Think beautiful clothing only comes from the finest silks, wools, and furs? Amazingly soft, silky fabric can also come from recycled water bottles! Pattern Village has created a collection of dressing gowns made from 100 percent recycled polyester, and one gown diverts approximately 20 plastic water bottles from the waste stream. For every gown sold, the company plants a tree with One Tree Planted. In addition to the company’s eco-conscious gowns, the packaging is sustainable and compostable. Bonus: The gowns have UPF 50 sun protection. And did we mention the awesome hidden pockets? You’ll enjoy this frock for many years to come, unlike the disposable, fast fashion you buy at major retailers.
