SUSTAINABLE STYLE: Heather Heron Hemp Clutches and Totes
Posted By Abigail Doan On October 19, 2008 @ 5:00 am In Accessories and Fashion,sustainable style sundays | 5 Comments
It’s a rare thing to find eco accessories that seem as essential as the basic staples in our lives. Sustainability is not about acquiring more goods but about finding a balance and a loop of consumption that closely examines ecology and personal need. This is probably why Heather Heron ’s clutches and totes feel so right. Designed and crafted with organic European hemp, Heron’s eco glam designs  are guilt-free luxurious and beautifully streamlined. With L.A. Fashion Week  coming to a close, it is a real discovery to come across a California designer who defies passing trends with both an earthy and shimmery take on true sustainable style .
Luxury hemp might still be a mystery to some, but consider that Heather Heron  uses only the finest organic European hemp in her perfectly–sized clutches and totes . Small enough to take with you everywhere for just about any occasion, and roomy enough to stash your essentials, Heather keeps the modern woman in mind with her stylish versatile creations.
Wholesome materials abound in all Heather Heron  organic hemp accessories embellished with naturally dyed hemp-silk charmeuse lining and leather banding accents. Heron is a self-taught designer who smartly designs a few keys pieces each season that speak to a well-curated wardrobe. Her L.A. produced clutches and totes are being eagerly snatched up by eco-savvy starlets as well as stores and retailers that are looking to promote only the best of eco fashion and socially responsible production. We originally fell in love with Heather’s designs when we caught a glimpse at the Project Earth Day  designer accessories showcase here in NYC this past spring, and we are excited to see that the momentum has been building ever since for this talented and eco-conscious designer. Look for Heather Heron ’s designs in the hands and on the shoulders of women who really value the spirit of green fashion and all that it carries.
