Best summer dresses
When it comes to summer outfits it is always good to keep some factors in mind that will make hot summers easier for you.
The first thing that you need to consider for a summer outfit is the fabric. Choose fabrics which have cooling properties such as cotton, linen, hemp, chambray and rayon as they are soft, lightweight, breathable and soak sweat, allowing heat to escape the body. The worst fabrics for the summers are the synthetic ones such as polyester, nylon, satin etc.

Second, factor should be colors and one should prefer light colors as they reflect better which helps to keep you cool and should avoid dark colors.
Surface designs are also an important part for our favorite summer dress. You can always choose from floral prints to minimal hand woven fabrics. Light embroideries can also work and our favorite hand crafted prints and dyes such hand-block prints and hand tie-dyed fabrics from Sanganer, Rajasthan is the go to option.

best eco-friendly clothing packaging
In today’s online shopping world packaging of a product is as important as the product itself. Still when it comes to packaging most of the brands tend to forget about it.
In 2018, the largest consumer of plastic was the packaging industry (rigid and flexible), which together formed around 59% percent of total plastic waste.
In 2016 the EU amounted to 87million tones of packaging waste, most of it plastic i.e 170kg/ person.
So what is the solution?
The solution will be a plastic free packaging such as:
Fabric bags, specially bags that are made of bio-degradable fabrics or waste fabrics. which can be reused.
There is also an amazing option which is a plastic look-alike made from starch of plants (PLA (polylactic acid) is typically made from the sugars in corn starch, cassava or sugarcane. It is biodegradable, carbon-neutral and edible. To transform corn into plastic, corn kernels are immersed in sulfur dioxide and hot water, where its components break down into starch, protein, and fiber). It is biodegradable and has plastic like properties.
Then we have carboard boxes which are also a great option as a packaging but the issue with this is when you ship a product it becomes expensive than bags due to its size and weight.
And the last but not the least, reusing plastic bags and packaging products in used amazon packets or any other plastic packets that we get, yes it won’t be that aesthetically pleasing but will be the beat for environment.
Choose wisely a packaging is a s important for your brand and environment as the sustainable product.
