A few days ago I shared my pillowcases made with Organic Cotton Percale fabric from OrganicCottonPlus.com. My post was getting a bit lengthy, so I decided to come back later with a bit more information on organic fabrics.
The nice people at Organic Cotton Plus asked me if they could send me a few yards of fabric, in exchange for a review of their product. I’ve never used organic fabric before and I’ve never purchased fabric online, so this was a totally new experience for me.
Here’s what I ordered.
Here is what arrived.
I made a few pillowcases out of the fabric and have some fabric to spare.
These were a few of the links that were sent to me about “why” we should consider organic fabric.
The OrganicCottonPlus.com website has some great information too. The following three images are from their website.
Basically, my take away from this is the same as my thought on organic food. I buy organic whenever I can. (My farmer/cousins are rolling their eyes at me right now.) It’s better for the workers, the environment, and my family. I can’t always afford it, but I do the best I can. When I was purchasing fabric for pillowcases, I’m glad I went organic. Will I purchase organic all of the time? Probably not, but I would certainly purchase organic as often as I could.
Happy fabric shopping!
