This scarf from Treetie could be yours.

Treetie (pronounced like ‘treaty’) is a new online boutique offering eco friendly and fair trade women’s fashion apparel, accessories, and gifts. Its founder, Nichole Dunst, said the name of the company represents a treaty she’s forging between fashion and Mother Nature. Nichole and team carefully vet each item and brand to ensure that an ethical, and environmentally responsible approach to garment production is practiced.

“I hope to make it easier to make ethical choices when shopping for the latest trends,” said Nichole. “Treetie is not just an outlet for eco-conscious shopping, but also an ode to the Earth and a mission to help preserve all it has to offer.”
