Shop Earth Creations for organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo fashions for the entire family. Super stylish. Earth kind. In addition to using sustainable fibers, they also dye the clothes with natural clay avoiding the use of chemicals from synthetic  dyes. Their story:

earth creations evolved from an ordinary bike ride. One day after a storm, Joy took her mountain bike out for some off-roading and ended up covered with Alabama red dirt. Despite many tumbles through the washing machine, the shirt, socks, and shoes remained stubbornly stained by that mud! When Joy and Martin met years later, Martin was intrigued by the strength of that red clay. Where most people saw ruined clothes, Martin saw potential. Armed with his background in chemistry, concern for the environment, and a natural curiosity, Martin began experimenting with the clay as a dye for T-shirts.

That was almost 17 years ago. Our garments are still colored with natural clay dyes using the process Martin originally developed. From the first “Alabama Dirt Shirt” tinted with that infamous red clay, earth creations has grown into a full line of organic T-shirts dyed in a rainbow of colors for men, women, and children. We also have a complete casual wear line for women made from sustainable fibers.
This season I’m wearing the stylish Kimmy Poncho. Perfect as a cover-up, it can also be worn just as a top. I wear my Kimmy Poncho as a layering piece since I like to be snugly warm during the chilly months. It’s flowing design isn’t bulky or heavy; the mock turtle neck is also relaxed. This is a made in the USA item that is completely machine washable. It’s made from an incredible soft blend of hemp and organic cotton jersey with clay-dyed shades of earth. Available in black, celery, grape, mosaic blue, mud, pumpkin, and slate. This poncho comes in size S/M or L/XL, so determining size is easy. The Kimmy Poncho is a versatile piece that looks great either dressed up or styled down. What a great gift idea!
