Natural Clothing Company, owned by "Earth Day in Snohomish" organizer Alina Bartell, announces the Grand Opening on Friday, July 6 through Sunday, July 8, 2012 of the new shop location at 1020 First Street in Snohomish. Highlights of the Grand Opening include an exciting introduction of brand new, Paris-designed, organic fair trade clothing. These are fashions you will find nowhere else in the Puget Sound area! Event attendees get a chance to win a $100 gift certificate.

Natural Clothing Company specializes in organic fashion made of hemp, organic cotton, and linen, as well as newer fibers - bamboo and soy. After four years of online presence and a previous smaller location, the shop's owners are thrilled to be opening the doors this month at Riverside Plaza, joining two other earth-friendly favorites right next door: Grilla Bites Cafe, specializing in fresh and local organic and natural food, and Little Shop of Light with its beautiful collection of stones, natural jewelry and healing gifts.

Even though Snohomish, WA is famous for being the "antique capital of the Northwest," it is a center of rich agricultural traditions and getaways to mountains and lakes. "Snohomish has a very special place in my heart. The beauty of Snohomish River, the spirit of its history, the bounty of the farms create a community that is down to earth and very receptive to organic clothing. Many people are aware that conventional fabrics are heavily sprayed with chemicals, harsh on peoples' skin. There is a lot of interest in better alternatives, safer for people and the planet as well, while designs are timeless," says Alina. "That's why we call it Nature Approved. Clothes made from plants are truly renewable, unlike oil-based polyester or nylon."

"Natural clothing fits also perfectly with the spirit of tradition and history. After all, hemp and linen are one of the oldest sources for clothing on Earth. Interestingly, after all the centuries, these are still the most promising fibers of the future because they are eco-friendly and biodegradable. They last a long time and once they wear out - you can throw them into compost. That is sustainability." Find more information at:
