Earth Day Giveaway!

To celebrate Earth Day, Jan of the wonderful label Daisy Janie asked us to take part in a blog hop giveaway! Hooray!!

(entries are now closed)

While giveaways are great and all, there is a serous message behind this one, and it's one I'm sure we've all heard before, but I'm going to say it anyway.

We simply cannot continue on the path of throw away consumerism.

In our little corner of the industry, we want to promote the use of organic fabrics. In particular, those that are sustainable & Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) Certified.

The textile industry uses 25% of the worlds pesticides. 25%!! I can't even fathom how much poison that is, in litres.

The organic textile industry has very specific Standards regarding the use of toxins for something to be classed as organic, and has a hugely positive flow on to the (more often than not 3rd world) communities that grow & produce them. For example, the fields of organic cotton need to be rotated with other crops every few years, which also must be organic. This often means that the communities rotate the cotton with food crops, which means easy access to good quality, organic produce to be eaten and also sold. This, combined with the lack of toxic pesticides, means a hugely increase level of health for the people living around & working the cotton crops. It leads to better local economies, education & working conditions.

(The wonderful Kristen Doran had something to add! She says: I love the eco-friendly side of GOTS certified. But what I love even MORE about GOTS fabrics is the social criteria enforced. There is no forced or bonded labour in these companies. Child labour is not used and working conditions are clean. Working hours do not exceed 48 hours. I could go on... hurray for cotton manufacturers getting on board and looking after the workers. )

If we have to buy, then we must buy organic. It's the least we can do.

Please visit this site for more detailed & (much more) thoroughly researched information. No, no, I insist. Off you go.

We'll wait here...

...Ok, I know you didn't read it but let's continue, if you promise to read it tonight for homework.

On to the giveaway!

Together with the 11 other wonderful people/businesses below, we are giving away something lovely! So hop on over to everyone's blogs to enter their giveaways!! :)

Hurray for textile designers using GOTS fabrics.

QuiltyGoodness said...

Re-cycled bags would be cool--like bags made from old jeans, discarded clothing, etc.

julia said...

Maybe some bamboo would be nice, or printed knits. I'd love to have some of your prints to make drapey tops with.

Ammie said...

I love organic cotton in fabric and yarns--yeah, I know you don't do yarns ;)--and would love to see more stylish prints. Hmmm. A knitting needle tote would be fun!

Tracy said...

Wow, just stick to fabric. This is the first time I have seen yours and the birds and gingko--I just love them. I am wiping drool from myself over that headboard in grey!!

Malinda Lloyd said...

more finished goods or just more colors :)

animegirlie_at_g_mail_dot_com

Patty said...

I like to have reusable tote bags. I don't know how you package your fabrics for shipping, but I know some places use way more packaging than necessary.

Penny said...

Ooh lovely! Printed tape. Like that linen tape stuff. Is that what it's called? Ribbony looking?

Elizabeth said...

Pre-made binding from organic fabric that coordinates with the existing fabric lines. Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway!

kathi said...

Oh, I'd love an organic fabric that is a clean design of 'beachy' bird silhouttes.

BOB & MABEL said...

Definately jersey with some of your great designs.

alison said...

I'd like to see lighter weight oragnic cottons

Honeybug said...

Organic ribbons, ric rac and bias binding that coordinates with your stunning fabrics. Oh and anything in teal - just love that colour!

Nana56 said...

More lovely fabric. Yay! My daughter told me about your site a long time ago, so it's not new to me. She does have very good taste. Finished products are always a nice thing to have. Like table runners or valances.

Teresa

Infodetective said...

Continue to offer more organic fabric cottons. I would also appreciate organic batting and ready made tote bags.

Kari said...

Organic cotton and linen, more and more of it with your great prints on it. :) Ok, that isn't such a new idea since that is what you are doing but it is my favorite. Canvas or sateen would be fun to create with.

Lisa said...

Perhaps some patterns, and notions.
But love the fabric combos, so if you just focus on that, that's wonderful too.

Heather said...

Definitely some totes! (:

Mary said...

Lol - Melbourne time here is Eastern Standard Time (that's Melbourne, Florida). I am interested in modern prints and modern juvenile prints in organic cotton, linen, or silk. Perfect for use in clothing for those of us living in a tropical climate.

Erin Mercer said...

I would love to see some ethical "peace" silks!

kim at allconsuming said...

Well as a novice quilter and pre-novice sewer, more fabrics, more patterns, more colours! BRING IT!

beth said...

Lovely fabrics adn heartfelt praide for your work!!

beth said...

yikes I meant praise!

Bec Clarke said...

Ohh how can you do anything better, maybe something a little lighter weight for quilters

Express said...

My first thought was linen and my next would be silk!
Very pretty designs! I am glad to have found you!

emma said...

i really admire you for following the sustainable ethic all the way through, especially in the textile industry, people like you are doing the hard work for us all to benefit from mainstream textiles becoming more sustainable in the future... thanks. Maybe some more patterns for sale?

Jeanie said...

Fabrics offered in different fabric weights....heavy for upholstery.....lighter for quilting. For ready-made, I always like a cheerful market bag or apron.
Thanks for the give-a-way!

camelama said...

I'd love to have silk blends, for dressier options. But I loves me the organic cotton, don't ever stop making fun prints on that!

Katie B. said...

Already love what you have...I'd suggest adding more prints, like something that is teal colored.

badlandsquilts said...

Interlock knit would be awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

AZ in August said...

I love the ivory pattern with the stripes. I write a wedding blog and am making a conscious effort to make my wedding eco-friendly and trying to reduce our carbon footprint.

P.S. My wedding is where I would use these fabrics. That fabric would make excellent hair flowers.

Stitchybritt said...

Melanie said...

Gloria said...

I am new to your shop, but the fabrics are so beautiful that I can't imagine you are having issue with those. I always like to see a small amount of local love in a shop. Like they may have a local man who makes embroidery hoops or something of that nature.

Michelle said...

Love your designs. The birds is my favorite! I'd love to see (is it possible?!) coated cottons - like oilcloth -- great for making re-usable totes, tablecloths, etc.

Michelle said...

Some pretty organic fabric trims (perhaps made from your leftover cut-offs) that could be used to glam up our homeware projects. Or perhaps some plastic bag holders to stuff supermarket bags into for future reuse. Love your cheerful Tamarillo collection - it's stunning!

Brenis said...

Ohh my gosh, just discovered you through this earth day giveaway!! Spotted it on fabricworm's blog, and am having heart palpitations as I didn't know all this awesome fabric was even available!! Well i know where i will be doing my shopping from now on! LOL!! I LOVE your line.. the houses, the grapefruit, the modern blocks... sigh... would love to see some organic binding, and tapes.. and make this wonderful fabric more widely known and available! I know soo many people that would jump at the chance to switch to the organic cottons and linens!!

Liam's Mummy said...

Organic knits. Especially ones suitable for boys.

Organic knits. Especially ones suitable for boys.

Crystal Hendrix said...

I am not sure what i would like to see. I have never used organic material. I have a "small" background in farming and soil and I haven't really thought too "well" about organic and whatnot, but as I read more I am more inclined to research more about it. It's nice to keep an open mind and to learn more. :D Thanks for the opprotunity.

Linda said...

I am comparatively new to organics. I don't know of anything new I would like to see, but I love the ones I see today on your blog!

Keep up the good work! We need more people like you two.

Fabiana Mattos said...

I'd like to see more sewing patterns or kits, to use more than one prints.

I think that a mix of those Tamarillo collection prints would be perfect!

Mirjam said...

Thanks for the organic 'lecture', it can not be repeated often enough. And thanks for taking part in this great Earth Day intiative.

Just keep up the good work with your fine prints, they're lovely. You could think about broadening the collection with some more leightweight fabric. Personally I would love some matching linen tape or binding, not always easy to match your colours. But hey, I'm picky. (therefore still no gingko cushions, I'm waiting for that tape...)

cheers!

Sequana said...

I'm not reading any of the others, in case my idea is already here. *S*

I'm not sure how difficult it is to add a vinyl coating to at least one run of your beautiful fabric. It would be so nice to be able to make projects from something that could be cleaned up......like a tablecloth, or some project bags.

Happy Earth Day!
