Recently I've been wearing my Peter Jensen Bee Sweatshirt! This super comfy garment is made with 100% organic cotton. The light weight of this sweatshirt makes it perfect for the unpredictable spring weather. I love that the bee adds a bit of character and brightens up the shirt. The boxy, more short cut of this top makes it great for wearing with high waisted shorts. 

One of the awesome features about People Tree is the abundance of information about where each product is made. How cool is it that you can identify and read about the artisan groups that made your clothes? My lovely sweatshirt was made by People Tree's partners Assisi Garments, a social enterprise in India. I learned that Assisi Garments was set up by nuns to provide training and employment for deaf, mute, and economically disadvantaged women. It's wonderful that People Tree has been able to partner with them to make certain garments. If you're in the market for new spring and summer styles! I would highly recommend People Tree. I've been a customer for a few years now and their garments are incredibly well made and really do last! 10/10 would recommend! Our friends at People Tree have even been nice enough to give our community a discount code! Check it out & be sure to take a look at all their incredible resources and info on their site!
