Clean Cotton: 16 Organic Cotton Resources

organic cotton from ten14 organic textiles

I talked on Wednesday about more of the trouble with conventional cotton, but don’t fret, my fellow seamsters! There are plenty of organic cotton resources out there to help you sew cute without any green guilt.

There are all kinds of companies – big and small – that are printing gorgeous designs on organic cotton and hemp/organic cotton blends. There are not only a range of company sizes here but prices as well. In general, smaller companies that can’t afford to buy in volume do have to charge more to make ends meet, and I think that’s OK! When you support the little guy, you’re helping these indie designers make a living from their creativity.

    Hi!
    I am looking for organic cotton sources so that I can sew and dye my own t shirts. Can anyone recommend where you can find yards of organic jersey cotton, cotton slub or organic pima cotton? Thanks so much!
