Company Description:


Forest and Fin creates functional and screen-printed apparel that is inspired by the environment, sustainably made, and encourages people to spend more time outside.

Born out of founder, Lara Neece's love for art and the environment, Forest and Fin offers environmentally inspired screen-printed apparel, and is launching their first functional apparel item, a bicycle-friendly wrap skirt for women, this spring. With hidden fasteners to prevent fly-up and pockets to secure valuables, the Bicycle Wrap Skirt is versatile enough to wear to the office or the park and anywhere in between. Forest and Fin's screen-printed designs feature environmental elements (plants and animals), are printed with water-based non-toxic inks on 100% cotton products, and are packaged using recycled, reusable or biodegradable natural materials. After the Bicycle Wrap Skirt debuts in May of 2015, the company plans to expand it into a larger line of bicycle-friendly skirts, dresses, and other functional apparel all made with sustainable materials in the USA. 


Founder Bio:

 

Inspired by the environment and three-and-a-half years living on a small sailboat, Lara Neece spent the last of her savings on screen-printing equipment, set up a print studio, and created her company Forest and Fin. An award-winning artist and self-taught graphic designer (take a look at her art here:www.laraneece.com), she designed and printed her first nature-inspired screen-printed apparel by hand using water-based inks and a manual press. When she's not in her studio or behind a sketchbook or easel, she likes to spend time outdoors experiencing the world and gathering inspiration for new work.


About the Bicycle Wrap Skirt:
