Shop Spotlight: Mystic Botanical
Looking for eco-friendly clothing and accessories? Eco-friendly beachwear retailer, Mystic Botanical is going to be your new fave go-to! Here are my 5 top picks:
Mystic Botanical is the first and only store to carry the entire line of A A K S Raffia Handbags. These handbags are hand crafted in Africa. Founded by Akosua Afriyie-Kumi, these bags keep alive the weaving tradition of Ghanaian women AND create sustainable jobs in Africa. My favorite from the line is Manni Canary, a vibrant multi-color stripe bag. It’s got a cool summer vibe that makes it perfect for toting to the beach or around town.
The sun’s out. Don’t forget your hat. Mystic Botanical has a collection of hats to top off your summer look and keep the sun off your face. My top pick is this heather paper braided tweed straw sun hat. It features a grosgrain band and a split 4 inch brim with a bow. It’s the perfect summer hat to wear on those casual strolls along the beach or down the boardwalk.
Mystic Botanical carries Koru, a line of eco friendly beachwear. Living in a beach town where the sun shines most of the year, cover-ups are a must for me. These beach pants have caught my eyes. Made of organic cotton and hemp linen, these airy pants are both sustainable and durable. They feature a roll down waist and side slits. Reach for these when you’ve had enough sun and feel like strolling the beach or the street.
If yoga is your thing, Mystic Botanical also carries eco friendly yoga wear. Perfect your pose in these cropped leggings. Made of organic cotton and a touch of spandex, these leggings are the ultimate in work-out comfort. I can totally see these worn beyond the yoga studio as a versatile everyday basic that you could easily pair with a tunic, tank, or boyfriend tee.
Every great wardrobe is built on a foundation of basics. Make this organic blend tee a part of yours. A popular basic tee at Mystic Botanical, these are available in a variety of colors. Environmentally friendly and super soft, they’re made in the USA of organic cotton and RPET (made from plastic bottles) You can’t go wrong in basic black or white with this tee.
