Left Edit

When I first saw this brand launch their Kickstarter last fall, I knew it was going to be a great success. The bold prints, versatile designs and style-driven attitude is what a lot of us women want in a conscious wardrobe. Left Edit leaves an impression behind, and it’s something new & refreshing to add to the sustainable fashion movement.

psst.. keep reading to find some contest details for your chance to win some Left Edit!

Reasons to Love Left Edit

Responsibly Made in LA: Thank goodness for more sustainable brands being manufactured state side! Left Edit makes every piece from their collection in LA at responsible factories paying fair wages in safe working conditions. Plus, the design studio and production sewing space is women-led, and they focus on working with conscious brands in the industry.

Fashion-Forward, yet Affordable: Creators, Kestrel & Holly, heard from several of us that there weren’t enough options for stylish sustainable clothing. You tend to find a lot of sac dresses, boxy tops and straight basics… which is all fine, but you don’t want to dress like that everyday! It’s fun to make a statement with the clothes you wear. The pieces are also very versatile and easy to create all different looks with.

Eco-friendly Fabrics: Left Edit uses some of my favorite textiles - Cupro (which you can find more information below), Tencel & Tencel Linen. They also use GOTS-certified dyes for lower impact processing, and even the notions are thoughtfully-picked. Buttons are made from Corozo nuts, zipper taps are made with Repreve (recycled plastic bottles), and interlining is made from recycled poly.

What I’m Wearing

The Vera: This is the first piece of clothing I’ve owned made from the fabric Cupro, and it’s a new favorite!! I love the sheen, and the way it mimics silk. It has a beautiful drape, feels incredibly soft to the touch, and lets your skin breath.

Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fiber derived from cotton linter, which is basically recovered cotton waste. Linter is the very tiny fiber sticking out of cotton seed that is too small to spin. You could consider this type of fiber a by-product of cotton production. Like Tencel, Cupro is produced within a closed-loop system so water and solvents are continuously recycled. Overall, it’s a gorgeous textile!

I love the versatility of the Vera, and know I will be able to style it so many ways in the future - I’m thinking, a turtleneck for the colder months and maybe I can fit a puff sleeve blouse underneath, too? :)
