Make this upcoming Father’s Day orGLAMic with one of our eco-friendly suggestions for the perfect gift.  All week long we’ll be featuring items for every kind of dad in your life, starting off with this uber-chic yet rugged Surf Bag by Heather Heron.  We have loved Heather Heron for years here at orGLAMic (see our 8/26/08 post) and this bag makes us wish our dad was a surfer just so we could buy it!  Available in either recycled japanese denim or made of reclaimed, vintage, canvas military tents (shown above) details include hemp rope and recycled leather.  Simply click here to purchase this orGLAMic Father’s Day gift.

Add an orGLAMic sparkle to any look with a piece of eco-friendly jewelry from Alkemie.  Made out of 100% reclaimed materials by a husband-and-wife design team, the company offers chic rings, necklaces, earrings, cuffs, bracelets, accessories and even items for orGLAMic men.  I am a huge fan of the Large Stingray Textured Cuff with Cutout, shown above, which is available in a silver or gold patina.  While equally stunning with evening ware, I think I would rock this statement piece poolside with a simple bikini and shades.  Click here to browse the entire orGLAMic collection, and here to find an online or local retailer near you.

My favorite display of going green is when it is melded beautifully with modern furniture.  One of the tops in his game, designer Cliff Spencer, does this orGLAMic dance beautifully. He uses reclaimed wood and sustainable materials, and all of the products are finished using low-VOC and water-based finishes.  I love the table and bench pictured above, which is made from wine-stained oak reclaimed from an old Napa winery.  The Marina del Rey-based designer offers commissioned and custom made furniture, in both modern and traditional styles.  Click here to check out the orGLAMic site and let your imagination run wild.

Picture 2Always on the hunt for beautiful, modern eco-friendly furniture (for my future dream home) I came across, and subsequently fell in love with, MAMAGREEN.  Run by two Belgian designers, MAMAGREEN offers a wide array of orGLAMic outdoor furniture for even the most discriminating tastes.  Featuring FSC-certified reclaimed teak and environmentally friendly synthetics, this line offers contemporary and luxurious sustainable furniture.  Personally, I’m a fan of the Sparta Line, but with 11 greatly varied collections there is something for everyone.  Click here to take a look at this orGLAMic outdoor furniture line now.

While these wacky colorful bags aren’t something I would usually post here on orGLAMic (in case you haven’t noticed I prefer clean, sleek lines and generally boring colors ;), I am obsessed with the website behind these messenger-type bags and had to share!  Freitag bags are made of reclaimed, heavy-duty vintage truck tarps.  They come in all sorts of bold colors and patterns and the best part is that you can design your own on the company’s website.  Unleash your inner Picasso and create and original, one-of-a-kind, orGLAMic bag here.

Red Flag Desgin is a Vancouver-based company with tons of great gift ideas for dad.  While all of their products are made from locally sourced materials, the AUM line (Alternate Use Material) uses discarded materials from our uber-consumer and disposable society.  Their first AUM line is made from reclaimed sailcloth.  I like the shopper, pictured above, for dads because it’s a nice change from all the frilly ones that have come out with the recent canvas bag movement, but there are also great items like duffel bags and toiletry kits that your father will love.  Check out the entire orGLAMicproduct line by clicking here.
