H Fredriksson

H Fredriksson offers the ultimate in chic attire for even the most discriminating orGLAMic shopper.  Based out of Brooklyn New York, and inspired by Swedish design, this eco-friendly company is manufactured locally and out of sustainable materials.  And while the label, established in 2006) isn’t quite new, the Spring/Summer 2010 collection will make you feel as though you have stumbled upon an eco-fashionista’s secret.  I love the hip, muted designs with pops of color to delight the senses.  Available for purchase online, items are also sold across the United States and Japan.

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.

The brainchild of Los Angeles-based jewelry-designer-turned-philanthropist Tina Tangalakis, Della has already made a huge splash in the short time since it’s inception in 2009.  Employing and empowering the women of Hohoe, Ghana, Della offers one-of-a-kind, handmade, vegan bags and accessories made of sustainable materials.  My personal pick is the Summertime in Yellow Classic Della Bag which would add the perfect punch to any day at the beach – and I love that every item has a label signed by the artist who made it.  Click here to purchase the bag pictured above and here to shop the entire orGLAMic collection including messenger bags, wallets, business card holders and more.

Bounce your baby into orGLAMic bliss in a Coco bouncer by Bloom.  Created by four fathers who wanted to bring contemporary design to baby products, Bloom products are definitely an orGLAMic fave.  Made of a single piece of Stylewood (certified sustainable birch) this beautiful bouncer is finished with low-VOC finishes, and is lead- and formaldehyde-free.  It should go without saying that this understated sleek design is perfect for any orGLAMic home, and could seamlessly move from room to room without being an eyesore.  Remember, just because there is a new addition in your household you home needn’t look like a Chuck E. Cheese’s!  Click here to browse the various orGLAMic items.

Artecnica

I love the look of these multi-purpose, orGLAMic cork cases by Artecnica.  The fact that they can be used and reused for so many purposes makes these products even more orGLAMic than the fact that they are crafted from 100% recycled billboards and sustainable cork.  Inspired by the simple design of a traditional envelope, I could see myself using the largest clutch as an daytime clutch with a simple jean outfit or sundress (or to even organize office supplies!)  Ranging from $18-$36 these would make orGLAMic gifts.  Click here to purchase one today.

Manly Mondays is in for a treat with Collection PAS.  C-PAS is the most orGLAMic  menswear line that I have come across.  While the Spring ’10 Collection has already been released, the Fall ’09 Collection does the trick at the moment.  All of the well-designed duds are made of natural, recycled and sustainable materials and are classic yet hip at the same time.  The Fall ’09 Collection includes items are made from organic cotton, organic denim, and even re-used wool blankets.  And, if you are in NY, you can also go in for a custom suit (and bring in old t’s to be a part of the suit lining!)  Click here to browse the orGLAMic website.

Amenity Home

Picture 2Amenity Home is known as one of the most orGLAMic destinations for all green home decor.  Offering everything from delicious duvets to precious place mats, Amenity perfectly combines form and function with an eco-twist.  I personally love the orGLAMic, modern look of the “Trail” and “Birdseye” table runners pictures above (click here to purchase.)  And if you are lucky enough to live in the Los Angeles area, this weekend they are having a sample sale downtown!  Rumor has it that sample organic duvets will be as inexpensive as $50 and Belgian linen pillows will be up to 75% off.  Going on all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday, details are available by clicking here.
