Your life moves fast—and to keep up, you have to, too. So when it comes to shopping, there's no denying that online ordering saves you time (even as you reminisce on the joys of aimless window shopping).

Sometimes, it's good to take a pause from your fast-paced life and allow yourself a moment to enjoy the process as much as the product—yes, even when it comes to shopping. That’s why we’re inviting you to catch your breath and leisurely peruse The Slow Shop at our new experiential space, House of Good.

Visit us on Abbott Kinney in the heart of Venice, California from Friday, August 4 to Sunday, August 6 to check out our curated collection of summer essentials that all have one thing in common: They're all made with cotton for a simple way to shop more sustainably. From skin care infused with cottonseed oil to luxuriously soft cotton bedding, you'll be amazed at how many different types of planet-friendly products are made with natural cotton.

No need to worry if you’re not local to the Los Angeles area. Keep scrolling (slowly) to virtually experience the showroom and shop all the featured, easy-to-care-for products that’ll last you a lifetime.
