    Can you guess which superfood was used to color this jacket? We were so excited to learn that natural dye from amaranth would give us this striking deep pink color, which we think will look awesome at springtime barbecues and on weekend road trips. This is the perfect over shirt for those who appreciate the look and feel of a slightly oversized fit while looking for an extra dose of unique texture. 

     

    We work with seamstresses from rural communities to handcraft each of our pieces, enabling them to become independent through their skills and provide for their families. We pay 7% of the price of each of our products directly to the seamstress that manufactured it. 

    Additionally, this jacket comes with handcrafted buttons made out of Tagua tree seeds, a native species that grows in the Ecuadorian rainforest. This natural product is widely known as vegetable ivory for its resemblance to animal ivory. Tagua handcrafts are a great option to replace ivory products, by using the seed we are helping to stop elephant hunting.

    In 1 year a Tagua tree produces 20 pounds of vegetable ivory, that is equivalent to the amount of ivory a female elephant produces in a lifetime.
