Eco-Chic: Conscious Cashmere

The luxurious comfort that is cashmere may never be wallet-friendly, but at least now it’s eco-friendly. Chic and eco-conscious fashion line Burning Torch has been recycling vintage fabrics and turning them into delicate tunics and halters since 1999, and now founder Karen Craven’s developed a way to recycle precious cashmere. “[Cashmere] has the patina of time,” says Craven, who uses six vintage cashmere sweaters to create one new one. That patina, and the fact that each of the six sweaters that goes into one beautiful belted jacket or cardigan has its own silhouette and history, makes each Burning Torch cashmere piece truly unique. Find Burning Torch cashmere (like this elegant charcoal V-neck coat, $618), along with other recycled finds, at Blue Bee Boutique.
