While other major brands have seemed to jump on the green bandwagon with underlying marketing goals, EILEEN FISHER has been quietly expanding their organic line over the last couple of years. Along with increased sustainable fibers, including a new natural cashmere collection(!!), the company is also well-known for its social responsibility and wellness initiatives. The elegant basic styles, which can be mixed together season upon season, are also a subtle statement on necessity and consumerism.

    Sorry folks, cashmere is NOT in the least bit “sustainable” nor “environmentally correct.” The 1500% increase in the consumption of cashmere by the US over the past decade has directly contributed to the rapid desertification of Central Asia dur to overgrazing by Kashmir goats. Don’t take my word for it :

    We Americans need to get over ourselves and out “needs” for closets full of self-indulgent clothing. While I applaud Eileen Fisher for usually producing simple, versaitle and enduring clothing and for their efforts to use sustainable and responsible materials, they’ve stumbled with this one.
