So, what is Thought exactly? Thought is a clothing company that believes in making easy-to-wear clothes that are sustainable and organic.
They only use natural fabrics like bamboo, hemp, and organic cotton in order to create fashion that fits the consumer’s lifestyle.
What do they consider the “Thoughtful Way” of making fashion? It’s fairly simple: believe it or not, the company works ethically from beginning to end. From the fabrics they use to how they design, make, and deliver their garments, they take into consideration how every aspect of their business impacts the environment, with the goal of minimizing their environmental footprint. Thought is also a proud supporter of slow fashion, which is why they design clothing intended to last, but they make sure their styles are contemporary and easy-to-wear as well. The clothes we love wearing most will last longer with good care, and their mantra hits this head on: “Wear me, love me, mend me, pass me on”. You should make this your motto, too!!
You’re probably asking yourself, well this is all fine and dandy, but what are Thought’s garments actually made of? To answer your question, they only use naturally grown bamboo, cotton, wool, and hemp. These fabrics are special for a few reasons: they are free from harmful pesticides and chemicals but are also softer and stronger, meaning they are guaranteed to be way kinder to the environment (this is pretty darn amazing, isn’t it?). Two recent additions to the fabric squad are the sustainable and feel-good fabrics known as tencel and modal. These new additions are really exciting and as the company expands their collections, the range of fabrics they use will also grow. Thought will keep looking for more new fabrics and when they find them, you will all be the first to know! So go now and bookmark the Thought website on your computer and keep on the lookout for more awesome fabrics (keep yourself in the “fashion loop”!).

Now it’s the time I’ve been waiting for this whole entire article…a chance to show you three of my absolute favourite pieces from the Thought clothing collection!! Lights, camera, action….annnd…here we go!!
Number one is none other than the Mood-Lifting Print (“Wear Yours on a Dress”) of the Desert Bamboo Maxi Dress!
This lovely bamboo jersey maxi dress with a flattering cross over V-neckline front is not only an exclusive and stunning print, but it is also hand drawn (how cool is that?). Made with 70% viscose derived from bamboo and 30% cotton jersey (certified organic cotton).
The second item that I would like to show you is actually a shirt for men (you are probably thinking, well it’s about time the men got some attention…but I have a few tricks up my sleeves that I will share at the end of this article about that, don’t you worry!). This Collectors Organic Cotton Shirt is really amazing in my opinion. It’s covered in butterfly print (new in season, too!)…that’s epic all in itself! It is also made from contemporary and wearable light weight organic cotton yarn and is a relaxing fit for any type of man. 100% cotton (certified organic cotton) poplin.
This next outfit is a new addition to Thought’s sustainable clothing collection and is the perfect fit for those nighttime cozies and cuddle times. These bamboo pyjamas are thoughtfully-designed for the ultimate restful night and are also incredibly stylish (so you can look “on point” when you are sleeping). Soft bamboo and organic cotton trousers paired with a supple organic tee; both designed to be loose-fitting. It doesn’t get any better than that! Made with 70% viscose derived from bamboo and 30% cotton jersey (certified organic cotton).
Well, this brings us to the end of my article, but before we say goodbye, I have a couple questions for all of you enthusiastic readers as well as a poll about some of the pieces you read about today. Both of these questions can be answered by heading over to Thought’s beautifully set up website and their “Thoughts” blog. So, to begin, if the collection is now called “Thought”, what was it formerly called before they changed their name? And second, (and please answer below in the comments) what article of clothing on their blog interests you the most and why? Also include the date the article was posted and who it was written by. This about wraps everything up for now, until my next article where I will looking into the wonderful world of men’s fashion and seeing what types of spring clothing is in style these days for all the dudes of the world!!
