The Big Blue Bike scours the globe looking for environmentally friendly materials. Then they select upcoming designers to provide their designs. After that, The Big Blue Bike gets their manufacturing done using providers that meet their high ethical manufacturing standards, sometimes they’re Fair Trade certified, but they also like to work with non-certified manufacturers who have a keen eye on ethical practices. They especially love to provide work opportunities to disadvantaged communities. The long-term partnerships they develop are all with the goal to improve societies and the environment.

This Narodenia Open Cardigan is perfect to throw on after yoga or over any outfit. Made from natural colors using the ultra luxurious baby alpaca fiber. This fiber is strategically sourced to rejuvenate the dwindling alpaca population in the Andes. There is only demand for white alpaca fiber (for easier application of dyes/coloring) leading to a worrying decline in the colored alpaca population. By specifically requesting colored alpaca fiber, The Big Blue Bike are creating demand for the beautifully colored animals and encouraging Andean herders to breed more of them. $229. USD.
