Love walking into a quality clothing store where nothing is over
$30? Love environmentally-friendly clothing that feels super on the skin and looks just as sensational? Then you need to get to Ecowear, the only place I shop for clothing, as soon as possible.
If you love spending very little on items that were formerly four times the price - or more and feeling so happy with your purchase, you're smiling all day, please get to this clothing sale before the best bargains are snapped up.
The quality, sustainable clothing (did I say it feels sensational on?) is made from bamboo, hemp, organic cotton or crinkle cotton. There are both men's and women's ranges - and they currently have a lot of stock to move.

Ecowear is open from 11am to 4pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 3pm Saturday. The store is in Ormond, just 25 minutes southeast of the city between Caulfield and Bentleigh.
The address is 525 North Road (between Grange Road and the railway line, near the pedestrian traffic light crossing and a few doors up from the Post office).
Please note that the other outlets listed on the website are no longer open. However, luck for us, all the stock from those stores has landed at Ormond for a super shopping extravaganza in the one location.
Tell your friends - all your friends. There are lots of gorgeous items that make gorgeous Christmas presents too.
At this stage it looks like the sale might run through to around about Christmas, but the future of the store is currently uncertain - hence, the huge sale. (And hence my huge shopping feat.) If you're travelling a long distance, ring first on 9578 1070 during the store's opening hours.
