Are you sick of trying to go green, buy organic, and be eco-friendly only to find it’s damn expensive to do so? When your best intentions & your wallet collide, take heart, and get SPUN.
Created by Sara Seumae in the early days of 2007, SPUN brings quality, style, eco-friendliness and affordability together in a beautifully packaged collection of organic clothing. SPUN officially launched in February ’08 in Seattle, WA with a debut collection of classic basics; pieces that every woman needs in her closet. Designed to be the building block for future collections, the line is Sara’s spin on organic lifestyle and natural fashion. The desire to make organic clothing accessible to every woman in the world is Sara’s vision.
