    We cannot thank you enough for your amazing & inspiring support, in all that you do to help ishi keep on vestin'.

    Thanks to you, in 2014 ishi vest: provided fair-trade wages, designed exclusively with organic fabric, created near-zero waste, and used natural herbal dyes for chemical-free production. Due to our natural dyeing process, for each ishi vest you buy we recycle 462 gallons of water, save 12 ounces of chemical waste, and slash 88 pounds of Co2 emission, according to our production partners. Wow!

    Looking to save even more green?  

    Starting today, scoop up a huge $20 discount on one of several classic ishi vests. Choose from sea green, salmon, or charcoal. All 100% organic and 100% awesome. And bound to go fast -- shop now to get your size and color!

    Thanks so much for your ongoing support. We'll continue to bring you unique designs in 2015 that are ethically produced and making a difference.

     Thank you again and happy 2015!
