My daughter: the eco boutique owner.

Today the doors of a new eco boutique opened on Capitol Hill, Seattle.

9431779Drizzle & Shine is an eco boutique that grew out of a style blog. While blogging about fashion, boutique owner Jean White learned about major ethical concerns in the fashion industry. The more she looked for ethical options, the more she wished there was one place in Seattle to find clothes by companies whose values she shares.

She found eco clothing, but they were often made with wool, silk, and leather. She found clothing free of animal products, but didn’t often know how the items were made. At Drizzle & Shine, we’ve curated collections that are kind to animals, earth, and people.

Everything in the store is free of animal products. And everything is a combination of fair trade, organic, local, USA-made, and/or recycled. We choose brands who think big, have small footprints, and give back … more

Jean White has been vegan for years. Her new Capitol Hill eco boutique has been vegan for all of one day.

Drizzle + Shine opened Wednesday in a commercial space along 15th Ave E on the Group Health Capitol Hill campus.

“I’ve been vegan for 16 years,” White tells CHS. “I extended that to my clothing.”

The new store sells clothing and accessories from undies to sunglasses to shoes — for men and women …

“The environmental aspect is the central goal,” White says. read more

    Thanks so much for writing about me and the store I’ve opened! I’m thrilled with the coverage so far. People are happy to discover clothing and shoes that are kind to animals, the earth, and their fellow humans. It should be the norm, not a specialty. I hope this movement grows!

      You’re welcome Jean, happy to promote what you are doing and thankful that your new store is doing so well. One of my dance students went to Seattle with her granddaughter last week, but I did not know she was going. Her granddaughter is vegan and they went to some shops, my friend thinks they may have been at your store and she’s going to check with her granddaughter and show her your Drizzle and Shine website.

      Now when will you start a chain, so we can have one in Kitchener? Every city needs an eco boutique for women and men!

      Happy that your dream has come true!

      Thank you so much Jess! Jean appreciates the encouragement she’s been receiving and really wants to show how fashion doesn’t have to be at the expense of the garment workers and animals. We can all make a difference!

    I am really happy for Jean, Carmen. I do hope her business takes off and does well in these difficult times. An original idea which should work as a lot of women are becoming more eco-friendly. Many years ago I lived with a woman who ran her own ladieswear shop. Lots of stories, but too much for a comment. Big smile. Ralph 😀 ❤

      Thank you Ralph! I believe the time is ripe for eco shops as more and more people care about animal cruelty, our environment and fair trade issues. I’m glad Jean is interested in more than just looking good and wearing pretty clothes.
