♥ What's in my Closet: SpiritHoods ♥

"There is a transformation that takes place when you wear a SpiritHood.
This experience is un-definable, and completely unique to you . . ."

I could not agree more with this statement. In fact, if I could use one word to describe SpiritHoods… well I simply couldn't, I don't think an awesome enough word exists out there. Radiculously Fantabulistic Awesomeness? Nope, still doesn't do the trick. Okay, let me just tell you that they are the best things ever and you must own one. 

I fell in love with SpiritHoods about two years ago and have wanted one ever since. They became my obsession for a good long while. Since then, they have boomed like crazy, and for good reason--they're radiculously fantabulistic awesome, remember? Celebrities are popping up in them everywhere, not that I care about the celebrity world but it just goes to show that this trend is an awesome one, and it is so much more than a trend, and I believe it is here to stay. 

"We all want to be unique and appreciate the love and bond we share with our family and friends, our BrotherHoods, our SisterHoods, and our Tribe. SpiritHoods are more than just a wild accessory, they represent this bond and connection we have with our wild natures. Whether you love fashion, adventure, animals, music, festivals, nightlife, the outdoors, or are simply wild at heart – SpiritHoods are a NECESSITY for your life style. It’s simply about letting loose, being wild, and having a good time."

Aside from the pure gorgeousness of these beautiful furry hoods, I fell in love with the message that this company stood for; a love for animals and the promotion to save them. SpiritHoods is a super positive and inspiring company, doing good and spreading love. What more could you possible ask for?

Sadly, fur has been popping up again here and there, and so it's nice when a company like SpiritHoods steps in to promote faux-fur instead of the real thing. I live in a small "hippie" town where these such "hippies" tend to be hypocrites at times, and one trend I have seen popping up are fox tails. Real fox tails. And other various animal fur clothing, accessories, and products. I don't know what compels people to these hideous fashions at the expense of animal's lives, but it is sad and it needs to end. SpiritHoods promotes the end of that industry and the preservation and value of animal life, standing up against the filthy murderous fur industry and proving that faux-fur looks so much better than wearing some poor animal hide anyway. "Fur is green" is a new trending promotion, but if you're falling for this then it's time you do some research (or let me do that for you and you can read my article coming later this week), as it takes more than 60 times as much energy to produce a fur coat than a fake fur one. 

Anyway, I'm getting a little off topic, what I really want to emphasize is how amazing SpiritHoods are! Not only do they use Faux Fur, they also support animal preservation. Their "PRO BLUE" SpiritHoods is an initiative that donates 10% of net profits to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the particular Spirit animal the Pro Blue Logo represents. Meaning, if you buy a Panda SpiritHood that 10% goes to Panda International, an organization dedicated to saving Pandas. But a Wolf Hood and it supports WolfHollow, etc. etc. You can see their PRO BLUE page Here ( to see which SpiritHoods support which conservation organizations.   
In 2011, SpiritHoods donated $35,00 to help protect wildlife. Thank you SpiritHoods! :)

"We believe in inspiring positive change, and the truth is we can all help, this is why we have created PRO BLUE! …
 A major goal of ours is to educate people on the importance of helping these animals and empower them to make a difference."

One last thing that I have to boast about SpiritHoods is that they may do awesome work for animals, but they also make some hella' amazing Hoods! I absolutely love love love love love my Grey Wolf-Warrior! They were kind enough to send me it for a review and support ReLove (again, have I mentioned what an amazing company they are?!). Of course, I had to go with the "Warrior" hood (in case you don't know, the book "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" changed my life) and since I've always had a soft spot for wolves (especially living up here in Canada) I couldn't refuse this particular one. I think each SpiritHood is very unique, they have a story and I feel as if certain ones call to different people. You don't so much choose them as they choose you.  
The quality and fit of these Hoods is absolutely spectacular. You have probably seen the cheap knock-offs hitting stores and I will tell you right now--it's Not worth it! They are exactly that; cheap! Plus, those cheap knock-offs don't support animal conservation or practices either. ;) I've been around and tried on various of the cheaper brands, and even one more expensive brand I got at Shambhala last year (you've perhaps seen me wearing it in one of my Podcasts) but none of them compare and none of them fit as perfectly as SpiritHoods do. I don't want to bash other companies, but I am just going to say that there is nothing quite like a SpiritHood. Even when I owned my other furry hood, it was simply not a SpiritHood and I still found myself wanting the amazing hoods I'd had my heart set on for so long. 
There is an entire line of SpiritHoods for women, men, and even kids! How wonderfully fun is that?! They are super warm, built with beautiful craftsmanship (I'm a seamstress, remember? I know these things ;)), and fit like a charm. The gloves in the paws are a dream, perfect for keeping yours hands cozy warm or using them as pockets. The detail in each hood is superb and unique! No two are exactly alike; each one being handmade with particular attention to detail with the best quality faux fur to give them their unique characteristics and charm. They are ridiculously comfortable, beautifully luxurious, handmade with love and care, will last a lifetime, and are wonderful in every single way imaginable!
Enough said, what are you still doing here? Go treat yourself to a wonderful SpiritHood! ;) Remember, it's the gift that helps animals too!
