Organic clothing is clothing that is made from materials that are raised or grown without the use of chemicals in the form of pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals.

Many clothing retailers market organic clothing ranges that contain many chemicals from dyes to bleaches and other chemicals to aid transportation many thousands of miles from their manufacture in places such as India and China.  We suggest you contact your government for the most current standards and requirements regarding labeling and marketing of organic materials.  Authentic organic fabrics and clothing can help the environment in a number of ways.

  • manufacture of chemicals is not required
  • chemical residues are not entered accidentally into the environment
  • Humans and animals are not exposed to chemicals
  • when the fabric is finished with chemicals are not returned to the earth in landfill, or enter into recycling process.

Organic clothing is also often referred to as Green Clothing or Green Fashion.
