Amour Vert is kind of a fashion darling right now. There's even a triumvirate of beautiful blonde lifestyle experts —Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Blake Lively— who champion the eco-friendly San Francisco's retailer's wares. Now, the label is a finalist in the Stewart's American Made contest. And it's not the only San Francisco brand to get a nod from Martha. Piece x Piece, a Dogpatch-based business takes a disruptive approach to design by using "forgotten sample fabrics" to create luxury designs, also made the final cut.
Online voting in the American Made contest runs from September 15 to October 13. Winners will be announced on October 17. The full list of nominees and finalists is available here.
