Stolen Chic

Don't let the cold nip your neck. Instead, snuggle up with these tame, faux-fur stoles.

This chic alternative to fur is sure to make a statement for animal-friendly style. Available in sustainable "skunk" or "mink" patterns. Made in the USA. Sold individually.

Green 3

Green 3

Founded in 2006, Green3 is the brainchild of Sandy Martin, a Michigan farm girl turned apparel industry maven. Growing up on a farm, Sandy witnessed first-hand the health repercussions of conventional farming and pesticides. Later when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness and high-quality American-made products.

Going Green
Green 3 uses organic or recycled cotton in its products. The cotton is spun and knit into fabric, as well as screened and dyed with water-based inks in North Carolina. This process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks or chlorinated bleaches.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
From irregular T-shirts to the unusable ends of fabric bolts, Green 3 reengineers waste fabric from its own factories into creative items such as the Scraptee herbal pouch, the T-shirt scarf and UncommonGoods' new jewelry pouches. They also use secondhand materials from thrift stores and left over fabrics from garment manufacturers.

Made in America
Headquartered in a former horse carriage terminal from the 1800s, Green 3 is situated on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. Green 3 also works with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Both the T-shirt scarves and suit totes are cut and sewn by adults in the program, giving them an opportunity for independent living. collection

Comments about RECYCLED COTTON ANIMAL "STOLES" - SKUNK AND MINK:

I love this scarf and also purchased one for my mother for the holidays. I live in FL so finding just the right "warmth factor" is hard and this scarf is great for brisky mornings and is still okay when our temps reach 70. It does wear/stretch a bit after wearing all day.

    I bought the skunk stole and it is so cute! I had looked at it in the catalog for awhile before deciding that I HAD to have it. I am so glad that I finally gave in and bought it! People notice it every time I wear it.

      This is a very cute scarf! It always gets a big smile when I explain that it's a "mink stole". It's a little narrow for my taste, but it's very warm.

        Skunk scarf snafu

        Comments about RECYCLED COTTON ANIMAL "STOLES" - SKUNK AND MINK:

        Well....I would have loved to have purchased this for my daughter for Christmas but it was a hassle! Item said "in process" for over a week and held up other items that I was waiting for. Called Customer Service, they were going to research and get back to me..never received a call back. Then, emailed and received an uninformative response asking me when I wanted this product??? Called AGAIN and finally got someone who was able to tell me it had been BACKORDERED for 4-6 weeks...my order never said a thing about backordered. Good grief. Won't be using this site again. It was too time consuming and too unprofessional.

        It's a gift that will be used as a scarf.
        It is whimsical and unusual.
        Could be more tightly woven (like picture in catalog.)

        Comments about RECYCLED COTTON ANIMAL "STOLES" - SKUNK AND MINK:

        It's lightweight enough to wear as a scarf. I wore it to a party and all of my animal-loving friends raved about it. One of them sent me an email afterwards to get the website so that she could order one too. I love that it's made in the USA from recycled cotton.
