I've only recently heard of colour grown cotton. It is such a great thing, and I can't believe I haven't heard of it before.
For anyone, like me, who doesn't know what it is here's a brief description.
It was originally used for thousands of years by native american indians to create different colours without the need for dying. Cotton plants can be found in a variety of different colours such as: white, tan, green, yellow, red, and brown. These are naturally occuring colours that cotton grows as, however, because the cotton fibres didn't suit commercial textile machines, white cotton has been the only one used.
Thankfully, it is being used again, which is wonderful news for people with allergies and sensitivities to dyes.
We now stock a variety of organic colour grown cotton baby items, baby blankets, t-shirts and more. Hooray for colour grown cotton!
