I am very excited about this giveaway, for several different reasons. First off, you all know I love eco-friendly products for families. I own several pieces of clothing made from organic cotton as well as bamboo, which are so much better for the environment than their counterparts, and are often of a higher quality, too! Organically grown textiles are free of harsh chemicals commonly found in fertilizers and pesticides. This is something most of us don't think about when buying our clothing. But humor me and think about it, just for a minute...Think about the impact these chemicals have on our environment.
The heavy chemicals used to grow many textiles like cotton have been known to irritate certain skin sensitivities and allergies. Organically produced cotton is free of these irritants, and is completely hypoallergenic! This is especially good news for families with babies. Babies do have sensitive skin, and our littlest family members deserve to be dressed in clothing that is free of any chemicals.
There are many other factors to consider, too. Did you know that in order to produce a mere 3 lbs of cotton, 1 lb of agricultural chemicals are used? That's a LOT of chemicals! And these very chemicals can affect the ozone layer and the water tables in the areas in which these crops are grown. This can affect our livestock, as well as the drinking water supply! Over time, this can literally poison the entire food chain.There is a "trickle effect" when growing cotton and other textile producing crops, and it can effect so many aspects of our environment in ways that people often don't realize.
Another BIG plus to buying organically produced clothing is that it is simply higher quality. The various chemicals used in non-organic clothing have been known to shorten the life of the garment by causing pilling, and even premature fading and aging of the clothing. Organic clothing is extremely breathable, since it is free of these chemicals, and wears beautifully. What does this mean for you? Your clothing will last longer! I don't know about you, but I would much rather dress my family in clothing that is made from completely organic fibers. All of the sustainable, organic clothing I own looks and feels brand new, even after several washes.
Another reason I am excited about this company is because all of their clothing is not only 100% organic, it is locally made in Asheville, North Carolina from American fibers. Spiritex supports their local economy in North Carolina by providing jobs with fair labor practices, and by giving the citizens the opportunity to buy superior products that are produced locally. There is no outsourcing. These items are sold not only online, but in a brick and mortar boutique in the community in which these garments are made. Now THAT is something I can feel good about!
Spiritex produces unique, fashion-forward, sustainable garments that are absolutely beautiful. I love their selection! They literally have something for everyone, too! They produce organic clothing for men, women, children, and even babies!
Here are some of my favorite items from this wonderful company. I especially love the short Organic Juliet Dress in Aqua! It is absolutely stunning!
Aren't these pieces to die for? I love the clean lines and feminine grace of these items. Any woman would feel like a Goddess in any of these beautiful dresses! Oh, speaking of Goddesses, they even have a Goddess Dress! But Spiritex offers more than just stunning clothing for women. I also love their baby clothing!
I received this adorable onesie for my review. I am a huge Beatles fan, so naturally, I loved this whimsical, "Beetles" design. How fun! I was immediately quite impressed by the softness of this onesie. It is made from an incredibly soft, high quality organic cotton. The inks used in their onesies are also eco-friendly and are non-toxic and water based. The colors in this garment were rich and vibrant, and that there was great attention to the detail on the 4 beetles! Now I don't know which is John, Paul, George, or Ringo, but it's still such a fun design! This is a must have for any Beatles fan! It fits right in with my Beatles themed nursery! (Yes, I really DO have a Beatles themed nursery...I have the John Lennon Real Love and Musical Parade crib bedding, lamp, rugs, wall-hangings and a coordinating mobile that plays "Imagine". My bassinet is even a part of this awesome collection!)
The construction of this onesie was also very solid. There were no crooked hems or loose threads, and the snaps on this piece are sturdy and expertly applied. I also liked that the head-opening is very, very generous and allows for easy painless dressing of even the squirmiest of babies. (Like my Sophie, who is always on the go and hates sitting still, even for a second!)
Overall, I am very happy with the quality of this onesie. I have washed it a few times now, and it still looks brand new. Even after Sophie got food all over it! I have not experienced any pilling or fading, and the garment retained it's shape perfectly, even after several wears!
I highly recommend clothing from Spiritex. They offer beautiful, fun garments for the whole family that are completely organic and sustainable. These items are also completely American made, and support the local community in Asheville, North Carolina. I have been to Asheville before, as North Carolina is a neighboring state, and it is a wonderful community. The people are friendly and the area is rich with natural beauty and culture. So if you've never bought organic clothing, why not give it a shot? Spiritex has a beautiful selection, and I think you'll be quite pleased with the difference in clothing made from organic textiles!
