New York clothing designer, Jivelle Callender, proudly announces that Mandinez.com an online shop featuring unique, colorful, and attractive Mandala-inspired apparel, is now 100% organic.

The new line focuses solely on wonderfully soft organic T-shirts, and sturdy cotton totes, in addition to brand new designs.

The sweatshop-free, fair-labor practices, socially-conscious apparel, which uses certified organic cotton and sustainable printing using water-based colors, now features 14 designs (from five), including the new Bouquet Mandala design.

Mandinez.com can be worn as casual or fitness wear for men, women, teens, and anyone into fitness, yoga, general comfort or who strives to be environmentally-friendly.

My inspiration came from Mandala Meditation, which comes from primarily Buddhist or Hindu colorful and symmetrical visual symbols representing the universe, used as an aid in meditation, but these symbolic patterns exist by different names in many cultures

Mandinez.com offers the following items, which cost between $25-$50, in the following sizes in all 14 designs, including Peace, Bouquet, Purple Haze, Purple Fantasy, Rainbow Lotus, and Night Star:
- Unisex T-shirt: S, M, L, XL, 2XL
- Women's Fitted Tee: S, M, L, XL, 2XL
- Organic Cotton Tote: 20" x 14" x 5" (colorful design on both sides)

Discounts are offered for first time buyers at 10% off the total order (Code: MANDINEZ10), and 15% off the total order for first time buyers who also sign up for Mandinez.com's e-mail list on its new website. Wholesale and international orders are also accepted.

"My inspiration came from Mandala Meditation, which comes from primarily Buddhist or Hindu colorful and symmetrical visual symbols representing the universe, used as an aid in meditation, but these symbolic patterns exist by different names in many cultures," said Callender.

"Through the Mandinez.com line, I want to project an image of calm, health, green living and well-being incorporated with casual comfort, uniqueness, functionality and a fashion edge, without being stodgy, preachy or too crunchy granola; although I'm pretty crunchy granola myself.

After drawing, painting and coloring different Mandalas, I decided I loved the way they looked. And since I like to wear them, perhaps others would as well. It's a good way to remind myself to go back to a peaceful place when life gets very hectic."

As an artist and designer in Brooklyn, New York, Callender sought to expand her creative horizons by seeking alternative forms of meditation, such as Mandala Meditation. Mandinez, which she launched in January 2007, is a tribute to the very sources of Jivelle's inspiration.

The name is derived from Mandala Meditation and Callender's middle name Ines, which she shares with her mother and grandmother.

Both women continuously spark her artistic and spiritual sides. In addition, Callender was one of 12 featured designers at the Canadian International Modeling Agency Mantra fashion show in October 2007.
