Why does the price change when I select a larger size?
Most of our European manufacturers price their items by size. The smallest size garment has the lowest price, and the price increases with each size up. These prices are determined by the amount of materials used. You can select and view each price by size before adding the item to your cart.
How do I know which of your products are certified organic?
The vast majority of the textiles that we carry in our store are certified organic. Those that aren't (e.g. some of our "handmade in Colorado" products), adhere to the same organic practices (feeding the livestock organic feed; use of non-toxic dyes, etc.), but simply lack the official organic certification due to the small nature of their operations. Under the description of each product, we have included the name of the certifying body for the products of that particular manufacturer. The certifying body and/or standards may vary, depending upon the country of origin.
What about the dyeing process?
We only carry products that are free of artificial dyes containing heavy metals.
During the conventional dyeing process of cotton garments, heavy metal dyes are often used. In addition, bleaches or optical brighteners are used to convert the natural off-white cotton color into that blindingly bright white that you so often see in garments; these chemical brighteners are also used to achieve strong, even colors in non-organic cotton clothing.
Cotton is beautiful. Naturally. That is why many manufacturers of organic cotton avoid the use of heavy metal dyes and instead use either no dyes at all or dyes that are free of heavy metals and formaldehyde.
