2C Pendleton wool. Good going Santa (if you're reading this); but what's that sack going to be made of?
