Calling All Designers!

The incredible team at Seattle Magazine have asked me to be a part of the "5th Annual Seamless in Seattle" design contest. This will be my second time joining a panel of extraordinary fashion insiders as we go through all the contestants and pick the winners.

The contest is open now until June 1st so be sure to apply if you want to take part. I believe it to be a great way to gain exposure for your line since your name/info will be up on the Seattle Magazine website and the winner(s) will also be featured in a full editorial spread in the September issue of Seattle Magazine!

Here's more info on how you can take part! Good luck!

Meet the Collective: Metamorphic Gear

I hear it from customers all the time... "why can't stuff be eco and cute at the same time? why is it one or the other?". As a designer of my own eco fashion line, SPUN, I try to make garments that offer the best of both worlds. I firmly believe that you don't need to make a choice when deciding to bring more green into your life.

This is why I was so excited to meet Lindsay Lawrence, the man behind the new Seattle brand, Metamorphic Gear. Lindsay's vision is to morph the two worlds of style and eco into his products.

"Lindsay is a world traveler, sailor and lover of the outdoors. Inspired by the outdoor equipment that he used while hiking, Lindsay wanted to design a range of stylish but reliable eco-friendly products for the outdoor enthusiast to use in their urban lifestyle. Having been involved with sailing both professionally and recreationally, Lindsay witnessed the durability of sail material before it was sent to landfill so decided to give it a new lease of life as the major ingredient in Metamorphic Gear’s products. Lindsay’s drive to create a company that is earth minded and forward thinking while always maintaining its integrity has attracted a team of likeminded folks. We are driven to innovate, create and deliver stylish, upcycled products you will be happy to bring into your urban life."

We proudly carry Metamorphic Gear's "Slate" Messenger Bags in both the solid colors (green, blue and red $130) as well the Limited Edition colors $150. Each bag is made using upcycled sails and used truck tarp materials.

Don't you love all the pockets?!?


You gotta see these bags in person so come on in to SPUN Sustainable Collective and take a look for yourself. Congratulations Lindsay on doing a remarkable job with these bags. We can't wait to see all the new styles you have cooking up!

Back in Stock!

Super excited to announce that the extremely funny and creative greeting cards from Seattle's own "the raven & the writing desk" are back in stock!

If you have ever shopped at the collective, then you are already familiar with these hilarious cards. If not, then here's a little taste...

inside reads: "but that's why I love you."

inside reads: "happy birthday bitch, let's celebrate!"

There are many other designs to choose from and all of them are priced at just $4/each. We sell out fast so if you are hoping to grab a few and don't have time to stop in right away, then please email us and we'll gladly put them on hold for you!
