Cheesecloth T-Shirts Take Fashion To New Green Level

Sick of run-of-the-mill organic or eco-friendly clothing, but still need a basic, white T-shirt that’s right for almost any occasion? Then look no further than Alexandra Cassaniti’s new line of T-shirts made from cheesecloth and flax-based osnaburg, a coarse linen fabric that was often used in the U.S. to make slave garments. Cassaniti has put these two unlikely fabrics together for her line of unbleached, chemical-free, and all-natural Tees and tunics that are biodegradable and compost-able. You probably won’t ever want to get rid of the shirt, though, because the more you wear it the more unique it becomes and washing makes it more durable. Plus, each one arrives with a pouch of iron-on patches so you can customize it. Choose between three lengths — x means cropped, xx means standard, and xxx means tunic. Prices range from $110 to $180, but can you really put a price on saving the planet and looking good? [Alexandra Cassaniti via Daily Candy]
