If during this bitter-cold winter season you are all about bundling up in the coziest coverings, Thistle & Thorne Knitwear is the newest social and environmentally conscious accessory line you’re about to fall warmly-hatted head over heels for.
Company creator Krystyn Coombs, founder of Rider Knits Organic Knitwear, has teamed up with sustainability stylista Celeena Sayani to bring fair-trade to the fashion forefront. Sourcing their sumptuously stitched accessories from an incredible ethical manufacturing house in Bolivia, Thistle & Thorne Knitwear tops off the altruistic trend by using completely recyclable labeling and packaging. The naturally-dyed designs may come in one-size-fits-all formats, but each accessory appears to be chicly unique, a benefit that comes from the genuine hand-crafting. From just reading the Thistle & Thorne mission statement, it’s easy to assume the adornments would be aesthetically comparable to hemp hippie-wear, but the collection made from Organic Alpaca looks instead like a glamorous blend of Vogue meeting Vermont ski slopes.
So, why not drape yourself in the luxe looks of Thistle & Thorne Knitwear and simultaneously support women in a developing country? Take some social responsibility by picking up a posh piece from this (literally) close-knit community and lend a marvelously mittened hand to humanity.
