We do our best to color-match each photo to the fabric, however, device displays vary greatly in quality, warmth, and vibrancy. We cannot guarantee what you see here will be an exact match to the color of the fabric when it arrives.
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.
"Birch Organic Fabrics was created in an effort to provide an environmentally friendly cotton alternative to the quilting and crafting community. We at Birch Fabrics believe that the sustainability of our planet begins with consciousness, and can be successful with real action. That’s why our fabric is produced from 100% organic cotton and printed with low impact dye. Birch Fabrics is devoted to the highest quality of organic cotton fabrics in the marketplace, with a strong yet whimsical design perspective.
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.
*Low impact dyes do not contain toxic chemicals or mordants, require less rinsing and have a high absorption rate. High absorption rates and a decreased use of rinse water create less wastewater and runoff."
