Eco-fashion extraordinaire Linda Loudermillk is no stranger to TreeHugger -- we've covered Loudermilk Men, her hand-tailored Luxury-Eco line, her denim collection, and named her one of our Best Sustainable Designers. We first saw her spring 2010 collection at the NOW Showcase in New York, where she told us about her spiritual experience with nature that continues to inspire her collection. Click through for photos of her vegan silk -- harvesting silk without killing the silkworm, bamboo, and organic cotton creations -- her silk tunics (above, center) have us wishing we could spring forward to summer, now.

The collection does have its share of organic cotton (with no pesticides or heavy mineral dyes, of course) - but she also uses vegan silk for vests; silk charmeuse, lyocell, and a seaweed-based fabric for tops and tunics; bamboo for cuffs, pants and shorts; human hair and hemp in spats (pictured below, middle); organic wool in jackets; and reclaimed French lace in dresses (above). :: Linda Loudermilk.
