Indigenous Design Winner with Artisan Network

Indigenous Designs minimizes the impact to our environment through the development and use of the finest natural fiber blends, yarns and dyes to produce children’s, women’s and men’s clothing. Expect alpaca, organic cotton, silk, Tencel®, and wool materials. Also find accessories, — like totes and caps.

California founders Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds began their commitments to sustainability and socially responsible actions during 1993. Hence, the company has been a pioneer in the fair trade and organic apparel market for more than a decade.

Herein is focused on women’s apparel. That’s because one of the two tied-second runner-ups in Chic Eco’s 2008 poll for the Most Creative Women’s Apparel Designer became Britta Reynolds of Indigenous Designs. She’s honored and designed for the traditional knitting culture of artisans from around the world. Yeah Britta!

The site conveniently serves to shop online, find a store, or stock a store. There’s a handy women’s size chart and an impressive story behind each material obtained for every collection made.

Britta’s creations are handmade with a contemporary style. Nominators and devotees describe her collection as upbeat, spiritually youthful, and fun. Britta wouldn’t have any trouble starting a fan club. Check her designs out and add your comments below!

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, 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.
