Waste not, want not, does not really apply to fashion. Every season designers give us a delectable new array of goodies to choose from and even though most of my clothes (ok, all of my clothes) from last year are in perfect condition and able to be worn again I am usually tired of them and ready for something new. So I clean out my closet (I do keep and re-wear quite a few pieces) and then re-stock with all the new must-haves my wallet will allow!
This does however make me feel a tad wasteful and I was only too thrilled when I found a designer who uses recycled cashmere fabric to create gorgeous, artsy and eco-friendly sweaters. Burning Torch creates, each season limited edition sweaters that are patched together with luxurious cashmere extras left over from production thus not wasting any fabric. Plus, these sweaters are so gorgeous and timeless you will reach for them season after season. It’s a win win, look good while doing good! Burning Torch recycled cashmere sweaters available at www.bluebee.com and www.burningtorchboutique.com.
