Satva Living

Stylish & Organic active lifestyle wear for the socially-conscious

The Sanskrit word, Satva, is a state of mind in which the mind
is steady, calm and peaceful. Satva means pure.

Wow someone with Satva fashion. The two Satva items I’ve reviewed below are absolutely wonderful. These are clothes that are “free from chemicals including: bleaches, toxic waxes, sulfur and heavy metals commonly used in the production of clothing.” This is so refreshing a find. {I’ve given up with most retail apparel shopping because what’s offered is scratchy, chemical smelly, gaudy-dyed stuff}

Satva Organic Warrior Bear Kids Toddler Yoga Tee

Warrior Pose Polar Bear organic cotton toddler t-shirt available in 2, 3, or 4T. Preshrunk and really soft. Sizing is right on. 5% of profits donated to WITS(Wellness in the Schools Program).

Reviewed: Fabric Basket

Triangles? Polar Bears?  A print with both in subtle shades of purple, lilac, and yellow on a natural background. Luisa uses organic cotton and organic cotton canvas for this fabric basket.  A 6″ by 6″ size for storing all kinds of little things. Right now it’s holding some back-to-school supplies. But who knows what else I might use it for.

Purposeful for kids, big people, and polar bear admirers♥

Fabric Basket - Geometric Polar Bears in Purple, Lilac + Yellow on Natural

LOTS of other great prints. And MORE more than baskets. Check out the entire Etsy store inventory http://www.blota.etsy.com (Custom orders available)

Handcrafted and Eco Friendly in Holland
After 5 years working in Marketing, I decided to change gears, quit my job and stay home with my, then, 4 month old daughter. I have never looked back!Seven years, thousands of hours of sewing and two daughters later, I am still as happy to be home, look after my family and create beautiful items, made with gorgeous prints!I let the fabrics inspire me and determine what I make! I love picking out pretty and colorful fabrics and then mixing and matching them to carefully create beautiful, simple products.

Caring for the environment is very important to me and so I try to use as much eco-friendly materials as possible, be it organic or vintage fabrics or sewing notions, recycled/recyclable packaging.

Eco. Pure. Simple. That’s why I love Earth Creations! I’ve featured them on Notes From Dawn several times and I am thrilled to share with you one of their beautiful new spring styles.
The Reef Dress
Reef Dress
A wonderful spring layering piece and adorable stand alone dress for hot weather. This sleeveless dress has a self made 6″ cowl neck and is made from our organic cotton slub fabric that adds a subtle pattern to the fabric. A fabulous stand alone piece, or layered with a belt and leggings.
I just about never wear dresses but this style works for me. I don’t think of it as a dress but like the description states, a “layering piece”. It can be easily dressed up or down. Add a hat and you’re ready for Derby Day!
True to all Earth Creations clothes, the cotton is noticeably soft! Choose from 6 colors. Modeled in Sea. Made in the USA. 100% cotton slub. (What exactly is slub?)

Just remember that when you shop Earth Creations, you get super stylish and earth kind fashions for the entire family. In addition to using sustainable fibers, they also use natural clay dyes that are biodegradable.

Head over to the Earth Creations website to check out their fall fashions. And get the dirt on their story, if you haven’t already. They are reasonably priced especially considering the quality of the products. They offer some terrific web sales, too!
