If we can help changing the world, by changing our clothes, we are supposed to search for clothes made with Organic Fibers.

Which is the advantage we obtain using Organic Fibers? And what an Organic Fiber actually is?

Organic Fiber is one that has been grown in a special way. It is a way to qualify for organic certification by an accredited certification organization, (it usually is a department of your country's government).

To gain organic certification, the fiber (or animal producing it) must have been grown or raised without the use of toxic insecticides, fungicides or herbicides.

That is a farm must have been inspected by an accredited certification organization using strict national and international standards. This organization gives such a certification to farmers who raise organic fiber following standards that nurture the soil or animal from which it comes and not using toxic insecticides, herbicides or fungicides.

Being responsible consumers we can contribute to the eco-friendly consciousness, at the same time we choose a great way to live healthier, more sustainably, and more comfortably, buying organic products made with organic fibers. Changing our clothes fashion.

A very important aspect of this compromise is to understand that it's not just where the products we usually use come from that matters - it's where they're going.

I like cotton very much, but let me tell you I didn't feel quite well when I was told conventional cotton is one of the most environmentally unfriendly crops grown anywhere in the world.

I found in Internet that almost one-half of the agricultural herbicides and pesticides used on U.S. crops are applied to industrial cotton. If all the cotton produced in the world were grown organically, the use of insecticides could be reduced by 25 percent!

I felt better when I understood that today I have a choice.

Grown from a seed, cotton can be a sustainable and organically grown crop. Organic cotton is now available in many colorful new designs using ecosafe dyes and even color grown cotton.

Organic cotton has the same fiber strength, length, and other properties as conventional cotton, but without all the harmful chemicals. It is grown and dyed using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.

Fashion designers all over the world are becoming more conscious about these issues and they are using organic fibers in their creations, incorporating new organic style fashion.
