Hello beautiful friends! We are Natalie and Ceri from Eat Sleep Organic. We run a conscious lifestyle website where we share our love for organic, vegan and sustainable living. Our mission is to share our journey and inspire others to be more mindful about their every day choices from nutrition and beauty to their wardrobe and travel. We are honoured to be guest blogging for our friends at Filbert. We are so inspired by companies like Filbert who are pushing the boundaries of vegan cruelty-free fashion to create luxury items. There is no need to be shopping for leather and other animal derived fabric these days when there are so many amazing companies out there using cruelty free innovative materials!
Today we would love to share our favourite female run companies and how easy it is to source clothing and accessories that are both sustainable and vegan. Our recent trip to our local independent indie film house Cinema and Co in our home city Swansea, South Wales was too good not to be shared. Run by another beautiful business woman Anna and home to local art, cinema and music. The space is so cute and we couldn't resist visiting to watch their showing of "Elf", one of our favourite festive comedies! With vegan lattes in hand (and peppermint flavoured dandies that we just happened to be carrying in our new bags).
It was the perfect opportunity to show off our new Filbert bags and Neckerchiefs, and of course pair them with a wardrobe from female-run sustainable companies P.i.C Style and People Tree.
Ceri is wearing her favourite De Beau cami by P.i.C made from 100% organic bamboo silk. P.i.C stands for "Partners in Crime" and is run by our friend Rhoda out of her love for organic and sustainable design. Based in London using locally sourced fabric Pi.C style have an incredible capsule collection, with clean versatile tailoring perfect to wear on a night out or dress down to go to the cinema. Pairing her cami with thrifted vintage jeans, thrifted vegan heels and red tartan Neckerchief from Filbert, this outfit feels sexy and comfortable. The Belden wristlet in Eggplant canvas with rose velvet ribbon is the icing on the cake.
Natalie's organic cotton dress is by People Tree. Founded by Safia Miney with a desire to protect the environment and support producers in the developing world, People Tree have been pioneers in fair trade fashion for the past 26 years. The dress is perfect for pairing with any of Filbert's neckerchiefs so it was pretty hard to choose one! The Midnight check neckerchief looked chic with Melissa booties, made from recycled plastic.
We have to say Filbert's new vegan suede Stanyan bag is so soft and luxurious you wouldn't believe that it's not real suede! Pre order one of those babies now (it's so close to Christmas you deserve to treat yourself for the New Year).
If some of these UK based brands we've shared are new to you, we highly recommend checking them out and of course investing in a stunning, staple Filbert bag is a must too! If you'd like to hear and read more about what we get up to at Eat Sleep Organic or would like to get in touch then you can find us over on Instagram and through our website! We'd love to hear from you and grow this special vegan, fashionable community!
