Organic Cotton Prints

We have a small group of new pieces in our Organic section at Treadle.

Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful synthetic pesticides, and is printed with low-impact dyes to reduce the ecological footprint of the manufacturing process.  The conventional cotton industry uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop.  

However, it's hard to go completely green unless you have a good alternative to conventional fabrics, so it's nice to see such cute prints available in organic.
