We have now been online for almost 10 years and have decided to follow our hearts and what we practise as a family - we are now going fully organic, upcycled and vintage!
We will now be stocking exclusively, 100% pure organic fabrics. These will all have been certified by GOTS.
We believe that we as a business have a responsibility to stock only organic fabric. These fabrics are all natural from GMO free seeds and healthy soils as opposed to standard fabrics which are often treated with fungicides and insecticides. The dyeing and printing is low impact using natural dyes as opposed to chlorine bleaching and high temperature dying which in turn has a damaging effect on the environment. The heavy metals in pigments run off into waterways polluting waterways.
Here are some more sobering facts. Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. These chemicals are deadly. Factory workers breathe in their fumes during manufacuring. World Health Organisation estimates 20,000 deaths are attributed to pesticides alone. In America, more than 10,000 farmers die each year from cancers related to such chemicals.
We can no longer support this industry.
We will now only be supporting companies which are eco friendly, sustainable, fair trade and produce organic textiles.
We still will bring you the freshest boldest prints . You can buy in the knowledge that the fabrics you are purchasing are fully organic and are fair trade.
Thank you for your continued support, we all can make a small difference to the world we live in
