Since 1998, we have been focused on making high quality organic cotton textiles, using processes that minimize environmental impact, reduce energy use, and provide fair wages in safe working conditions.
100% USDA Certified Organic Long-staple Cotton
We start with premium long-staple organic cotton fibers, sustainably grown by family-owned farms. Organic farming produces fibers that are free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Sustainable farming practices prevent soil depletion, erosion, and manage water usage.
Combed Ring-spun Yarns
In preparation for spinning, the cotton is combed, to remove residual plant materials and short cotton fibers. The ring-spun process aligns the cotton fibers in parallel, then twists them inward together under tension, interlocking them into yarn. This method results in finished yarns with superior uniformity, strength, and soft hand-feel.
Non-toxic Steam-Set Dyes
We color our yarns using non-toxic, low-impact, fiber reactive, steam-set dyes that meet the stringent criteria set by USDA Organic, Organic Trade Association, and Global Organic Textile Standard. This process drastically limits the amount of water needed, and prevents harmful environmental discharge.
The art of weaving
Textile engineers, technicians, and artisans bring generations of weaving experience to the production of our cloth.
We utilize a range of equipment from vintage water-powered looms, to cutting edge high-precision looms.
After weaving is completed, our cloth is finished using processes that do not require harsh chemicals or synthetic additives. Modern wash equipment minimizes water usage.
Our goods are pre-shrunk using the Sanforizing process, which uses high-pressure rollers and steam to result in cloth that is dimensionally stable with predictable shrinkage characteristics.
Cut & Sew
Measure twice, cut once. Careful pattern layout to maximize yield, and minimizing waste.
The sewing team takes pride in constructing each piece, using techniques that result in long-lasting finished goods.
