Meet your clothes maker
Despite what People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ad campaigns may imply, animal activists aren’t always naked—or wearing nothing but lettuce bikinis. When vegans do wear clothes, though, fur, leather, angora, cashmere and wool are off-limits. Buying organic-cotton and recycled-polyester women’s attire made in the Bay Area by JulesElin, however, is totally inbounds. Designer Julia Burnbaum creates both classic and modern feminine silhouettes, like cowl-neck knitwear tunics and coats with ruched collars that can also be worn as a hood. Shop online to buy, or meet your clothes maker in person at the Renegade Craft Fair San Francisco Holiday Market on Saturday and Sunday, December 15 and 16. Find more info at www.juleselin.com.
