Eco-friendly Aventura Clothing for Travel

Always on the hunt for comfortable clothing to wear while traveling, I was delighted to learn about Aventura Clothing for women a couple months ago. I hadn’t heard of the eco-friendly brand before; it uses organic cotton, bamboo blends and recycled polyester in its variety of clothing — everything from sweaters and scarves to capris and dresses to hoodies and vests.

There’s a specific travel friendly collection that focuses on wrinkle-resistant items that pack beautifully. But I sampled a few items from its fall line that I’ve worn a lot in recent weeks as the Colorado weather cooled. Here’s a peek:

Tandy Cardigan, $79: This cute sweater is made of viscose (rayon), nylon and a touch of angora. I love the tie that gathers the sweater at the waist for a flattering fit — though I must admit, I think it would look better on someone with a bit more of a waist to show off! The 3/4 sleeves allows you to wear the cardigan over a slim-fitting long-sleeve shirt (with the long sleeves peeking out), a T-shirt or a tank top (like the one below!). Dry clean only. Comes in four colors, including Henna at left.

Samba Seamless Cami, $45: This camisole is billed from the “intimates” collection on the Aventura Clothing website, but I wore this under the sweater above, and I thought the pretty stretchy lace on the neckline and hem looked so cute poking outside of the sweater. The elastic straps have some give for a comfy fit; in fact, the entire tank top is super comfortable, made of 92% nylon and 8% spandex. It definitely has a slim fit, but the ruching on the sides is extremely flattering. I think this cami would be absolutely perfect if it had a built in shelf bra. Hand wash recommended. Comes in five colors, including Lead Blue at right.

The Aventura scarves are super cute and versatile, too. I have the Veleta scarf ($29) at left, in a great checked pattern in muted grey and a dark taupe, with multi-colored loopy thread, that complements so many other items in my closet (including the tank and sweater above). Made of rayon, this scarf is quite soft. Unfortunately, I don’t see this scarf available on the AventuraClothing.com website anymore, but you can check the brick-and-mortar store locator page to see if it might be in a store near you.

Thanks to Aventura Clothing for providing clothing to me for review here at The Vacation Gals!

    The need for a great (and durable) scarf was once again hammered home when I was in Italy last month. EVERYONE wears scarves and they really are one of the most versatile items you can pack. I’m always on the hunt for new ones. Will have to check out what they have.
