Love your Skin with 100% Natural Clothing

I’ve been asked by enough people now "does this has bamboo in it” and "can this be made without spandex.” I’m finally writing the ultimate shopping guide for finding the most natural Yana Dee clothing. Not only is this best for your skin, is also good for the planet!

If you are already convinced, click here to skip the reading and start shopping "The Most Pure & Natural Yana Dee" collection.

What you put on your skin can change how it looks and feels. Since you probably put more clothes on your skin than any other product, picking out the right clothes to wear is key to keeping skin healthy- or bringing it back when an issue arises.

Silk Makes you Fancy

Silk has long been prized as one of the worlds finest fabric. Nothing mankind has concocted comes close to the strength and softness of silk. Silk is even surprisingly insulating; have you ever noticed how the finest wool coats and pants are always lined with silk? When Yana or I notice affordable clean silk in the waste stream, we usually acquire it. Since silk is all natural, it can be composted; but this precious fabric shouldn’t be cycled through the chain of life until it is dirty and torn.

Salvaged Leather: An Ethical Luxury

Our design philosophy at Yana Dee Ethical Apparel is based on minimizing waste, and maximizing the materials we have to create a beautiful, highly functional item. All of our leather accessories are made from re-purposing usable scrap materials from other makers. We acknowledge that the creation of leather has a lot of energy input, and honor that process by using the scraps we can find, as fully as we can.

Maybe now you can see why we dare to call these "ethical" leather accessories. Whether the piece measures a couple of square feet or a couple of inches, we are proud to feature the character of this prime material.
