Our founding dates back to a 5th generation family cotton farm in the Northwest Texas county of Lubbock.

 

In 1991, this farm became one of the first certified organic farms in the country. Despite this achievement of bringing back pesticide­ free organic cotton to the US, almost all of the fiber from the early organic farms was bought by large corporations, and blended with conventional cotton. These companies were able to meet their “green goals”, but it left small businesses who wanted to commit to 100% organic cotton products empty handed.

 

As a result, Organic Cotton Plus became a sister company of the farm­ used to set aside organic cotton bales to create 100% certified fabrics for individuals and small businesses. We shipped these bales to be contract-spun into yarn, then woven into fabric, and finished with just a natural scour wash. We ended up with beautiful 100% organic fabric ready to ship to all the small businesses and individuals that needed it.

 

Today, through production both in the US and overseas, we have increased our line of fabrics to include knits, eco­dyed fabrics, notions, and much more. In addition, we became the first fabric retailer in the U.S. to be fully GOTS-certified­ right through packing in our warehouse.

 

From finding ways to weave and knit new organic fabrics, to sourcing notions like coconut buttons and colorful ribbons,­ crafting and manufacturing projects are what drive us every day. With low prices, maintaining a huge (and growing!) selection, and making sure we have the best certification and eco-­credentials in the industry, we couldn’t be happier coming to work each day knowing that our customers are making the world a cleaner and healthier place with each purchase.
