In September I introduced you to sustainable fashion. In that article, I told you how prAna’s clothing is made from organic cotton, recycled wool, hemp, and other sustainable materials. We also learned how they work hard to keep our environment clean. In addition, we learned that they have fair trade and fair labor practices. Today my focus is to tell you how gifting prAna for holiday gifts that give back.

I for one love giving gifts that give back to others.

It’s not just during the holidays that prAna gives back.

Throughout the year they partner with several local and international charities to make a difference.

From cleaning up beaches to sending aid to areas affected by natural disaster, prAna always lends a hand.

Through the holiday season, they donate a portion of proceeds from a select collection of items to Outdoor Outreach.

Outdoor Outreach is a non-profit organization that transforms lives by connecting underserved youth with the outdoors.

This non-profit is very close to the hearts the people behind prAna, mine as well.

Aside from prAna being a wonderful brand that gives back, their fashions are very high-quality.

My Mariana Sweater in Dark Plum is a mid-weight sweater but is very warm.

Warm sweaters need not always be bulky!

The Mariana sweater is a mid-weight long sleeve crew next sweater with a cute zipper detail at the left shoulder.

I love details!

It has a raglan sleeve and I just love the color blocking and marled knit in stripe.

Other than dark plum it also comes in deep balsam and gravel.

prAna Puts Thought Into Their Designs:

Normally, I do not care for stripes across the chest area.

The stripes on the Marina sweater are placed in the perfect area, above rather than on the chest and I simply love it!

I think less is more when it comes to quantity and gift quality instead.

To me, the perfect gifts to give, or receive for the holidays are a nice sweater, and some cologne or perfume.

prAna has me covered when it comes to the sweaters!

They have men’s items too!
