All in all, I am thoroughly satisfied. Fast delivery (less than a week), polite owner who sent me a message after my order was placed letting me know to contact her with any concerns or questions, which I thought was quite professional. Packaging was cute and minimal (very eco-friendly, from production to delivery)! The product is perfect for me. It fits well. I am a medium, and this fits loosely, like I pictured. The detailing in stitch around the sleeves and neckline are doubled, so this shirt won't unravel, but it is not double stitched on the bottom leaving the shirt light and flowy.

What a Simka Sol bride is all about! Trekking out to that special place in the wilderness for a dance, kicking up that desert dust and laughing as it sparkles upon so much love...

About

Simka Sol® is a hand illustrated, hand printed, handmade apparel line operating out of Sara's home studio in Massachusetts.

Sara drifted away from conventional manufacturing to house the designing, printing and sewing all under one roof. Using ecofriendly inks and sun exposed screens she strives to create a more sustainable, truly handmade product.


• So just how are you eco-conscious?
Since learning how to screen print I've modified the process and made it my own by exposing my screens in the daytime sun, which eliminates the need for uv exposure units and electricity. This process which is so dependent on the environment has helped me slow down in a fast paced "now" world, take a deep breath and appreciate what nature gives us as natural tools.

I also print using only eco-friendly water based inks, which contain NO harmful VOC's, PVC or any other harmful toxic substances, making them safe for environment as well as the user. We are looking into solar options for 2015!

Old fabric scraps and misprinted towels are used for cleanup in the shop, cutting down on paper towel waste.

• Tell us about the fabric!
I am excited to announce that I offer USA milled fabrics as well as certified imported organic blends, harvested and manufactured under strict environmental and Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production guidelines. Our organic offerings are fully certified by IMO, Control Union, OCIA, NOP or Ecocer and and dyed with low impact, fiber reactive dyes. Imported organic blends are manufactured in mills where workers operate in a well maintained, healthy and safe environment; they are well trained for their jobs; they are treated with respect; they are paid fairly and are provided with health insurance, sick and maternity leave benefit. No child labor is used.

Majority of our fabrics are milled in the USA and are noted as to which on product pages. We order our fabric in large quantities to reduce our shipping footprint and in order to offer a continual and consistent product. Our t-shirt blanks are USA sweatshop free American Apparel which are made in downtown LA.
All of our handmade garments are sewn 10 feet from where they are hand printed in my studio.

Every item in the shop is handmade in my home studio, from the initial idea, to the finished product. Each item's process is completed by my hands and each product is special and unique.
