Ohganix® Natural and Organic Fabrics
The naturally smooth fibers in our fabrics feel like silk on the skin! Our sustainable fibers are breathable, irritation free, and favorable for sensitive skin!
Although there are many natural fibers that can be turned into textiles, we mainly choose to carry products made with Organic Cotton or Hemp fibers. These fibers are grown naturally without the use of harmful pesticides and the manufacturing process to turn the fibers into fabric is not chemically invasive, as it can be with materials made with bamboo and other plant-based fibers.
Organic Cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In addition, federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming. All cotton sold as organic in the United States must meet strict federal regulations covering how the cotton is grown. – Organic Trade Association
Hemp is naturally one of the most ecologically friendly fabrics and also the oldest, dating back to approximately 8,000 BC. Hemp is one of the strongest and most durable natural textile fibers; having a much longer lifespan than other fabrics. This fabric launders easily, handles extreme temperatures well and is a machine washable linen. Hemp dries extremely quickly when air dried or is easily tumble-dried. With each wash, Hemp continually reveals new surfaces and becomes softer w/ each use. Hemp fabric rapidly absorbs moisture, which accounts for its coolness and comfort and has natural anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.
Ohganix Products – Free of heavy metals and harmful chemicals
*Some companies use chemical agents in the manufacture process of turning organic fibers into textile goods. These chemicals affect the purity of the fibers and render the goods as non-organic. We insure our products have been manufactured following all Global Organic Trade Standards which follow the organic standards from seed to sewn garment.
*All of our garments contain organic material. Although the fabric may not be “certified” organic, the natural fibers used have been grown without pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful chemicals. The fibers are also not processed using bleach, heavy metals, and toxic dyes to preserve the organic nature of the fibers.
*Hemp is a crop that is naturally organic, as it is cultivated on land where it grows unaffected without the use of artificial agents. The sustainable nature of how this crop is cultivated is the reason why most hemp fibers do not go through the process of being certified organic because we already know that the crop has been grown following organic standards.
