While clothing lines featured on orGLAMic are sparse (we are too darn picky!) Bodkin satisfies our eco-friendly design needs season after season.  I am utterly obsessed with shorts and rompers this summer, hence the photo above, but the Spring/Summer 2010 collection is also filled with light, ephemeral dresses and tops of impeccable design.  All of Bodkin’s offerings are made of sustainability-oriented fabrics including post-consumer recycled polyester, hand-loomed weaves from collectives in India, regenerated and recycled wool, fine organic cottons, and decades-old salvaged textiles.  Click here to browse the collections (Autumn/Winter 2010 features some amazingly tailored pants!) and here to find a retailer near you.

As regular orGLAMic readers know, I am a handbag/purse/tote/clutch/and every-variation-in-between aficionado.  New York-based Fleabags offers one of the few orGLAMic options that I love with such passion.  Made of rich brown vegetable-tanned leather and certified organic cotton/hemp canvas (and lined with chic navy and white striped cotton fabric!) The Original Flea in Saddle shown above is my absolute favorite.  Although I am dreaming about how good this would look with my signature gold sandals all summer long, this bag is clearly a year-round staple for any orGLAMic wardrobe.  Click here to shop all eight styles right now.

Bundle up in style this holiday season with this orGLAMic sweater from Stewart+Brown.  Always a staple for organic basics, I was delighted to stumble upon the tres fashionable Ladder Stitch Cardigan.  This 100% cashmere cardigan is made with fibers hand-combed from the downy undercoat of cashmere goats residing on the remote, rugged steppe of Outer Mongolia.  The company harvests, spins and knits their cashmere designs in Mongolia in an effort to avoid environmentally damaging desertification due to overgrazing, and to help sustain the centuries-old Mongolian herders’ nomadic way of life.  Featured in the November issue of Vogue, I apparently am not the only one loving this orGLAMic piece – click here to see Michelle Williams modeling the cardigan!  Or click here to purchase your very own.
