We've gone Natural this Summer and so should you <3

We've gone Natural this Summer and so should you <3

Starting off the new year comes with new resolutions and dreams! 

At La Sierra, we strive to be the best version of ourselves while being kind to the earth and supporting Indigenous Artisan communities. We’re making the resolution to continue to encourage people to live closer to nature and to prioritise what they wear on their skin while being their authentic selves. That’s why our clothes are made from the natural Alpaca fibre! And with summer well and truly here, there are many benefits that come with wearing organic and genuine articles of clothing! 

 

What are natural fibres, you ask? They are materials made by plants, animals, or mineral source. Wool, cotton, cashmere, silk, linen, and of course, Alpaca hair are just some examples of natural fibres. These natural fibres are not only environmentally friendly, but also durable, bringing a delightful comfort to the skin. Natural fibres are less toxic than synthetic fibres, such as polyester, acrylic, rayon, or nylon. Materials made from natural fibres allow air to flow more easily in and out, making them a better choice for coziness and durability.  All around us, we have the world shifting and growing, with people getting back in touch with their roots, and choosing healthier lifestyles. People are making conscious decisions to eat better and be better, and that includes dressing ethically and sustainably. Wearing natural fibres is one of the most beautiful acts of kindness towards the environment. 

As we progress into warmer weather, having natural, breathable material becomes more desirable and at La Sierra, we are proud to be able to provide you with these options. Not only will you remain much cooler when wearing our natural Alpaca fibres, which have moisture-wicking abilities that essentially help the skin remain dry, it is also hypoallergic to the skin! Perfect from summer days to autumn nights! Our lightweight knit tops will leave your body feeling free and breezy. We have the short-sleeve Maya Long and Maya Cropand the sleeveless Nina, Nina Crop and Inti Summer Pants- all ready and available for you!  

 

 

Supporting La Sierra, you are supporting the natural wonders of earth, Indigenous artisan communities, and the freedom of self-expression! We work closely with Indigenous artisan knitters who produce our stylish textiles and knitwear.  By following fair trade practices, we are able to help them maintain a sustainable lifestyle and support their families, their health and their educational aspirations. There’s no better way to be living your truest self than being kind to others, to your skin, and discovering the beauty of au-natural!

Let us ring in the new year being our best selves! Let's continue to strive for beauty, inciting unity, creating simplistic yet elegant style, while ethically taking care of our world. And there is no better way than taking responsibility and paying attention to the small details that make the biggest impacts! Using natural fibres in our clothes to support being our best selves, respecting our planet and looking stylish while doing so <3
