Does the name Naia Rico sound familiar? If you follow green designers, this International stylist is one to watch!

Naia honors both genders well, and she does so once again with the new KOLAM COLLECTION, a line of organic underwear for women and men.

KOLAM was a young Parisian brand founded 2006. The company founder, Aurélien Dahan, focused on quality fabrics and details while appeasing his fashion passion with intentions to make the world a better place.

KOLAM became KOLAM COLLECTION when designer Naia and Aurélien met in 2010. My Organic Tshirt was born with basics to appeal to the urban fashion scene. Naia became co-owner as well.

Organic Underwear and T-Shirts

Let’s face it, underwear is our second skin no matter how you wear it. This collection has you covered with two lines of organic cotton staples: t-shirts in nine colors and underwear in seven colors. The shades are basics or brightly express joy and dynamic energy as pictured here.

They’re simple to shop for in S,M,L sizes and what’s really fun is how each garment comes packaged in a recycled metal can. The cans are manufactured in India, as is the organic cotton.

The mill and fabric are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. Garment production is also in India with FLO (Fair Trade Labeling Organization) status. Workshops are managed on a daily basis with respect to human rights.

About the Author

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on www.ChicEco.com, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design." Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers. From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases! My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs. I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here. Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style. In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
