Today’s giveaway is brought to you by WoolyMossRoots sponsor- Sweet Skins.
We’ve known Mira, the owner of Sweet Skins, for many years now. Once upon a time we met at the Eugene Saturday Market, where we had booths set up near each other. (You long time readers will remember me talking about Mira and her clothing company here before in previous giveaways.) Mira is a hardworking mom of four, and started Sweet Skins in her garage back in 2004. She truly has a gift for designing clothes that are comfortable and beautiful. Mira uses environmentally friendly fabrics and beyond that- on so many levels- her business practices reflect that love and care for the earth. Sweet Skins clothing is wonderful for everyday wear, yoga, being cozy around the house… you name it. For under layers I love the Bodyglove Full Tanks and Bodyglove Cropped Tanks. They are so incredibly comfortable, I wear them all the time. The Shanti Flow Top is another favorite of mine, and my Sweet Skins pants are often worn under dresses and tunics. I’m grateful Sweet Skins is offering a giveaway here today and giving a special discount just for WoolyMossRoots readers!
What’s new at Sweet Skins?
Sweet Skins: One of our newest developments has been to address the problem of what to do with small scraps of leftover fabric. We try to be conscious about the waste we produce and we wanted to find a solution to our growing piles of scrap hemp and organic cotton. The solution? Well, we found a few. We first started with making baby scrap garments including the incredibly cute, multi-colored Blessed Baby Tee. We had a lot more to use though, so we started trimming the pieces into the super useful squares that make up our scrap bundles. [Note from Taryn: we have these around our house and they really come in handy for so many things!] The colors and fabric types vary with each unique bundle making it a fun surprise each time you get one. These scraps are great for baby and beauty care, cleaning and crafting, or anything else you can think of! We’re so excited to have taken another step towards producing our clothes with as little waste as possible. We even had the fabulous owner and creator of Sweet Skins write a little blog about these awesome bundles. Check it out here.
