  • New Collection

    The last year has been very busy for me. With the opening of our flagship store, SPUN Sustainable Collective and the studio, I was worried that there would never be enough time to put a new collection together. But after almost a year of waiting, SPUN fans were finally introduced to the latest collection, Petals.

     

    I am extremely proud of what my team and I were able to create with this new collection. The use of prints and a special woven organic cotton fabric joins our favorite organic cotton jersey to bring the 11 styles together. Since SPUN doesn't offer seasonal collections, it was imperative that the styles we included were ones that can be worn year-round.

    The Petals collection was inspired by the changing seasons in Seattle and the neighborhood that surrounds SPUN Sustainable Collective. The artists and students that live in the area dress in a casual, comfortable and eclectic way that inspired the looks for the collection. Lots of new skirts, dresses and tops that manage to stay true to the SPUN sensibility while offering a fresh point of view from past SPUN collections. Don't worry, you can still incorporate these pieces into your closet and wear them with ease just like all of your other SPUN favorites.

    I hope that you love wearing the pieces in the new Petals collection as much as I do!

    xoxo, Sara

  • On TV Talking Eco-Fashion

    Last month, I was contacted by Tom Watson who is the King County EcoConsumer in Seattle. If you know Tom, then you know that not only is he a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about recycling, eco and going green, but he also loves supporting local business. Tom wanted to know if I was interested in joining him on the Seattle TV station, Q13 Fox, for 3 live segments and talk about organic fashion. Even hearing the words "Live TV" made my stomach turn, but I jumped at the opportunity to educate consumers about eco clothing.

    Flash forward to yesterday when the very personable and fun to talk to Kaci Aitchison of Q13 Fox show "Mornings with Kaci" came by the store to chat! Not only did we get to talk about eco fashion and local artists (my favorite topics) but she also got her hands dirty and made a dress! Thanks Kaci for coming by and a big thank you to Tom for the support!

    Here are some clips from all the action from yesterday's show!
