Update for you on the garden clothing line started a year ago. Many of you are following and anticipating the grand opening of my apparel line for the gardener. The goal is to have comfortable clothes that go from the garden to running errands and looking presentable in the process.
Today was a huge hurdle in my attemps to sort out the ins and outs of this business. I have hired an artist/graphic designer to put the finishing touches on my logo. She’s emailing me her step by step process for my input and go-ahead approval. It’s so exciting. Absolutely can not wait to show it to you.
Yes!!!!! Found it!!!! Huge hurdle in finding a 100% certified organic fabric supplier for my T-shirts, aprons, and capri pants. It had to be pesticide free and made in the USA. I found a very reputable company and they are ready to go! I’m looking at samples of the denim and woven fabrics. All organic of course.
Speak now if there are any special pockets you want on the capris–like a cell phone pocket and garden tool clip. Anything else. I’m meeting with the designer soon. Speak up–now is your chance to have a piece of clothing that works in the garden and on the go.
I am leaning toward having the logo embroidered on the item instead of screen printed. It cost more but looks and wears better.
The clothes are geared to the season—long sleeve thermals and such for winter. Short sleeves are not capped and not too long for summer—just right. Flowergardengirl.org will also carry gardening cards, birdhouses, and straw hats. The straw hats will match the shirts—which will coordinate with the ribbing on the capris—and well…….stay tuned.
Finally you can say—–gardening clothes that are not too cute……very comfortable—-durable—and ageless. They will not go out of style. Just like a good old galvanized watering can won’t ever go out of style.
Organics use to be dull colors but with today’s new techniques we can have things like cherry red and heavenly blue. Are you a cherry red or a heavenly blue?
Guys, I did not leave you out. Cargo garden shorts/pants and pro casual shirts are on the way. Got any suggestions? Let me know.
So now you know—you know some of the goings on behind Flowergardengirl. You must certainly stay tuned.
