Yet again, I found something pretty cool to talk about while reading for one of my classes. In my second to last blog post, I talked about the book, The Ecology of Commerce, and the sustainable businesses it talks about. Well this company, Natural Cotton Color based in Europe, uses organic cotton that has its own natural color. These natural colors consist of greens, beiges, and browns.
The Chinese have been perfecting this process of nature cross breeding over the last 20 years. The plants are naturally resistant to pests, so there's no need for pesticides or other chemicals. The fabric is 100% natural. There are no chemicals, no dyes, it's eco-friendly, and people friendly. Together the Chinese and NCC are the only manufacturers of this type of cotton.
In their Milton Keynes showroom, they have over 200 different fabrics that range from jersey knit, woven, corduroy, and pique. They have eight fabric designers and technologists. Currently they are working on The Perfect Start collection (baby collection) and the Disney Loved by Nature collection.
Right now they are producing baby clothes with this natural cotton as their newest collection. They say that it is the best for sensitive skin and that it is like a second skin. They also have fashionable clothing for adults including underwear. Besides clothing, they offer towels, linens, and nursery bedding.
Here above is one gift set for the baby clothes.
For the fashion forward,
Above are some of the Nature Cotton Color designs for the Fall/ Winter Collection of 2011.
On their website, they do have available for everyone to see that they are 100% natural and that they sustainable producers of this natural cotton.
