Still & Moving is proud to introduce great, new activewear made with organic cotton and bamboo fabrics that are both beautiful and affordable. Boutique-E is the only place in the Hawaiian islands where you can find them!
“As we are cultivating consciousness here in our movement classes, we are expanding to include the clothing we wear as well,” says Renee Tillotson, our director.
Why buy organic? Since at least 25% of the world’s most harmful pesticides are used to grow cotton, by cleaning up this one industry we can take a big step toward living in harmony with the planet. It is empowering to remember that the choices we make as buyers dictate what is produced.
Organic bamboo fiber has a natural anti-bacterial and deodorization effect. This occurs totally naturally without chemical treatment, so bamboo fabrics are ideal for those with skin allergies or who are chemically sensitive. Bamboo regenerates naturally without replanting, eliminating the need for re-forestation. Bamboo fiber is 100% bio-degradable through prolonged sunlight exposure. Bamboo fiber naturally blocks 98% of all harmful UVA rays!
Introducing the active wear lines now carried at Still & Moving Center’s Boutique-E:
Green Apple Active was pioneered with the vision to innovate and create new organic products for the active lifestyle arena. They use only natural raw materials, organically grown Bamboo & Certified Organic Cotton in all of their apparel. These crop pants are made from organic bamboo and cotton with 14% lycra for a great fit.
GGO fine organic bamboo clothiers is one of the few yoga lifestyle brands whose yoga collection is actually designed by a yoga professional. Vivica Schwartz – a long time practitioner and instructor of vinyasa flow yoga – design assisted and personally tested GGO’s women’s yoga collection. GGO bamboo grows wild in northern Vietnam and it is harvested responsibly.
Queen of Hearts and OmPure Clothing are independently owned and operated businesses. Their production takes place on Bali, co-creating with a family-owned cottage industry. The companies have been able to keep their family of tailors working full time and make annual contributions to non-profit organizations in Bali.
While they are not an organic line, their designs are innovative, made with fair-trade practices. The soft, light-weight fabric is 90% rayon and 10% lycra and the styles are breezy like the islands, a perfect fit for Hawaii and you.
