Looking for organic and ethical quilting cotton?

Two things to consider when searching for organic, ethical, and sustainable fabric are base materials and dyes/additives. Thankfully there are regulating bodies out there doing most of the work for you. The type of certification a company holds says a lot about their product and their commitment to being environmental and ethical. If you can’t easy find the certification for something listed at ‘organic’ or ‘sustainable,’ be leery. I have listed next to each link the certifications they hold:
