I got the chance to work with the wonderful owner, Laura, of Within Organics. I love handmade and organic, if you hadn't noticed. Here is a little bit about her and her shop.
Clothing inspires me everyday...
Especially when it literally has inspiring messages on it. I design feminine, elegant clothing with hidden positive messages like "I am beautiful," "I am blessed," and "I am radiant." Clothing is art for the body and positive thoughts are nutritious morsels for the mind. What a beautiful pairing.
I prototype most of the designs in my screen printing studio in Burlington, VT. Screen printing by hand is messy and unpredictable at times, but I love it. The garments I use are all made from sustainable fabrics like organic cotton and hemp, and many of them are made from start to finish in the USA, from the cotton field to the dye house. Cotton is the most heavily pesticide-sprayed crop out there, so I feel really good about making this major change to my wardrobe and you will too.
Additionally, a portion of the profit from your new shirt is used to fund organizations that support the health and well-being of people and the planet. You are helping to support CARE and Kiva, two global organizations that empower under served populations.
Inspiring messages and sustainable fabrics with a global contribution - all around its a beautiful thing. Enjoy!
The shirt I got to review is the I am Grateful T Shirt. It's made of organic cotton, and silk screened the design. If you look closely you can see the words I am grateful. The shirt is an off white, super soft, and very stylish! I have washed the shirt numerous times, although I never dry my cotton shirts in the dryer, and it still looks just as pretty! I love how the shirt hangs and feels on my skin. It's a little thin, but you can't see my bra through it. The thin material is idea for Houston weather, which has been unusually cool [like fall is supposed to be].
Here is a close up of the design and wording. Isn't that adorable? I think so too! This shirt is also the giveaway item! I will be handling the shipping myself with this product.
