Baby Naturopathics Inc : They have their
own line of 100% certified organic cotton embroidered infant
clothes. Clothing is wholly made under the watchful
eye of SKAL International, an internationally recognized body
based in the Netherlands that inspects organic production methods.
They did this so that the entire garment is SKAL certified,
and not just the cotton fabric. Not all natural clothing
is created equal. Be careful of cotton that is described
as "undyed", "untreated", "natural"
or "green" cotton. These labels are sometimes used
to market conventional cotton. To ensure that you are buying
an organic cotton product, look for "certified organic"
cotton. Certified organic cotton has been inspected by
a well-recognized third-party certifier such as Demeter International,
Agreco, Skal International, and the Soil Association.
In addition, look for "100% organic cotton". "Organic
cotton" or "made with organic cotton" is not
necessarily the same as "100% organic cotton".
For example, an outfit that is made with SKAL certified organic
cotton from one country, and then further processed in another
country can no longer be considered SKAL certified as SKAL inspects
the whole production process. Thus, you should choose
a garment that is SKAL certified, rather than a garment simply
made of SKAL certified organic cotton. This is an important
distinction as the integrity of organic cotton fabric can be
weakened by adding embellishments that have not undergone SKAL
inspection. Examples of such alterations include nickel fastenings
which may cause skin irritation, and iron-on transfers and that
may contain ingredients like phthalates. For their
baby clothing and accessories, they have chosen organic
dyes, which are kinder to your health and that of the environment
than conventional AZO dyes. AZO dyes contain toxic chemicals
such as chlorine bleach and heavy metals. They also do not biodegrade
easily and some dyes are cancer causing. Their clothing
and accessories are made in India. They indicated that
they personally inspected the production facilities, so
they can attest to the fact that their apparel is sweatshop
free (SKAL also sets out criteria for working conditions).

Cotton Field : Many hands work to make Cottonfield products. Since they are committed to using only top quality factories that treat and compensate their workers fairly, they indicate that they never use sweatshop labor. They work with a small number of farms, weavers and dye-houses that are chosen for the environmental sustainability. They choose their employees for their commitment to producing good work and they do their best to create an environment of compassion, optimism and humor in what is known to be a stressful industry. They value quality before growth, people before profit, and they are happy to take part in a company that is green, not only in its products, but in its point of view. They supply clothiong for women & men's dress, casual and retreat styles. The cotton is grown by small farms in Texas, Northern California and North Carolina and then is woven or knit into fabric by textile mills in North and South Carolina. A sketch and idea is born in our Boston studio and the fabric is chosen and purchased from one of the mills. A sample is then made by a local seamstress in MA. Once all the details and settled and buttons are chosen or length changed, a local marker man grades the pattern for mass production. If the fabric needs to be dyed, its sent to a local dye house in NH which specializes in direct dye without using heavy metals. The fabric is then shipped to a local MA factory for cutting, this is where they cut all the fabric pieces for the finished garment. The pieces are then sent to a woman owned factory in MA where they are sewn into finished garments. The clothes are checked for quality control at Cottonfield and then wrapped and sent off to you !

Jim Morris :
Since 1995, they have printed tan organic t-shirts. Now they
are happy to offer organic cotton shirts in colors. All their
adult short sleeve uni-sex t-shirts are now organic. Organic cotton
is cotton that is grown without the use of pesticides. Pesticides
kill millions of birds, fish, and other wildlife. They also harm
farmworkers and neighbors of the fields. Pesticides blow around
and harm people and wildlife thousands of miles away. According
to them, conventional cotton uses approx 25 % of the world's chemical
pesticides! They hope you'll support their conversion
to organic. As awareness of the value of organic cotton spreads
and as availability increases, they look forward to being able
to offer womens, youth, long sleeves, and sweatshirts in organic.
Also, their natural totebags are organic cotton canvas and
made in Colorado.
Kasper Organics : When Aleta first learned about organic cotton clothing, she knew she wanted to make it a part of her life. She always thought cotton (conventional) was a good, natural product. It never occurred to her that the cotton clothing she was complacently buying was loaded with toxic chemicals. Not just the pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers used to grow the cotton, but the chemicals used to process, bleach and dye the cotton as well. She thought to herself, "If I was buying organically grown food for my family, why was I buying toxic clothing? What we wear may not seem as important as what we eat, but our skin is not a solid barrier protecting us from everything we come into contact with. Our skin lives and breathes and can also absorb toxins". Aleta now sells organic cotton clothing, hemp clothing and accessories.

Onno Textiles : organic cotton, bamboo and hemp t-shirts. Since 1992 they have been manufacturing cotton-based products for some of America's largest companies, such as Nike, Pepsi and Speedo.
