These women's fitted zip hoodies are produced by a company dedicated to ecological sustainability and social equity, and are made from 80% organic cotton and 20% recycled polyester. The front has a brass zipper and pockets, and the back features an illustration by our in-house artist, Ash- a montage that combines elements of the forest with the alchemy that inspires FSW perfume.

Why organic cotton is important: It takes one-third of a pound of fertilizers and pesticides to produce the average cotton t-shirt. By working exclusively with organic farmers, we can keep millions of pounds of chemicals out of the environment, which has a positive impact on watersheds, wildlife and humans. Organic farming also has a global warming correlation; chemicals are manufactured and transported using fossil fuels, and organic farmers use less water.
Ecological sustainability is perhaps most directly expressed in agriculture. We all have to be fed, clothed, and sheltered every day. Agricultural products – from our farms and forests – are all around us. By educating ourselves and making conscious choices about what we consume, we can join a worldwide movement towards a safer, cleaner, and healthier world.
