Global Ghetto Organics®
Eco-luxury. Good for the earth. Style meets substance.
Global Ghetto Organics® makes luxury bamboo apparel with tasteful,
understated style. Global Ghetto Organics' collection of elegant earth-friendly basics are
suffused with utilitarian sophistication: Painter's Jackets, yoga wear, ecoThermals, long and short-sleeved tees
all with incredibly yummy fabric, great cuts and discreet detailing. They
make their own bamboo fabrics with the richest most supple hand, soft
like cashmere but way more durable. Global Ghetto Organics are ecoWarrior outfitters
offering versatile luxury with a conscience.
Global Ghetto Organics bamboo is sustainable and the bamboo farm in China that
provides our bamboo fiber for their fabric is USDA certified organic. They
use Oeko-tex 100 dyes which set the highest standards to effect zero
impact on the environment. Bamboo is not eaten by bugs or fungus.
When bamboo becomes fiber the fabric has the same antibacterial
properties. Anti-bacterial means bacteria cannot grow in the fabric.
Surgeons have begun wearing their ecoThermals as scrubs because of this,
and because they're so soft and breathe so well.
All Global Ghetto OrganicsÂ® garments are meticulously
hand-tailored, with a subtle palette and impeccable fit. Luxury for
Now: a perfect mix of upscale and casual, for dressing down or dressing
up, wearable, classy, organic, sustainable. Artist's eye. Underground sensibility. Green conscience.
Global Ghetto Organics® was conceived by Steve Sas Schwartz,
a California-based artist and designer. His dual roots go deep into
underground culture and contemporary painting. He's been involved in
cutting edge street style fashion since the 1980s. A founder of seminal
skate shop-happening Skate N.Y.C. in the East Village, he helped define
the urban skate aesthetic. He's also an accomplished artist who's
exhibited widely, with paintings in public collections like MOMA and
other museums as well as the private collections of Halle Berry, Jim
Jarmusch and others. He's represented by galleries on both coasts. A
move back to the west coast proved the tipping point: caught up in the
Green Revolution, the artist-designer was inspired to make relevant,
wearable, sharp clothing for present and future.
