“Pray for Mother Nature” is the brain child of Chip Foster, the other half of the Chip and Pepper denim duo (so let me tell you that he really knows what he is doing when it comes to denim), and his wife, Nicole Foster.
During a trip to Japan they were amazed at how much the Japanese respect the environment. And thus, the idea of having an eco-friendly jeans line made of the softest, lightweight denim was born and naming the label “Pray for Mother Nature” was a natural step to take (a portion of their proceeds will be donated to charity). Although, the idea for the brand came from abroad the line is strictly made in the USA.
There are nine styles for jeans that range from skinny cargo leggings to a straight leg. They all have very amusing names such as “Slick Rick” or Nomi Malones”- now who wouldn’t want to wear that?
For the Spring 2011 collection, the brand debuted three new denim fabrications developed especially for the line along with their unique to the brand washes, ranging from indigo, lighter blue vintage washes, charcoal to olive. The collection not only showed jeans but a variety of pieces all in denim fabric such as a pastel green blazer, tank tops, wide-leg tuxedo pants, ruffled skirts, plaid denim, denim cardigans. But the piece de resistance was a jacket made from nearly-50-year-old vintage Levi’s denim selvage. Only 300 of the jackets will be made and each will be numbered.
Get on line, however make sure you are willing to shell out the bucks.
Price points are from $162 to $198
While you pray for mother nature she surely will be returning the favor!
