Eco Facts

Fabric made from organic fibers which have been processed conventionally can be – and almost always are – full of residual toxic chemicals – and its production may have released literally tons of chemicals into the environment; its carbon footprint stinks and worker safety is suspect. But the Oeko-Tex 100 certification is your assurance that Kalama contains no residual chemicals of concern and is safe for an infant to use.

The Fabric Name

Kalama, a small town in southwestern Washington State, was first settled by the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, and its name means “pretty woman.”

Uses

bedding, scarves, summer blankets, apparel
