One of my favorite recent trends is sleepwear as streetwear. I love the effortless look and feel of long, unstructured garments that simulate pajamas and a robe (my sleepwear combo of choice) paired with edgy, feminine accessories.
I have many pairs, but when I came across Feel Good, a brand that not only produces beautiful, handcrafted pajamas, but that is actually trying to do good in the world, I was sold. The company was founded by Tess, a former New Yorker who left the fast-paced corporate world to work for a humanitarian organization in Indonesia. During one of her work related visits to Bali, she met Agnes, a remarkable woman running a pre-K school for underprivileged children with virtually no money and no support. Tess wanted to find a way to help.
Fast forward to Tess meeting Ratna, another remarkable woman who runs a workshop in Bali that practices green manufacturing under ethical and sustainable conditions. With a shared desire to help the poor in Bali (and Tess’s love of pajamas), they came up with the concept of Feel Good Pajamas. Each pair is handcrafted by local artisans using traditional methods of cloth making, and fabrics are sourced from Indonesia, Japan, and India and transformed into traditional Western men’s style sleepwear. A portion of the proceeds from every pajama set sold goes to support the education of the underprivileged children in Agnes’ school.
There are so many great styles to choose from in the collection, but I picked the Vionne Worldjama made out of Japanese denim because I love that particular fabric’s versatility. I just threw on my favorite long trench and my favorite slippers and voilà – my sleepwear was transformed into streetwear!
