Organic pregnancy style with Boob!

So, even though my first trimester was pretty immobile and horrendous, I knew that as soon as I felt better I wanted to be able to work out and get into shape again. Fitness was at the top of my agenda for the new year before I even found out. Having spent 3 months in bed more or less feeling all the stages from sickness to hot flushes to fatigue resuming some form of exercise became near essential to me. On the hunt for sustainable but comfortable work-out gear and generally laid-back maternity every day wear I came across Boob! The brand caters beyond fitness with ready to wear, day to night pieces which feel so incredible, smooth, silky and beyond comfortable. I literally forgot I was even wearing their trousers, that’s how much of a second skin they became. On more than one occasion I have had to pull myself off the bed just to remove them and change into nightwear after a tiring day. I can’t say enough about the quality of these pieces and the level of fit and comfort.

What should you expect? Organic cotton maternity clothes which are fairtrade, sustainable and eco-friendly – ranging from everyday clothes across to office and even including swimwear, ‘Boob’ has it all for minimal, easy maternity style. Think design-led comfort and unquestionable style. Read more…

Ace & Jig

Founded in 2009 by Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, Brooklyn-based label Ace & Jig specialises in effortless clothing made from custom woven fabrications, made on ancient wooden hand looms by artisan weavers in India. With a focus on craftsmanship and fabrications, the result is effortless basics with a hand-spun twist. 

Within the business much can be learned by aspiring eco brands about how to create sustainable fashion authentically. For example, scrap fabric from Ace & Jig collection is frequently used to make pieces ranging from fabric flags to patched quilts, whilst some scraps are used in collaboration with other artists for further interpretation and others donated to schools for educational projects. Given the fact that we throw out nearly 14 million tons of textiles each year, every little bit helps. Read more…
