When you want to feel warm, safe, and protected. This sweater like sweatshirt is silken and draping, and feels like a sweet hug from Mother Earth with all it's pure and natural ingredients. It's awesome for before and after yoga or exercise.
Tops made from a tree and organic cotton are beautiful things! Our Birth of the Sun top is crafted from eucalyptus tree wood pulp so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. Don't worry though, eucalyptus feels like silk and doesn't at all resemble tree bark ;)
It contains 5% spandex, which is a petroleum-based ingredient. Without it, your sweatshirt wouldn't stretch and no one- you or the planet- would benefit from a product nobody wants because we refused to add a stretchy element to it. Until we can all exercise in loose woven flood pants and tunics (unlikely), or until someone invents a plant-based stretch fiber (yay science!), this is the best we've got. So much better than 100% plastic though, don't you think?
Our eucalyptus is sourced from sustainable tree farms in Austria and neighboring countries, where the trees are grown for fibers so you don't have to fret about deforestation. The eucalyptus is knitted into fabric in Los Angeles, CA. Nadya, my best friend, and my super talented seamstress, hand sews each and every piece in her home in the desert in Southern California. I (Hayley), hand dye and hand screen print everything in my basement in Northwest Connecticut. (Very, very glamorous, I know!)
95% eucalyptus 5% spandex, 100% cotton threads, organic indigo dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
This sweatshirt fits true to size and is a knit so has a sweatshirt cut, but feels more like a sweater.
