The Exciting Hues Of The Colour Grown Cotton Plant
Let’s talk colour. When it comes to coloured fibres, there’s a technique that has been gaining a lot of attention lately. I’m talking about Colour Grown Cotton.
Don’t be surprised if you begin to see the characteristic tan, green and browns being used in more and more innovative ways. This organic and cruelty-free textile is quickly rising in popularity due to its beauty, durability and pronounced eco-benefits.
While this textile has only recently resurfaced in terms of mainstream trends and fashions, it has actually been around for thousands of years. The Organic Consumers Association traces colour grown cotton back at least 4300 years. It probably originated in the Americas, more specifically in the region of the Andes.
