Green Fashion Monday: A Clay-Dyed Dress
This “Mod Hoody Tunic/Dress” ($75) from Earth Creations is a creatively designed piece that’s versatile and comfortable enough to wear for a variety of occasions: to work, out to dinner, traveling, or just around the house. It’s got a draping cowl neck and is made of bamboo and organic cotton.
Like the rest of its line (tunics, pants, dresses, and a range of other items made of sustainable fabrics, including hemp), its earthy color was created by an ancient clay-dyeing method that protects people and the planet from the dangers of modern dyeing processes. The company’s founder, incidentally, was inspired during a bike ride in the mountains to create a clothing company that solely dyes with mud, clay, and dirt.
