Continuing with the theme of low-impact natural dyes, a.d.o. clothing ('anjelika dreams organic') made their NOLCHA debut as part of the Bel Esprit showcase for ethical fashion this week. a.d.o.'s Spring 2011 certified-organic cotton separates are tinted with organic herb dyes and laced with organic trims from Japan. (The word "organic" was just used three times in one sentence. That's impressive.)
Launched in Fall 2008, a.d.o. clothing does things right by using only certified organic cotton, natural herbs and plants from India, hand tags made from recycled paper, as well as manufacturing all of its clothing in New York City's garment district. The dyes used are special Ayurvedic herbs that are touted to promote health and well-being depending upon the unique blends selected.
