Keeping Cool in CP Shades

Summer is coming and with that hot weather. Although most of us won’t be going on those European trips or Caribbean cruises, we will still need some new duds to keep us cool while we staycation at home…walk the dog…make that exciting trip to Trader Joe’s.

Longtime customer favorite CP Shades makes the best linen. They’ve been mass producing their hand made products in the San Francisco bay area for over 40 years. I get comments once in while on the price point. No… it’s not inexpensive. That’s because they cut and sew the product in their own factory on the waterfront using 100 percent renewable energy. CP Shades products are garment dyed, sustainable, uncomplicated natural fiber clothing. I order several pieces for myself every season and they just get better with age.

Linen is the perfect summer wardrobe staple. The long sleeve shirts keep you cool while also protecting you from the sun. The dresses are easy and comfortable, easily dressed up or down. If you’d like to try any of these items in the store, private appointments are available using this link. If you’d rather try them in the comfort and safety of your own home, fill out our Bird Bag form. There are many more styles on our website! We will drop the bag off, and you’ll have two days to try them on. We don’t charge for this service or take your credit card information unless you are ready to purchase.
