A-Line Tank by Sosume
This flattering top is part of eco-fashion brand Sosume’s recently released range of affordable organic cotton staples. It features a U-neck tank and a hemline that falls lower at the sides and has a generous A-line cut. It’s a great versatile layering piece that’s perfect to bring on your travels. Made in Australia from certified fair trade organic cotton from India.
Approx. $56, Sosume

Long Sleeve Crop Top by Sosume
Another great layering piece by Sosume, this cropped top features a round scoop neck with a left pocket detail. The long sleeves have thumb holes and it works great with the orange tank above. Made in Australia from a high tech anti pilling jersey of 85% modal, 15% silk.
Approx. $101.50, Sosume

Moving Pictures Pant by Ginger & Smart
Just beacuse pants need to be comfortable doesn’t mean they have to be boring. These low-slung silk pants have front tucks and feature a great moving pictures print inspired by negatives of robots, kittens and wild travels. Ginger & Smart combine good design with high-end, high-quality materials and responsible manufacturers and were recently accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia.
Approx. $409, Ginger & Smart

Kikoi Scarf from East Africa by OneColour
This bright orange scarf is a great travel companion. It’s great as a scarf, of course, but is also large enough to be used as a sarong, picnic blanket or even tablecloth. Made from 100% East African grown cotton, it’s machine woven and hand-fringed by women at Viva Africa.
Approx. $30, OneColour

Kalsø Earth Shoe Enlighten
These sandals by Kalsø Earth Shoe have a “negative heel” design which sets heels slightly lower than toes, mimicks walking barefoot in sand by naturally positioning body over frame. This helps improve your posture and reduce stress on the joints. Made from tumbled leather, with hidden elastic stretch material for fit, cushioned BioFoam footbed and a cute jute-wrapped midsole.
$129, Planet Shoes
