“Simple, beautiful clothing made in America.” All women’s sizes (choose HDH Plus from the Shop menu for plus sizes). Descriptions do not tell fabrics, but here’s why: “We source most of our fabrics from a local, family-owned fabric store that specializes in run-off and second-hand fabrics in order to cut down on waste while also supporting our local economy. As a result, we cannot always know the exact fiber content of the fabrics we buy. We strive to provide our customers with quality fabrics that are sourced in a responsible and environmentally-friendly manner. I can tell you however that any of our pieces listed on our website as being made of Cotton Slub, Cotton Gauze, Cotton Denim, or Hemp Silk and Organic Cotton are 100% natural fibers.” If you’re curious about any one particular piece, feel free to contact them and ask about fiber content.

“The happiest and most environmentally certified bike lubes in the world…Every year bike owners apply nearly 6.3 million gallons of harmful petroleum to their bicycles to lubricate their chain and gears. This petroleum has nowhere to go, so it winds up in our soil and waterways, polluting our environment and making a green activity not so green anymore. Eco Sheep® solves this problem through our revolutionary, patent-pendingpetroleum-free bicycle chain lubricants. Our lubes beat petroleum and are non-toxic, biodegradable, and sustainable. You won’t find dangerous petroleum, PTFE particles, or paraffin in any of our products.”
