Organic cotton is very hard to come by. The scarcity has led some to call it ‘white gold’ because a good supply can be very valuable. To others the scarcity is a worry, mainly because if demand continues to outstrip supply, the demand may well begin to dry up.
More and more companies are beginning to convert to Organic cotton in small percentages. Manufacturers like Nike and Marks and Spencer among others have actually led the way in this.
Out front there have always been the small guys of course.
If you are interested in sourcing Organic cotton for your clothing range, or for a smaller project, then get in touch, and I can pass on some suggestions. For big business, I would suggest, as a first port of call, organic exchange, which is very good indeed.
For more info on Organic cotton generally, (and why I believe – along with others that it is very much part of the future of the garment industry) please see articles linked to the tag cotton in the sidebar.
