Nudie Jeans just got back with me, I diden't know much about Nudie, but I was realy pleased with there responce. it seams that Nudie is shooting to be 100% organic.

 

Organic cotton, soooo fluffy! it's hard to be around so much wonderfull cotton without smiling.

looking at this picture makes me smile!

 

 

"All our denim ( jeans and denimjackets) are made from organic cotton, as well as all our t-shirts including backboneprogram which also has underwear. Some of our other items such as shirts are also made of organic cotton, but we have not reached 100% yet due to low quanity of order and fabric qualities we decided to have. We hope that we will be able all our shirts as well in organic cotton in the future(Nudie)."

 

Good job nudie!

 

organic cotton is best for raw denim, because even "conventional" gm-free cotton that has pesticyds could still give unflattering rashes and the like. organic cotton is totaly safe, right off the plant you can just barry your face in it and touch it without being poisened! what an idea! cotton that dosen't poisen people!

Just contacted Gustin denim from wearGustin.com

 

I know they use some organics, which is exelent, they also have a very interesting business model which allows them to sell jeans at less then half retail.

 

I'll try to get more info...

hear is an interesting excerpt from: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/gmo-dangers/health-risks/articles-about-risks-by-jeffrey-smith/Genetically-Engineered-Foods-May-Cause-Rising-Food-Allergies-Genetically-Engineered-Corn-June-2007

 

"Bt Cotton Triggers Allergic Reactions

A 2005 report by medical investigators in India describes an ominous finding. Hundreds of agricultural workers are developing moderate or severe allergic reactions when exposed to Bt cotton. This includes those picking cotton, loading it, cleaning it, or even leaning against it. Some at a ginning factory must take antihistamines daily, in order to go to work. Reactions are only triggered with the Bt varieties.[24] Furthermore, the symptoms are virtually identical to those described by the 500 people in Vancouver and Washington who were sprayed with Bt. Only “exacerbations of asthma” were in one list and not the other (see table).

 

  Upper respiratory Eyes Skin Overall
Bt Spray Sneezing,
runny nose,
exacerbations of asthma
Watery,
red
Itching, burning, inflammation, red, swelling Fever,
some in hospital
Bt cotton Sneezing,
runny nose
Watery,
red
Itching, burning, eruptions,
red, swelling
Fever,
some in hospital

(We are unaware of similar reports in the US, where 83% of the cotton is Bt. But in the US, cotton is harvested by machine, not by hand.)

The experience of the Indian workers begs the question, “How long does the Bt-toxin stay active in the cotton(Jeffrey M. Smith)?”"

I found a realy nice Fair Indigo shirt, I love everything about it!

-Organic cotton

-Plesent colors

-Gentle dyes

-Made in USA

 

 

I think that farmers must be the people with some of the most sustainable lifes ever.... I realy like my local farmers, they are realy great people.

supporting local farmers may make little differance to Kraft or Nestle, but it makes a huge differance to local farmers!

Gustin just got back with me:

"To our Knowledge, the mills we buy from in Japan, Italy and the US do not use GM cotton(Gustin)."

 

I don't know exactly what this means. I think they are saying they don't know. Gustin dose make very nice organic jeans sometimes though....

I am also trying to contact different denim mills to find out whitch ones use natural cotton.
