i recently had the chance to do a photo shoot for a very interesting company based in boulder: Slowcolor. (The female model extraordinaire is a dear friend as is the owner of the company!)
Since I can’t possibly begin to describe the interesting aspects of this environmentally conscious clothing company I am going to refer readers directly to their blog here. please take some time to check it out: SLOWCOLOR.
SLOWCOLOR is a premium, fairly-traded, eco-textile brand. We create finished goods in fashion accessories and home furnishings and source fabrics to designers and companies in both apparel and home furnishing. Our products are naturally dyed and handmade with pride and passion by handloom weavers in India using all natural premium linen, GOTS certified organic cotton, Khadi (homespun) cotton and premium linen/organic cotton blends.As a major textile company and a social enterprise, SLOWCOLOR is working to bring a sea change to the entire textile industry and undo these alarming trends. By using natural plant and mineral-based dyes and Ayurvedic or safe mordants, choosing fibers such as linen that require less water to grow and grow naturally pesticide free and paying artisans a life-changing living wage, SLOWCOLOR protects the environment, rejuvenates centuries-old fabric dyeing techniques and handlooming traditions and creates fabrics that are healthy for life. Our textiles connect artisan to audience, tradition to global market and health of the planet to consumer choice.
