I’m sitting here trying to write something poignant, but my mind is kind of numb. I think its the mix of post-Patriots buzz and the impending stack of work I have waiting on my desk tomorrow. Since I know I’ll be in a hurry in the AM, I thought I’d leave you with something now in case I don’t get to it in the morning. I wrote about Linda Loudermilk briefly in my Deeper Understanding Post. I love her stuff and adore her faucet necklace. She’s the fabulous designer who coined the term “Luxury Eco.”
Luxury eco™ redefines sustainability with design that gives back to the earth. Linda Loudermilk clothing outfits the movement, providing the uniform for this new kind of earth warrior – an infusion of hope for an abused but resilient planet.
Food, shelter, clothing, water and energy—all of which our mother earth has provided us are no longer in endless supply. Energy is running out fast; water has become an issue of human rights. Imagine that.
Luxury eco™ is an emergency survival plan, fueled by design.
[Loudermilk's] fabrics are made of sasawashi, bamboo, sea cell, soya and other exotic self-sustaining plants. [Their] belief is that the clothing and accessories we wear, the products we use and the vehicles we drive are a perfect conduit for the spirit of this complex, colorful and rockin’ earth: this is luxury eco™.
Her faucet necklace ($70 on her site and $65 and Uncommon Goods) is made from reclaimed silver and features a single glass “drop.” With each purchase, Loudermilk will make generous donation to support organizations with clean water initiatives. I always love things that look great and that you can feel great about buying.
