Hand-Dyed Organic Cotton Quilt - LEMOYNE STAR
STYLE: Organic cotton quilt, One of a kind, Ready to ship. Backed with Faux Fur which is not organic, but super cuddly and soft.
ABOUT THE QUILT:
**TOP is 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, Hand-dyed with a beautiful variety of colors ranging from indigo blue to raspberry. Completely unique and original and backed with a polyester faux fur. 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!
**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.
**Binding is machine stitched to the quilt as shown in the pictures and wraps around the front of the quilt for an artistic finish.
**Machine pieced and hand quilted as well as machine 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.
