Fabulous Fabrics: Wildrose Farm Organics
OK, so the penguins in top hats are a little cheesy, but I’m always pleased to find organic cotton PRINTS. There’s a wealth of solids out there, but few prints. And since it was over 100 degrees for more days than EVER last month in Austin, I’ll take cool thoughts where I can get them. (In case you like the penguins, though, it’s a 54 inch wide organic cotton jersey knit.)
Penguins aren’t all that Wildrose Farm Organics has to offer, though. They have a range of fabrics available in either blanket form or by the yard, since their primary business is making clothing and rugs from organic and sustainable textiles.
Their color grown organic cottons come in solids and patterns in cream, tan, and a dusky green found in nature. Their organic cotton canvas comes in black, medium grey, periwinkle, and denim for only $9 per yard, which is a pretty good deal. Check out their full page of fabrics for the complete selection.
Wildrose Organic Farms states their goal as follows:
Wildrose Farm’s goal is to use the most environmentally sound resources available, manufacture them into quality products in a safe and clean setting, and discharge no toxins from the process.
To accomplish this goal, they have a zero waste policy for their clothing production. They reuse larger scraps to weave into rugs, and smaller scraps are made into paper. They are also involved with local organizations supporting sustainable agriculture, so that the environment is respected at both ends of the production process.
