• The Sweater Savior Project

    partial coverage

    At the top of the new year, many of us make hard decisions about the clothing in our closets. Purging what doesn’t fit, is damaged, or just plain boring is part of our decision making. The sad part is that sometimes a favorite garment appears to be heading toward the rag bag. Often times the piece in question is a moth-eaten cashmere […]

  • What is Reincarnated Cashmere?

    cashmere cardigan sweater deborah lindquist

    It’s sweater time! While you may know I call my eco conscious cashmere sweaters “reincarnated”, you may not know why. There are a few other words to describe them: upcycled, recycled, vintage, green, eco friendly, one of a kind. And all those words apply. But the reincarnated tagline started sometime in 2004, before the popular […]

  • The Fall Wedding


     The Fall Wedding-A Step Away From Traditional The showy display of vibrant fall colors is splendid and inspiring this time of year.

While the thought of considering a metallic wedding gown may bring up visions of bad disco dressing back in the Studio 54 days or blinding pageant dresses, the high fashion/glamorous version of today is a subtle metallic sheen. Even […]

  • The Praying Mantis


    Garden critters seem to know I love them and because of that often pose for a photo or come into the house to visit. Birds, hummingbirds, butterflies, lizards, frogs have all been short term visitors until I relocate them to a more agreeable location in my eco friendly garden. Not that I don’t appreciate the […]

  • For The Love Of Bees

    Bee Bonnet

    This morning on my way to my yoga class, I spotted an extermination truck with the tagline “Kills Everything”. Imagine a world without birds, butterflies, bees, ladybugs, and the beautiful and magical garden creatures that make a garden a sanctuary. But yet this is an idea that is presented as an excellent business slogan… If […]

  • The Eco Garden


    I design and make eco clothing as a profession but create eco gardens for my soul. Growing up on a farm in Minnesota, fields and gardens were a major part of my family’s lives. We fed ourselves, many relatives, and supplied local markets with the food we grew there. My Mom tended lush flower gardens […]

    Photo of Ingrid Haubert by Pattie Traynor When the Empire State Building changed its lights to Green, I felt it may be safer to stay indoors. I launched my business in Manhattan during the 80’s and on St Patrick’s day, people would get a little too crazy with the green beer, or whatever green substance […]
