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.
prAna Quality Gifts That Give Back:
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.
The fabric is a combination of 39% Nylon / 34% Polyester / 27% Wool.
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!
Which is your favorite color of the Marina sweater?
I had a really hard time deciding!

Not only do I prefer to shop with brands that give back I want to give quality gifts.
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!
prAna Comfortable and Fashionable Gifts That Give Back:
prAna clothing is made well, to withstand any sort of outdoor activity.
Even if your activity is simply jumping in a pile of leaves.
Their styles move with your body making them perfect for your adventures.
I feel proud giving prAna fashions as gifts and know from past experience they are well received and loved.
Let’s take a look at another prAna sweater, perfect for holiday gifting:
The prAna Aya Sweater is simply gorgeous!
Details and texture galore!
I absolutely love fashion that has different textures.
The Aya Sweater is made from a recycled wool blend.
Love recycled materials!
It has a cable knit and is lined with sueded fleece at the cuff and hem to provide extra comfort.
The first thing you may notice is the button details on the cuffs.
I simply love this sweater!
It certainly does not lack design detail.
I love the cable knit, and how it is a tad longer in the back than the front.
The blue stitching is another stand out feature of this sweater.
The Aya comes in cargo green, which is is the color I am wearing.
It also comes in gravel and auburn.
Materials are as follows:
Shell 1: 56% Wool / 20% Polyester / 20% Polymide / 4% Other Fibers
Shell 2: 40% Recycled Wool / 43% Polyester / 18% Nylon / 2% Other
When my fashion purchases can be gifts that give back I enjoy wearing them even more!
So do the people I gift them to.
My entire family is very earth conscious and care about what’s going on in our society.
It means a lot to them when I give them gifts that give back.
Just knowing that the gifts I give them are helping others puts a smile on their face.
Not to mention the smile when they open their present!
prAna’s core belief is that companies should give much more than they take from the world.
Committed to sustainability, community, and doing the right thing.
prAna believes that by doing so they can push themselves and others to find innovative ways to do good things, in a good way.
I hope while you do your holiday shopping you will buy from prAna.
