organic cotton

"Retro Posy"
"Let It Grow"
These are the first three organic cotton fabrics in our "Organics" category. The fabrics "Let It Grow" and "Graceland" are from the company HarmonyArt.. HarmonyArt was founded by Harmony Susalla, a woman who is committed to help expand the use of organic cotton globally.
What is organic cotton ? Organic cotton is cotton that is grown without the use of harmful fungicides and pesticides. The fabrics are treated with non-toxic products such as safe peroxide to whiten, natural soybean softener, low-impact fiber reactive or natural dyes and low impact or natural pigment colors to print. The production of organic cotton is healthier for the people farming it and for our planet.
The initial production costs are higher and the demand is still relatively small so the price of organic cotton fabric is more expensive than the conventionally produced cotton fabric but the long term advantages are priceless. I am committed to offering you all an alternative to the conventionally produced cotton fabrics and will be adding more organic cotton prints and solids from HarmonyArt, Atlantis, Robert Kaufman and Marcus Fabrics over the next few months. The first three fabrics can be found here.
