The Organic Trade Association (OTA) is publishing the Organic Fiber Directory as a comprehensive resource for locating sources of, and products containing, organic fiber.
An updated and expanded edition of OTA’s Organic Cotton Directory published in 1998, the Organic Fiber Directory lists companies handling organic cotton, flax, hemp, and wool. This latest directory contains listings and contact information for organic fiber growers, brokers, mills, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers.
The more than 150 companies listed in the Organic Fiber Directory offer a range of organic fiber products for men, women, and children, including apparel, sportswear, undergarments, sleep wear, personal care items, diapers, bed and bath linens, toys, and more.
The apparel and textile industries’ use of organic cotton continues to stimulate demand for organic cotton both in the United States and overseas. In 1999, U.S. farmers planted approximately 16,413 acres of organic cotton—a 75 percent increase over 1998.
Non-OTA members can order a copy of the Organic Fiber Directory for US $25 plus $3 shipping and handling (Massachusetts residents must add $1.25 sales tax). The OTA member price is US $15, plus $3 shipping and handling (Massachusetts residents add $0.75 sales tax). Those outside the United States and Canada must pay international shipping and handling costs of $6 per directory.
