The end of my last roll of khaki cotton canvas, marked the switch to my new organic canvas. This material is 100% certified organic, and uses low impact dyeing methods. I received a nice sized roll last week and this is now being used to line the Rucksacks and Day Packs.

I try to keep a balance in the variety of materials I offer in the shop and while my focus has always been on organic, I offer a few conventional fabrics for the purpose of providing more options to my customers. I will keep working to replace these fabrics with organic, more sustainable alternatives. While the cost is a bit higher, I always do my best to keep final costs down for my customers. I feel it’s a really worthy switch.

The organic cotton materials I use are GOTS Certified, Control Union (SKAL) inspected, fall under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, are dyed with low impact dyes…

    i love the fact that you use organic, low impact or repurposed fabrics and leathers abby. It is one of the many things that sets you apart from others.
