Who says you have to be a hippie to successfully support an eco-friendly design? If anything, making even the smallest impact of eco-consciousness by purchasing socially responsible and sustainable clothes will not only have you looking fantastic but feeling fantastic, as well. Looking for a first eco-friendly wardrobe find? How about a soft scarf that will not only keep you warm but add a splash of candy-colored inspiration to your everyday wares? Stimulated by the hand skilled craftsmanship of weavers, fabulous natural fibers, and the vibrant colors seen throughout, Michelle Baldwin and Michelle Taylor-Spearman took their inspiration and enchantment of Nepal’s country and culture to launch their eco-accessories brand, Nepali by TDM Designs, in 2007 and created carefully crafted cashmere scarves that are impossibly soft, extremely warm, and amazingly lightweight.
Get your fashion-high off of accessories that help to nurture a community. Nepali by TDM Designs has made casual luxury fashion not only look good but do good. Not only are Nepali by TDM Design accessories made from natural materials such as silk, cashmere, bamboo, modal and wool and eco-friendly azo-free dyes (azo-dyes are found to have potential carcinogens) they are also intricately handmade in Nepal through a movement that helps to fully support poverty stricken Nepalese women.
