As a mother, I am always looking for clothes that make me look hip and at the same time are comfortable to wear. When I opened the pack for the the “Flower Heart” shirt (pictured at bottom) and touched the soft cloth and saw the heart design in person for the first time, I was a bit overwhelmed. It was soft, it was classy, it was stylish, and it was hip…and then you read a bit about how a portion of each sale is used to provide meals to mothers and their young children in the developing world, and that moment transcends just holding a shirt. You really are holding hope woven into a shirt.
The shirt fit great, and since the weather here in the northern part of the country has been so cold, I decided that my first wear of the lovely v-neck shirt was to be under a cardigan. You could still see the front of the shirt, and people asked about it. It was nice being able to tell them that this shirt had a story, something you could tell people about.
This is not the only great shirt that Project Iris has to offer, though; they have a bunch of other great designs for women of any age. Another of the favorites I saw when viewing the website was the “Willows” design, but go and check out the whole catalog for youself to find your favorite.
What a great cause–and their initial contribution to the World Food Program USA provided meals to more than 12,500 mothers and children in need. As a mother, myself, I can really stand behind that cause and be proud to wear my support for it with their clothing.
Clothing that makes you feel good about yourself, both on the outside and the inside! If you are looking for a gift for Valentine’s Day, check out the Project Iris website and friend them on Facebook (info below). Maybe even leave your husband a little note (some of those men can be forgetful!). The shirts come with a very nifty little bracelet you or your children can also wear to support the cause. While the shirts look great in the pictures, make sure to check them out on the models and you can really see how good they look on. This will be one of my shirts that gets a lot of rotation in my wardrobe. Project Iris has been kind enough to set up a 10% discount code for BSCkids and BSCreview readers: BSC10
Made responsibly in the USA, Project Iris’ inimitable apparel retails between $43 and $47 and includes short and long sleeve v-neck and scoop neck shirts produced in buttery soft burnout fabric and luxurious ringspun cotton.

Combining style with substance and women’s advocacy, Project Iris has partnered with World Food Program USA (www.wfp.org), the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Through this affiliation, a portion of each Project Iris sale provides nourishing meals for new mothers and their children in the most poverty-stricken parts of the globe.
“There is a lot more to Project Iris than the striking clothes we produce,” said company President and CEO Neil Hoynes. “This brand was developed with a purpose – to give women that like fashion an opportunity, through their own social consumerism, to easily contribute to causes that help other women. We’re spreading a message of giving and hope that is reflected through Project Iris fashions designed and manufactured with great care. With this line, we intend to raise awareness, and funds, to positively impact world hunger, malnutrition and the health of women and children in developing countries. Our initial contribution to World Food Program USA provided meals to more than 12,500 mothers and children in need.”
