Organic Cotton Terry Robe from Gaiam

We don't talk about green fashion here -- because it doesn't usually even tangentially relate to the home.

But because we're talking about bathrooms this month and because bath robes are about as unfashionable as it gets we're feeling OK about this departure.

We were never bath robe people. They seemed unnecessary -- something in between pajamas and bath towels that we just didn't understand. Then we received super fluffy, wonderful bath robes as a Christmas gift two years ago.

Now, they're a part of our morning ritual that we can't believe we ever lived without. They're almost as critical as coffee; they're more important than slippers (socks will do, if pressed).

We like these organic cotton bath robes from Gaiam ($96). They look thick and warm and perfect for the morning coffee and paper. We won't be in the market for a new bath robe until ours have holes -- but we have considered buying one or two extra robes for when we have guests.

We think it's a really nice touch. What do you think -- wasteful or thoughtful?
