Sansom Street's SA VA has a full line of sustainably-made, eco-conscious women's apparel (most of which is made within the store's adjacent garment center), but store owner/brand founder Sarah Van Aken has a sweet spot for one item in particular. Here, Van Aken reveals the selling points of SA VA's best-selling Philly-made blazer.

We make the Lauren Blazer ($229) over and over again, and it goes with everything! It's casual, yet sophisticated—a perfect mix of feminine and masculine. Open in front, with beautifully draped pockets that add to the natural lightness and flow of the fabric. No detail goes unnoticed. It's simply to die for! · SA VA [Official Site]
