Today’s sunny post focuses on one of our favorite fashion designers and inspiring projects, Native Sol. Founded by May Salem, Native Sol is a family-run lifestyle company offering unique, earth-friendly and fashionable clothing, jewelry, and accessories. In their own words, Native Sol “specializes in using Natural Plant Fibers, renewable resources, sustainable, recycled and reclaimed materials, and other Eco-Friendly methods of production.” This women’s top (pictured below) was created from a men’s bamboo cotton XL t-shirt.
Native Sol also extends their products to include raw vegan food, offering cooking classes and the best raw vegan pizza we’ve ever had. You can purchase and experience their lovingly crafted products online and at various vendor spaces throughout LA. Many community-supported events including LA’s Beat Swap Meet, the Patchwork Festival, fashion shows and select art and music showcases play host to Native Sol’s inspiring creations monthly.
