eileen-fisher-behind-the-seams-interview-on-earth-day-2014Eileen Fisher, a pioneer in sustainable clothing, helps us celebrate Earth Day with a look at her most eco-conscious collection to date. For spring 2014, 52% of the line is designed as part of The Eco Collection and 70% of the cotton manufactured for the entire offering is organic.

“Becoming more mindful about clothing means looking at every fiber and every seed and every dye and seeing how to make it better. We don’t want sustainability to be our edge—we want it to be universal,” says ­Fisher.

Smart Style: There are so many eco-chic options—from organic linens to hemp to biodegradable Tencel® to bluesign®-certified silks (Chinese silks that are dyed and finished using fewer chemicals, less water and less energy).
