Anchors Aweigh Saltwater Organic Cotton
Care Instructions: Always wash and dry fabric before sewing to ensure that it is done shrinking, this will make your final project more likely to be machine washable.
** We tear the fabric to make sure it's cut on the straight of grain, because of this, we make sure to add about an inch extra to the cut.**
"We use only 100% certified organic cotton in the manufacturing of our base cloths and eco-responsible low impact dyes for printing and dying. We work closely with mills that are committed to ethical and responsible conduct. This includes respecting the rights of all individuals, a devotion to sustained social compliance, and an accountability to the environment."
"To be considered 100% organic, our cotton has to meet a very strict approval process. The certifier has approved every step in the process from cotton to the finished goods. The process begins from the time the cotton is grown, to how the cotton is transported to the mill, how it is milled, how it is bleached using oxygen based bleach (non chlorine), how the cotton is printed using *Low Impact Dyes, and must also meet a standard of fair working conditions set by the International Labour Organization (ILO). At the end of the process a certificate is provided to ensure that all of these standards have been met and approved."
