We started Natural Clothing Company in 2008 once we realized how much toxins in the day to day products affect our lives. We are not a big corporation, we are a small business of husband and wife team in a rural area near Seattle, WA. We have spent many years fighting for our son's health and we share what we have learned to help others.There are better alternatives for people and the planet than food and clothing usually offered. We want to reconnect people with the beauty and health of natural and organic clothing. Natural fibers are the best option for the body and the best for the planet. This way we all win.
Even our previous experience as health food store owners -- did not prepare us to hear the issues people endure with chemicals in clothing. Most of the conventional textiles are made of synthetics (oil based nylon and polyester), off-gassing potentially dangerous substances. Our skin is the body's largest organ. People experience rashes, eczema and myriad of skin problems. It may be a combination of food, clothing, lifestyle, and genes – but making a step by step improvements is always worth it. Just start with a pair of organic socks.
We respect systems that worked for humans for ages - natural fibers like hemp, linen, and especially organic cotton. These are beautiful, practical, breathe, and... never go out of style. A true investment in your health and the well-being of the planet.
We see a U-turn coming in the throwaway, unhealthy garment industry. Some say that our human community is heading in the wrong direction ecologically, climatically and economically. Our own concerns run deep but the best way to feel better is to do something about it. Even if it is little.
Ourselves, we are far from perfect - we simply try to do more right than wrong. We garden, grow as much of our food as can, we cherish the soil -- try to restore more soil than we destruct. We recycle, support community and spread the word. We are a certified member of Green America, the oldest network of green merchants. Do our efforts make big enough difference? We'll just keep trying.
We want a life without poisons for ourselves and you, the soil and animals. We think you want that too.
