PrAna is a business that believes in doing social good and implementing their beliefs in the day to day of running a business. I love that PrAna is focused on sustainable clothing efforts and is open about educating potential consumers and loyal customers about being conscious with their buying habits. In their sustainable clothing movement you will see that they make an effort to minimize the impact on our world in a bad way. PrAna Partners with companies and factories and uses materials that adhere to strict safety guidelines and while being efficient. The result is beautiful functional products that they love and can feel good about.
In a Nut Shell: They seek out materials from sustainable sources, their people are treated fairly and they use their processes to improve their industry. The materials they use are organic cotton, recycled wool, hemp, recycled polyester and re-purposed down. Partnerships & Processes are with bluesign, fair trade, fair labor association, responsible forest initiative, poly bag reduction and traceability. You can join the movement and sign up to receive PrAna emails and newsletters. Youâ€™ll be in the know about new styles, sales and promotions.

This is perfect sweater season and I browsed the catalog with pre-selected items and fell in love with the Stacia sweater in Grapevine. Itâ€™s relaxed fit organic cotton mÃ©lange sweater knit. Dolman sleeves with novelty stitch at the front. Fair Trade Certified and 100% Organic Cotton. It would work well with a tank top layered look or worn by itself. I wore it by itself and paired it with my favorite pair of skinny jeans. It fit perfectly and I was super comfortable. I really liked the way it felt and it looked just right. Itâ€™s also something I feel I can dress up or dress down for an upscale or casual event.
My second choice was the Mariette Dress in Heather Grey. I love a stylish sweater dress. The Mariette Dress features a sustainable sweater knit for softness and a hood for bold style. It has long sleeves and a v-neck detail. There is engineered rib knit at the sleeve hem. Its standard fit in a variety of sizes from xs-xl. Itâ€™s 70% organic cotton and 30% acrylic. I wore the Mariette Dress with booties and it would also look good with knee high boots. You can do a layered look or wear it alone like I did. Itâ€™s a good dress to wear to work and then you can go straight to an after-hours event with no reason to change.
There is something for everyone at PrAna which include styles in a variety of categories for Men & Women. There are also a variety of accessories to choose from. Check out the activity collection if you like active wear, practice yoga, travel or go climbing. I know that I travel somewhat frequently and I am ALWAYS looking to travel comfortably.
