I have this wonderful memory from the time I was growing up in a smaller town of Northern India. I used to pick cotton balls from a cotton tree near our home and take them to my mother. She used them to make her oil lamps (Diya). Evidently I had no idea about the importance of Organic Cotton at that time and I was not even aware that there was such a thing. Cotton was cotton for us, one that came from the tree & we used that for oil lamps and decoration, and the other came from the chemist shop for first aid.

The world of Cotton intrigues me. When I ran week-end market stalls last year, I heard from ladies that they prefer Indian Cotton over other countries. I started learning more about cotton. Did you know that India is the largest producer of Organic Cotton in the world followed by USA!

 

Organic Cotton is grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides or genetically modified seeds. While we are becoming more and more conscious about eating organic food, the awareness of Organic Cotton is not so common or perhaps we just don’t care about what we wear. Research shows that the most common Organic Cotton clothes are baby clothes. That sounds logical to me. I would want my baby to wear something free of chemicals for sure. I found this site quite informative about Organic Cotton: http://www.organiccotton.org/oc/Organic-cotton/Organic-cotton.php

 

Last month I came across Anokhi in India while searching for new suppliers. Anokhi is quite well known for Fair Trade Organic Cotton clothes in USA and Europe. They use vegetable dyes on their cotton to keep the fabric completely natural. Interestingly majority of their colours revolve around shades of blue and green because of the use of indigo plants of the Indigofera family.

I decided to bring in some Organic Cotton clothes from Anokhi for our Colours in You customers in Australia. I was amazed to see how soft these clothes are and the stitching is done with such perfection. I hope this is the beginning of a new journey ......Anu
