The Pure Rootz fashion label brings organic cotton to the Lacoste customer. Whereas organic food has been a relatively easy sell to high-end customers, organic clothing has been a little tougher to get going. Organic goat cheese or cherry tomato confit sound delicious to just about anybody, but organic clothing might call to mind tie-dyed […]

Tel Aviv is home to all types of trendsetters – including the green ones. This past week the Miami Herald reported on what we’ve known for years: that Tel Aviv, while hot in general, is also one of the hottest green destinations of late. Their article reported on Tel Aviv’s urban farming, vegan/organic/local food options, […]
Since her launch in 2008, Egyptian fashion designer Nadia Nour has been wowing fashionistas with her elegantly glamorous and individual fashion range which also happen to be environmentally-friendly. Graduating with a degree in Fashion and Philosophy, it’s seems that Nadia Nour was destined to create an ethical fashion range that gracefully combines her love for […]
In Islam, fair-trade is more than just a fashion statement, it’s a deeply-ingrained value Many people wouldn’t normally associate Islam with fair-trade and ethical fashion but that is all set to change as a growing number of Muslim companies rediscover Islam’s fair-trade message. Whilst fair-trade fashion would generally conjure up images of well-dressed hippies, there […]
Is your skin all covered up with material that stops it from being able to breathe? Maybe you should rethink your choice of fabric. Sitting here in the sticky summer heat, it is difficult to choose what to wear when really any extra layer on our skin is something we wish we could avoid. The […]
H&M Israel’s CEO talks about his motive for importing H&M’s sustainable fashion line Thousands of Israelis have flocked to the newly opened H&M stores in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa – many of them unaware that they were, in fact, on their way to buying sustainable fashion. As we mentioned in a previous post, H&M […]
The thousands of Israelis crowding Azrieli Mall in Tel Aviv last week, anxiously waiting as early as 6am for a grand H&M opening that didn’t take place until 11am, probably didn’t know that they were about to shop for (affordable) sustainable fashion. H&M and sustainable fashion might not sound like they go together. H&M, the […]
The first time I entered Zendegi, a natural and organic clothing shop in Tel Aviv’s historic Neve Tzedek neighborhood, a particularly unique pair of boots caught my eye. I picked up the boots to take a closer look, but quickly realized that they were out of my intern-activist-blogger budget range. “But you have to understand […]
Support the organic cotton business in Egypt by buying Under the Nile brand toys and baby clothes. While Israel’s Katanchic is making groovy cotton baby clothes, and Turkey is brandishing their organic cotton in the steamy markets of Istanbul, Egypt has long been lauded as the Middle East’s king of cotton. Under the Nile, founded […]
On a recent trip to Istanbul, Turkey I found myself in a tree-hugger’s wonderland amidst the bustling labyrinth of the Grand Bazaar. In the heart of this Middle Eastern market, Abdulla Natural Products boasts a wide variety throws, blankets, covers, and shawls, as well as a full line of hamam products, or special towels and […]
A working relationship between the Middle East and Israel is possible and one innovative Israeli suit manufacturer Bagir has taken the initiative to extend its hands across the Egyptian border resulting in a union that is respectful, friendly and profitable. The outreach has been successfully achieved by Bagir Ltd, an Israeli company, by way of […]
You may not believe it, but the green stuff many people have growing as a decorative plant in their garden may become one of main fibers for manufacturing clothing, linens, curtains, and other fabrics that are presently being made from cotton (a very wasteful pant), and various synthetic fibers. Presently a number of fashion designers […]
Israel is only just catching on to the eco clothing trend, and for the environmentally conscious it can be a gut-wrenching, guilt-inducing dilemma just to go clothes shopping. So I’ve compiled a list of different eco clothing options. Firstly, there’s the Internet, and ordering of organic clothes from shops like Edun and Made online. However […]
We’ve already covered a few types of organic clothing here on Green Prophet – from organic baby clothes to organic designer clothes for women and even organic cotton tailored suits for men. But this is something entirely different. Because although we believe that shared concern about the environment can lead to greater peace in the […]
Last time, we interviewed eco-activist and journalist Michael Green. Next up in the Green Prophets in Focus series is Sophie Ohana, our resident Eco-Mum! Growing up on an organic farm in England instilled in Sophie a passion for all things green, a passion which she later transported to Israel. When it comes to children and […]
Well the kids are back at school, time to pamper ourselves a little. Being an EcoMum is not all about being knee deep in cloth nappies, eating organic and recycling. Okay, I admit, I do not spend hours shopping for the new trendy look and yes second hand shops and organic clothing are my buzz […]
Us Green Prophets believe that green education should start from a young age, and have already addressed ways that little ones can be eco conscious. Sometimes it’s recycling competitions at schools, other times it’s reading environmentally conscious children’s books, and sometimes it’s about what these little ones are wearing. Eco-Mum has already sung the praises […]
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the organic baby in the baby carriage. Today we would like to welcome, the guest post of Avi Yacove who has just helped give life to Baby Organic, a new online baby’s clothing store based in Israel. Writes Avi: Baby Organic came to mind as an idea […]
I know that in Israel we do not yet celebrate this joyous week, but coming from blighty and being a big old fan of cloth nappies I am going to throw down the gauntlet for us sometimes slow-to catch-up Israelis. England is celebrating Real Nappy Week from the 21st to the 28th of April: It’s […]
While the Christians are busy unwrapping their presents around the world for Christmas, the LA-based clothing company American Apparel, decided to launch a sale just for the Jews who complain that the only thing they get to do on Christmas day is eat Chinese food and go to the movies. Lucky for the Jews, there […]
