About Smith Bowen + Our Philosophy
Smith Bowen organic makes ultra feminine compostable bra and underwear sets. From forest, farm and fields smith bowen brings impactful hand dyed under layers to the healthiest homes. Known for crafting high quality details that support both your health and our planet. All under layers biodegrade at end of life. A low impact earth friendly option vs the over crowded landfill makes sense to us.
At smith bowen we move through the world slowly and mindfully, respecting everything and everyone that exists. We consciously remain transparent about our process .Go ahead, ask us anything .
The design process at Smith Bowen is to first consider the fabrics and what will eventually happen to them. We work our way backwards to create a zero impact product. By avoiding land fills we can achieve a closed-loop circular economy. Organic cotton seeds are planted in regenerative farms to produce organic cotton, to then be made into Smith bowen under layers . When garments reach the end of life they are then returned back to the soil creating a soil to soil low impact economy. Now that's what you call circular. Each garment comes with wild flower seeded hang tags to help establish the composting cycle. Everything is connected.
" Sustainability is holistic" As we take care of the earth, we take care of each other, and this allows each other to live vibrantly. The cycle continues as long as we are mindful of our impact and that begins with our values.
