Review: Kavalena Clothing

We've all heard about the company TOMS: you buy a pair of shoes and they give a pair of shoes to a child in need. Recently I discovered Kavalena Clothing, which takes this concept not just one step further, but into new territory altogether.

With every clothing purchase from Kavalena, the clothing brand is able to provide the following:
--3 meals for a child and their family
--1 hour's worth of clean water for a village
--1 hour of aftercare for an individual freed from slavery
--1 day of school for a child in Ghana, Africa
--1 hour of therapy for orphans with cerebral palsy and autism

Isn't that incredible? Think about how much you're giving to the world, just with one purchase. Not only are you helping others, but you get an awesome piece of clothing out of the deal as well.

I was sent The Everyday Tanktop in purple, and I absolutely love it! It's such a comfortable tank top. You don't feel like it's weighing down on you--it's light and airy, perfect for the oh-so-wonderful heat wave sweeping across our country!



(Arbitrary pic after I had just gotten out of research lab...my hair is still a mess from the goggles! It's always hot in the research lab, so the tank was just the right weight so I didn't roast like I usually do!)


I love the look of pairing the tank top with a simple necklace, sandals and skinny jeans. It's a casual look perfect for class or, in my case, research lab!

One thing I love about Kavalena are their little details. Look at the cute package the clothes came in. The twine and the Kavalena tag really fit with the theme of the clothing brand.


I also love how the tag of the tank top references a Biblical passage. I looked it up and it's quite relevant.
Eph 2:10: "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

I made a set featuring not only The Everyday Tanktop but another item of Kavalena's, The "Go To" Slouchy Pullover.

Another item of Kavalena's that I love is the Cozy Up Zip Up sweatshirt. Just like the tanktop, it looks so comfy! I don't wear many hoodies, but I would wear this one, especially since it's made slave free and with organic cotton. 



Go check Kavalena Clothing out! Not only do they spread a great message, but they have wonderful, well-fitting products that look good on everyone and, with every purchase, make a difference in the world.

    1. I agree, especially with the owner of the company being just out of college, I think. It gives me hope that there are some good people out there in the world and that my generation isn't just all about the money. Going to check out and follow your blog now! :)

    1. I know! It's such a good idea to pair up with multiple non-profit organizations rather than just one, like some companies do.
