They are not only eco friendly but also soft on the body. Health concerns have raised an unprecedented demand for such apparels. The important point note here is that not only the fibers but also the dyes used in the process are eco friendly. Organic clothing has gained popularity in countries like US, Japan, Britain and EU. Turkey, Tanzania, India, China, Egypt and the US are leading producers of this type of clothing, the world over. The cultivation of organic cotton has zoomed in the last few years.

These types of clothing are either made from hemp, organic cotton or bamboo. Hemp clothing is a superior form of clothing to others since hemp has the ability to grow anywhere. Not only that hemp also requires little water has a quick to grow but also has a short cycle of harvest and doesn’t harms the top soil. Therefore, one can grow any other plant on the soil immediately after he has cultivated hemp; the soils in this case would not require any rejuvenation.
Organic cotton clothing also has come to be a great substitute to the normal cotton clothing. Organic cotton has the ability to produce far great superior products than the usual cotton. The best part of this kind of clothing is that the manufacturers has to get a certificate that his clothing has been grown in fields that has been untouched by pesticides or chemicals for three consecutive years. Since the other kind of cotton uses close to 25% of world’s pesticides, it does make great sense to cultivate organic cotton.
