GreenLinebyK, a grass-roots clothing boutique based out of Mashpee, MA, is rolling out their new spring line on Monday, January 28. In addition to the handmade, eco-friendly clothing, they are launching PARTICiPATE, a charity-based campaign which will raise funds for Habitat for Humanity/Cape Cod through all-organic t-shirt sales.
Sophisticated and playful, the women’s spring collection appeals to all different types of fashion tastes. From urban to bohemian, designs are polished yet comfortable and are crafted primarily from cotton and linen.
“The inspiration for this collection was earth and the female form”, says owner and designer Kathryn Hilderbrand, “I’m not locked into any particular style or trend. I tend to lead more toward colors of nature. My designs are made with comfort and practicality in mind and tend to be more timeless than trendy. Bohemian to urban – I’ve covered it all. Linen and cotton are the focus.”
Additionally, beginning now through April 24, 2013, $3 from each PARTICPATE tee sold will go directly to help support Cape Cod’s local Habitat for Humanity and are designed to bring awareness to Habitat for Humanity International’s BUiLD campaign. Tees retail at $27 and are made from 100% organic cotton.
The online boutique will also carry fair trade accessories from a handful of artists which will benefit the Starfish Organization, an organization for women in China rescued from slave trade. Founded in 2006, the organization shelters marginalized women and provides them with counseling, medical funding and vocational classes and training in wholesale and jewelry production to set them up for long-term success.
