SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA – FEBRUARY 23, 2011 Synergy Clothing Inc, a local Bay Area women’s organic clothing company, will be exhibiting their clothing brand at the upcoming San Francisco Green Festival on April 9 and 10th. With a contemporary fashion forward design style, Synergy makes all of their clothing out of GOTS certified organic cotton that is dyed with low impact dyes. Synergy makes clothing that combines sustainability, with modern yet timeless design.
Synergy is based in Santa Cruz, California and is run by wife and husband team Kate Fisher and Henry Schwab. Together they have successfully built an eco friendly clothing brand by integrating her interest in textile and fashion design, with his experience of working for GreenPeace and The Waterwheel Foundation. With a shared vision of a sustainable business model and respect for the Earth, they are bringing Synergy into the future.
Synergy looks to the world around in its approach to design, with a respect and awareness for the natural world combined with both modern and ancient cultural influences. Their clothing is hand made in Nepal according to fair trade practices, verified by their long-term relationships with their manufacturers. They specialize in making clothing with applique hand-work details, that gives the Synergy line a signature look. The appliqué work is done by Nepali women, who work for fair wages in the convenience of their homes, thereby creating employment opportunities in Nepal.
With a commitment to a sustainable business model, and an emphasis on community, the Green Festivals have proven to be an ideal environment to showcase Synergy’s products. The Green Festivals bring together a community of like-minded environmentally aware people, who are the quintessential Synergy customer.
Synergy is sold online and in over 300 stores in all 50 states, in addition to being sold in their first retail store that was opened in Santa Cruz, California in 2010. With an ever- growing fan base, Synergy’s goal is to make women feel good when they wear their clothing, while feeling good about the way it was made.
