Customer Questions and Answers


I was so excited to see that you now offer cotton and it seemed to have a high standard of farming practices until I read that its probably or could be gmo cotton. This is very sad, as it sort of kills the idea of natural and clean. So it has pesticides I suspect? thank you

I ordered this because it was so pretty and I was curious. It's just beautiful and so soft and smooth. I used it for a "tummy time'" throw (no more blankets in the crib). I'm doing some big stitch quilting on it and the needle slides so easily through this fabric. Very happy. I'll order again in the future!

Snowball pattern with larger squares to feature this adorable print!

I chose two Percale prints for my projects - the Gingham and the Gentle Safari both in white/pink. The Gingham is a sweet 1/8" check while the Gentle Safari features gorgeous watercolor-style painted pink elephants and flamingoes parading amongst bluish-grey monkeys, zebras, and giraffes. As these cottons are Percale, they have a subtle sheen on the face which lends both a luxurious look and a cool, soft hand-feel. I was also thrilled to learn that these fabrics are certified by Oeko-Tex and the Better Cotton Initiative. I've always been a sustainability-focused and eco-conscious maker with an affinity for natural fabrics, but especially now as a new mom, I try my best to clothe (and make clothes for) my baby in natural fabrics that I know are made with high production standards - meaning toxic chemicals aren't used and there's accountability in environmental footprint.
