Hey there fashion fans! Welcome to an all new Friday of Sew & Tell on BTR! In honor of this week’s Energy theme on the station, I had the incredible opportunity to speak with the design/production team behind Appalatch, a newly launched brand for sustainable knitwear, and what could possibly be the world’s first solar-powered sweater! Mariano deGuzman and Grace Gouin are friends with a shared passion for classic, durable, sustainably produced knitwear. They launched their Asheville-based brand earlier this year, but have already gained a loyal following through savvy use of social media and Kickstarter, combined with quality knitwear classics that are ethically built to stand the test of time. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Mariano and Grace about how the idea for Appalatch was formed, why the brand’s ideal location is in North Carolina, their recent acquisition of a high-end knitting machine from German manufacturer Stoll, and some developments in the works for 2014 that will raise the Appalatch label to an impressively pure standard of ethical and sustainable production. Plus, a energizing playlist full of thematically-appropriate tracks from artists like Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Kurt Vile, Best Coast, Free Energy, and more. So join us this hour for Sew & Tell, and get inspired to spring into the new year with energetic & sustainable fashion, right here on BreakThru Radio!

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...
