This project is to fund the production of the 2014 Salts Summer Organic Clothing Collection. The entire line is made with a soft and lasting Viscose from Bamboo, Organic cotton blend fabric. As you back this collection by choosing your garments you are empowering us to produce the garments for you.

The Anantya (Infinity in Sanskrit) can be worn in several ways. Wear it doubled up or as a long scarf. You can also wear it as a shawl, shrug hood or wrap. It pairs well with all our other pieces.
People really do dig our leggings. You will too. Stacy from Victoria says, "Your tights are still my most favourite ever. I have had them for a couple of years!". Our leggings have a gusset in the crotch area to provide a smooth front look and move with your body. These leggings are full length to the ankle. The waistband is elastic and covered in fabric to feel soft against your skin. They are thick enough to wear for light yoga.
This sleeveless top is perfect for under jackets or cardigans but also holds it own on a warm day. When the straps are worn up they cover most bra straps fully. Wear the neckline off the shoulder for a pretty evening look. The top is cut away from the midsection to not be clingy and creates a flattering silhouette.
Pairing perfectly with the Destiny top is the Karuna skirt. The Karuna skirt is going to be your favourite go to piece for the summer. It can be easily dressed up or down depending on the day ahead of you. The waistband is soft and doesn't cause bumps under longer tops.
The Asana tank has a cross back design and flattering style lines. It has a built in shelf bra for light support. It can be worn as a fashion piece or for yoga.
The Prana skirt has front and back style lines to flatter your figure. It also has a ruffle hem and the hem falls asymmetrically from left to right. It has a fold over waistband which can be work high waisted or folded down. The pretty front ruffle adds a bit of feminine flair. The waist band lays flat under long tops.
The Viargya top is long and comfy. So soft and flowy you can get lost in it. Belt it or hang loose. It has a wide neckline that can fall off the shoulder but doesn't have too. Wear a tank underneath to cover bra straps if your wearing it off the shoulder.
The Ahimsa top is a cute and functional classic piece. The classic cowl neckline is flattering on most women but add a sassy pocket and its even better. Great for work and play.
One of the funnest pieces of this seasons collection. Pretty pin tuck style lines flatter your curves. The feminine neckline covers most bra straps. Hemmed just above the knee.
Oh Abhyasa dress how we love you so. This dress has all the right things in all the right places! Ruching details along the waist really flatter the midsection. The pretty asymmetrical ruffle adds a funky flair. You can belt this dress in the middle and really up the style factor. Dress it up for evening or dress it down for daytime. The choice is yours!
How do I wash my new clothes?
Being the eco lovers that we are, we always recommend a cold water wash and hang to dry. The good news is however if your in a rush all the items can be tumble dried on low to medium heat. We recommend using a phosphate free gentle natural detergent.
What sizes do you offer?
Well quite a few actually. Here is our size chart!
If your unsure of where and how to measure yourself please send us a message and we can walk you through the process!
What colours are available?
***Notes on colours! The colours on each computer screen may show up differently. Look at the colour closer on the photos and video to get the best idea. YES we are offering some items in the White and Gold colours as well!*****
What if it doesn't work for me once I receive it?
We are happy to exchange with anything we have in-stock if the item that you choose just doesn't work for you once you get it. If we reach our goal we will be making a few extra items for sale so we will have some stock to exchange with. We will have to ask you to pay the shipping costs one way for us (in Canada and US we will pay the return shipping to you), for international shipping you will need to pay shipping each way to exchange your item.
This Summer collection is made from a knit fabric blend of GOTS certified organic cotton, viscose from bamboo with a very small percentage of Lycra.
Bamboo Viscose adds sheen and a beautiful texture to the fabric, it is a soft and luxurious feeling fabric on the skin. Bamboo Viscose holds colour very well over time and also resists wrinkling.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of herbicides or pesticides. It adds a bit of texture to the fabric to make it wick moisture better and not cling to the skin. Organic cotton gives the fabric a soft natural feel.
Lycra is added to help the fabric move with you and keep its shape. Lycra also helps to prevent clothing from getting misshapen or shrinking.
Why a Kickstarter?
Through the years that Salts Clothing has been making organic clothing with ethical manufacturing since 2005. In that process we have made thousands of pieces of clothing. Some of our very first products (like Annes Green Hoodie shown in the video) are still in action almost 10 years later. We have never had a problem making GREAT products.
Factories require large minimums to make products and for good prices. Kickstarter allows us to sell more before production so that we can produce more products. By you funding the line ahead of time it will allow us to make YOU exactly the product you have been wanting. This also helps us make our fair-trade and certified organic cotton products at an affordable price as we can increase our production numbers.
Your size and color is ALWAYS available because we are making it just for you. Yeah no more SOLD OUT Medium size black leggings!
Some Fine Print:
We may have to charge a bit extra for shipping internationally depending on your area. You have our word that we will not make any proceeds on shipping but to keep our business viable we may need to charge you a bit extra if the post man charges us too much. For USA and CANADA orders this should not be an issue.
The World is a huge place and at this point we are not sure where you are and how much it will cost to ship to you. In the event that your shipping charges for international shipping are over 15% more expensive then we charged we reserve the right to connect with you to request a small additional payment to cover the difference (probably just a couple of bucks don't sweat it). If your concerned contact us before you back us and we can do a shipping calculation for you. See we told you. No sweat.
Salts is also a member of Kicking it Forward to help promote other projects.
Risks and challenges
This isn't our first time! We have produced many collection and are confident that the pieces will arrive looking perfect.
There are always small potential problems that could arise during production. We have been through most of those problems and delays in the past so we are masters at planning ahead of time. We know how to make sure that we are clear on all the details and quality standards of the garments to our suppliers.
