Introducing: Neval – Sustainable Luxury Made in Chicago

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I attended the launch party for Neval,  a Chicago-based sustainable luxury label started by Designer Anadil Johnson. I met Johnson years ago at a fashion event and I’ve been following her on social media ever since. I’ve  been mesmerized watching her incredible journey in creating and launching the line – see for yourself on their instagram page.

Neval, meaning ‘New Village’, ethically sources Jamdani fabric from the Golden Village in Bangladesh.  Jamdani is a special hand-woven technique, still made in the same way as when it was intended for the Royal Mughal family.

The limited edition Monarch collection marries the ancient weaving technique with edgy modern design. Current pieces you can shop include a cool bomber jacket (that is also reversible) and a long skinny scarf, both styles available in a few color ways.

It is important to note that some companies try to use the words ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’ simply as buzz words to attract conscious consumers. Other brands may even donate a portion of proceeds to charity which is a great thing to do. But Neval goes a step further to benefit society in the most impactful way, by providing jobs and paying fair wages to its employees.

I picked up the skinny scarf and recently styled it as a turban for an easy beach look. Below are a few snaps from our day at the lake.
