Nearly all cotton is grown with petrochemical fertilizers, and sprayed with toxic chemical insecticides. The spray kills thousands of people in third world countries.
I have not read anything so blunt and horrifying regarding conventionally grown cotton. Wow.
Organiccotton.biz is the web version of Fabrics Ltd., a small family-run business out of Wales that sells really lovely and relatively inexpensive fair-trade organic cotton fabrics. They are very transparent about their suppliers and practices.
They have one of the widest ranges of organic fabrics I have seen, including handwoven solids and yarn dyes, denim, sateen, jersey knit, and a few prints.
