Our Eco-Friendly Drape fabric is manufactured through a pioneer of Eco and Sustainable fabric suppliers since 1992. From pure to blend, light to heavy, woven to knit, you’ll be amazed what we are offering with Organic Cotton and Hemp, Soybean, Bamboo and Recycled Fibers. We hope that our collection will inspire you to create things that not only look beautiful, feel wonderful, but are also gentle to the Earth.
Organic Cotton Fiber
Organic Cotton is an Ecologically responsible and green fiber. Unlike conventional cotton, which uses more chemicals than any other crop, it is never genetically modified and does not use any highly polluting agro-chemicals such as those found in pesticides, herbicides and many fertilizers. Integrated soil and pest management techniques—such as crop rotation and introducing natural predators of cotton pests—are practiced in Organic Cotton cultivation.
All Organic Cotton growers must have their Cotton Fiber Certified according to governmental organic farming standards, such as those of the National Organic Program of the USDA or the EEC’s Organic Regulation. Each year, both land and crops must be inspected and certified by internationally reputable certifying bodies.
The Organic Fibers used in our fabrics are Certified by IMO, Control Union, or Ecocert, to name a few. Many of our fabrics are also certified to Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) by these approved certification bodies. We offer solid tracking records and clear traceability on each lot we receive or ship.
Hemp grows extremely fast in any kind of climate. It does not exhaust the soil, uses little water, and requires no pesticides or herbicides. Dense planting leaves little space for light, hence few chances for weeds to grow.
Its skin is tough and insect resistant, and this is why often Hemp is used as a rotation crop. Its fiber and oil can be used in making clothes, papers, building material, food, skin care products and even biofuels. No wonder it’s considered by many as the most versatile and Sustainable Plant on Earth.
Both industrial hemp and flax plants are regarded as “Golden Fibers”, not just for their natural golden color fibers, but more importantly, for their great properties. Their fibers are considered the strongest known to mankind next to silk.
You’ve heard it: Reduce, Recycle, and Repurpose. We put it into practice by collecting manufacturing overruns, scraps from cutting, rejected dye lots, and fabrics from different mills and sewing factories. These post production materials are sorted, shredded, then blended with new natural fibers or with recycled polyester from plastic bottles before finally being re-spun into colorful yarns for knitting and weaving. In doing so, we offer you beautiful fabrics otherwise destined for landfill. For us, it’s an exceptionally rewarding experience.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Where are your fabrics manufactured? Where are the raw materials sourced from?
A: All of our raw materials are sourced from China, with the exception of our Organic Cotton, which is also sourced from Turkey and India. All manufacturing takes place in China and India.
Q: Are your organic products certified?
A: Our organic offerings are fully certified by IMO, Control Union, OCIA, NOP or Ecocert. Copies of certificates may be requested by customers upon purchasing our product.
Q: What type of dye do you use for your fabrics?
A: The dyes used on our fabrics are all Procion low impact, fiber reactive dyes. These dyes are nontoxic, safe, and eco friendly. They require only low temperature water processing and only salt and soda ash as auxiliary agents. They yield excellent results, especially on natural fibers, in which the dyed fabrics have vibrant hues and superb colorfastness. Many of our white or off-white “natural” color fabrics have been semi-bleached using hydrogen peroxide instead of harsh chlorine. In addition, we do not use any optic brighteners in our products.
