Hand-Dyed and Hand-Quilted Organic Cotton Quilt - MUIR MOUNTAIN
STYLE: Hand-Quilted, Hand-Dyed Muir Forest Green Quilt, Fiber Art Quilt, Organic Cotton Quilt
Measures 50" x 64"
ABOUT THE QUILT:
*TOP is 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, Hand-dyed with a beautiful variety of greens. Completely unique and original and backed by my own Pressed Flower Print. We do all of the fabric dying ourselves in small batches with non-toxic dye. Variations in color will occur, are natural, and totally awesome, if you ask me! The red dashes are cut from a special Oakshott cotton, which is made in England.
*INSIDE is all natural batting that is made from 50% bamboo fibers and 50% certified organic cotton. Bamboo is a quick growing, sustainable resource that is naturally antibacterial.
*BACK is organic cotton sateen in my own Pressed Flowers print.
*Binding is hand made from hand-dyed muir green fabric. It is hand-stitched to the back of the quilt for a timeless and classic finish.
*Machine pieced, but ENTIRELY hand-quilted. See pictures for close up detail.
EASY CARE: Quilts will last for decades if properly cared for. Machine wash on a delicate cycle with gentle detergent and either hang to dry in a shady spot or tumble dry low.
WHY ORGANIC?? Cotton is used for 50% of the world's fiber needs. Unless you buy organic cotton, it is grown using tons of pesticides and fertilizers. Conventional cotton grown with toxic chemicals accounts for 25% of the world's insecticide use and 10% of the pesticide use. At least 4 of the top 9 chemicals used in treating cotton are considered by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to be highly carcinogenic too!! Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers and is, therefore, better for the land, the farmers, and for your own well-being. Please research these materials if you have any further questions about their use or environmental benefits.
