This week’s Sew & Tell is a re-broadcast, perfect for BTR’s “Best of Summer” theme! Today I have two fabulous guests whose line of sun-protective clothing will help get you and your wardrobe ready for all that summer sun in the months ahead! “But wait,” you say, “don’t all clothes protect you from the sun?” Well, yes and no. While your favorite organic cotton white tee might shield you from a burn, it doesn’t keep out the rays that can cause longer-term damage and contribute to your risk of developing skin cancer.

What’s a beach-loving lady or lad to do? Anne Botica and Monique Moore developed just what the doctor ordered: Mott 50. This line of stylish garments are well-constructed, fashion-friendly basics, and each piece has an SPF of 50 or higher! Which means that you can relax and enjoy beach days, picnics, and summer music festivals with confidence. On today’s show they’ll share about how they developed the idea for Mott 50, what makes these clothes so sun-friendly, and a few important skin care statistics that everyone should know.

Plus, some great music tracks from artists like Agnes Obel, Julian Lynch, of Montreal, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more! It’s fashion Friday here on BTR…
