baby jean organics

I know (hope) you’ve seen some of my flickr pictures of baby jean. And I am so excited about it! These are some of the softest fabrics that I have ever seen. The softest that I have ever used. I have really enjoyed cutting into it. And here is the info on organic and what makes it special…

Organic cotton starts from the beginning. Seeds are left untreated without insecticides and are not genetically modified. Crop rotation is used to build strong healthy soil so no fertilizers are needed. The soil also retains water more efficiently thanks to the increased organic matter in the soil. Weeds are physically removed rather than using herbicides to kill weeds. Organic pest control is used by having beneficial insects. To harvest the cotton in an organic way relies on the seasonal freeze for defoliation, not on toxic chemicals. Conventional farming devours roughly a third of a pound of pesticides and fertilizers to produce enough cotton for a single t-shirt. All of this information was found on About Organic Cotton.

Well, here is the good stuff! My new line of baby jean organics. It’s a small and simple collection for now. It consists of a blanket, burp cloth, wash mitt, and ella the elephant. I might be persuaded to make a bib! To see the rest of the collection visit my website.

  1. Hey there Katie!

    Great post!

    I’m a member of a co-operative in Canada called SUMAC. We own a couple of companies here, and have recently begun to develop one we are calling ‘Wear Fair”. The concept is simple, really! One of our members visited a cotton producing area in India recently. The producers there are growing entirely organic, and they are also fair trade certified. We have recieved our first shipment of garments, and they are top notch!

    If you keep an eye on http://www.sumac.coop, more information will be coming up as it becomes available. We’ll have a video up very soon documenting the process!!

  2. So exciting! I can’t wait to see the collection. Are you still thinking about doing the craft fair in Newcastle in August?
