Last Wednesday marked the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and arguably now it’s more important than ever to tune in to Mother Nature. As a result of worldwide isolation and social distancing regulations, we’ve seen the earth’s environment change for the better in just a matter of weeks.
With a significant decrease in air pollution in the natural world and its inhabitants flourishing, the last couple of months have served as a stark reminder about our impact on the only planet that we have. With a motto of ‘Responsibly Built For The Long Haul’, San Francisco based Taylor Stitch is one brand who’s pledge to the environment has gone from strength to strength in recent years.
This year is no exception and the brand has released a limited product capsule through a partnership with Botanical Colours and natural dye artists Kristin Arzt & Anna Meier.
The core of the collection is a selection of tried and tested Taylor Stitch favorites, utilizing entirely natural dyes. Released in limited quantities from April 22nd, Taylor Stitch has selected the Organic Cotton Jack Everyday Oxford shirt, the fully upcycled, zero water Heavy Bag Tee, and the Meier Camp Pant for the capsule.
All of these items are core to the brand’s roster and celebrate a transition to nearly 100% organic cotton usage across the Taylor Stitch range. In addition, the Heavy Bag Tee is made from entirely upcycled fibers and requires no water to produce.
There will also be super limited one-of-one ‘Artist Series’ pieces available, created by Kristin Arzt and Anna Meier. It costs just $1 to enter a raffle for each of these pieces respectively, with all proceeds being donated to Oakland based non-profit, The Crucible & The California Native Plant Society.
The Botanical Dye capsule is available at Taylor Stitch
