Spring needs to haul ass, pronto. Besides the fact that we’re ready to unfriend and unfollow Old Man Winter for being ornery, we’re also drooling over warmer-weather togs from the likes of Hessnatur by Eviana Hartman. We hit up our friends at Hessnatur to put some of their merch up for grabs, which means that one very lucky reader will get his or her pick of any two pieces—free! Would you snag the nubby linen-and-silk cardi and sand-washed-silk jumpsuit, the relaxed-fit pleated short and cabled fisherman’s sweater, or something else entirely? Let us know what you would choose in the comments below, and they could be yours!

All Hessnatur clothing is pure, natural, and made with respect for planet and the people who produce and wear it. From cotton to linen to silk, wool, cashmere, alpaca and mohair, all Hessnatur garments are made from 100 percent natural fibers with no toxins from dyes, bleaches, or other chemicals used in the production process.

Hessnatur actively participates in the Clean Clothes Campaign, a coalition of trade unions, consumer organizations, human-rights groups, and women’s organizations that aims to improve working conditions in the global garment industry. Hessnatur is certified by the Fair Wear Foundation, which means it adheres to the highest social standards regarding working conditions and wages. (Farmers receive an organic fair-trade premium of up to 40 percent for their entire harvest.)

In addition to being sustainably made, the easy to wear, Hessnatur’s classic designs mean that you can make them staples in your closet for years to come—definitely what we’d call sustainable.


Eviana Hartman founded Bodkin in 2008 with the goal to merge her specific aesthetic—honed during a career as staff fashion writer at Vogue and Teen Vogue and as fashion features editor at NYLON—with a long-term interest in sustainability, developed through writing a column about ecological topics for The Washington Post, studying under pioneering “green architect” William McDonough, and having an architect for a father.
