Harmony Art and Organic Cotton Plus achieve GOTS certification
February 13, 2012,
Organic Cotton Plus, based in Ridgefield, Conn., was acquired in 2010 by Fox-Rich Textiles, Haromny Art's fabric supplier. In 2005, Harmony Art shifted its focus to designing only for organically grown cotton. The two companies supply hundreds of companies in North America and overseas.
"We have sourced and designed high-quality, attractive GOTS-certified fabric since it became available in 2007," said Harmony Susalla, Harmony Art owner/designer. "Now that we're certified, we have paved the way for our end-product manufacturers to become GOTS certified and complete the supply chain - providing consumers with a field-to-fashion organic product."
Linda Hayes, manager of Organic Cotton Plus, said: " What is also exciting is that the interest in GOTS-certified fabrics has increased so much, we plan to increase the breadth of our organic fabric offerings 50% in 2012."
