The saccharine-sweet tees designed by Bla Bla combine adorable designs with eco-friendly and fair-trade practices that will leave you begging for more. The company was founded in 2001 when Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald traveled to Peru. During their trip, the encountered a village of knitters who were continuing a practice that had been handed down through multiple generations. The friends decided to begin crafting their own hand-knit clothing and started a relationship with the artisans. Using all-natural fibers and low-carbon-emitting production practices, the women hired 200 women in Peru and made a genuine commitment to practicing fair-trade efforts.
Their Spring tees ($24) combine bright colors and a bit of nature, with birds sitting on guitars and hands holding flowers and little girls swimming – a little refreshing option from some of the logo-laden shirts on store shelves.
