Why Elizabeth Suzann is One of my Favourite Ethical Brands
Elizabeth Suzann is easily one of the best ethical clothing brands out there. All of her pieces are handmade to order by a small team in Nashville. Crafted out of gorgeous natural textiles like raw silk, linen and cotton canvas, these are investment pieces that will last you a lifetime. After lusting over Elizabeth Suzann's pieces for well over a year, I finally took the plunge and got myself a couple pieces.
I started with the Long Sleeve Harper Tunic in eggshell raw silk. This pieces has become one of my most used staples in the months since I got it. It's oversized fit with a ginormous pocket is extremely functional and comfortable for everyday wear. Seriously, that pocket is EVERYTHING. The gorgeous fabric means the top can be dressed up or down, depending on where you're going and what you pair it with. The longer length also makes it perfect to wear pants-less on work-from-home days, and I'm excited to wear it on summer nights as a dress with some shorts underneath. I also find the raw silk super easy to care for; I just hand wash and hang dry, or throw it in the wash on a delicate cold cycle. It doesn't wrinkle or show water marks the way regular silk does, and doesn't feel too precious to wear everyday.
Since her pieces are made to order, there is a bit of a wait to receive them. IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT. A few weeks is nothing compared to how long you will have these treasures in your wardrobe. Yes, the prices are pretty high, but the quality is outstanding and one piece replaces like three or four (especially when they can be worn so many ways). Read this to have a deeper appreciation of the prices and what goes into making a piece like this. No matter where you are on your wardrobe journey, Elizabeth Suzann is definitely a brand to consider investing in.
