Eileen Fisher Undyed Organic Linen Long Jacket Overview

This jacket has so many specials features and components that go into it. It may look like just a plain old jacket to you, but it has so so sooo much more that goes into it. Let’s start with the color. Not only does it have a plain, distinct “no-color” color, or in other words according the the color wheel – beige, cream, etc., it is literally undyed, which means you don’t have to worry about all the harsh chemicals it could’ve been subjected to.

Now, let’s just start off by saying that I am a personal fan of all different sorts of colorful clothing, but once one goes into the research of how clothes are dyed, and all the toxic chemicals that are used to give your shirt the color it portrays – many of which being banned in the US as well as many other countries – it really makes you second guess what you’re buying and putting onto that beautiful, precious skin of yours. You might even think about how those types of chemicals effect the workers that created that product, and are exposed to those chemicals on a daily basis.

So, to rap it up, this Linen Long Jacket by Eileen Fisher is a guaranteed safe buy for not only you but the workers who crafted and put together this jacket since it is undyed, and since it is Eileen Fisher which is a widely known fashion label for its sustainability and ethical clothing. One thing I’d like to point out about them is they are not 100% vegan, and do still use leather, wool, silk, and other animal derived textiles.

Although this jacket is 100% Organic Linen, if you are a lifestyle vegan, the fact that this brand uses leather and other animal derived textiles could affect your decision weather or not to purchase this.

Getting into the comfort of this jacket, I personally believe that linen is one of the more comfortable fabrics out their, along with cotton, and although I do not personally own this jacket, often times when the fabric is also organic, it makes the fabric at least 10x softer. I have a 100% organic cotton shirt that I purchased recently – the only one I have at the moment – and it is by far the most comfortable shirt I own in my closet.

Pros:

  • Biodegradable
  • Organic material
  • ethically made
  • extremely comfortable

Cons:

  • Price
  • Bland color
