organic cotton dots
Last week I received the first shipment of organic cotton poplin fabrics that Aura Herbal Wear is printing for Volksfaden, polka dots in two colorways white and mustard and white and raspberry. Promoting the use of organic cotton is a cause I am completely dedicated to and over the next few months , more organic cotton prints will be arriving.
I chose Aura Herbal Wear because the whole production and dyeing process is the most ecologically sound I have found. The dyes are all herbal dyes, the white fabric is sun bleached and the cotton is organically farmed. The fabric itself is soft to the touch and a pleasure to work with.
These kimono pajamas are the first project I made with the organic dots. The main fabric is Organic Dots Mustard and for the ties and trim I used the Grey Dots from Westfalenstoffe's organic cotton collection. The pattern is from Amy Butler's book "Little Stitches for Little Ones".
