The Tafari proudly announces the re-release of selected pieces from the first Eco Cut&Sew Collection, “The Temperate Rain Forest”. We have had a high demand from our new overseas followers to re-release some of the products from that line.
This re-issue of the line offers our fans a chance to purchase the previously released very exclusive Eco Cut&Sew collection. Back in 2012, we did not expect that our impact on the Green industry would be so quick. Our first collection received very positive reviews within the market, but languished in relative obscurity due to the complexity within the products. First, all of the manufacturing is done in the ‘Fashion District’ located in Midtown-Manhattan, NY. For a New York based Eco company that was a very important aspect. Our Carbon footprint is one of the lowest in the industry. All of the labor and workers we contract are working in a health safe and fair trade environments. All of the textile is sustainably sourced from Reclaimed, Recycled and Organic fabrics. All of our Ideas, inspirations and thoughts are fueled by a plant based nutrition so the utmost divine potential can be put into all of our products. A New Piece of “Green Americana” is coined. Sophisticatedly, this release marks the very first time the world has witnessed what The Tafari can offer to the Human Community.
