Dungeness is a lively twill that is great for upholstery, or for anything else you'd like to use it for. Made entirely of organic cotton, it has cotton's softness and matte appearance and can be washed at will. A happy blend of softness, safety and security for your family. The fabric is GOTS certified through weaving.
Made from American-grown organic cotton, the fabric was woven at the first (and still only) mill in the United States that produces fabrics to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our next production run of Dungeness may not be an All American made product because this one and only GOTS certified mill in the US has given up its expensive GOTS certification due to lack of demand. Help us create demand! Dungeness is an organic FABRIC, not just a fabric made of organic fibers. Learn what that means.
The Fabric Name
We named this fabric after the crab, because, besides loving its sweet meat (and feeling guiltless about eating it because it's a “Best Choice" according to Seafood Watch published by the Monterey Bay Aquarium), the Dungeness crab (Metcarcinus magister), is native to North America.

* A discussion of what the abrasion ratings mean.
The fabric is GOTS certified through weaving, meaning that all GOTS requirements as to chemical use, water treatment are followed:
SAFETY: No known or suspected toxic chemicals have been used in the manufacture of the fabric, so you won't find them residual in the fabric you are using.
And like all Two Sisters fabrics, Dungeness has no flame retardant or stain repellant finishes, no finish of any kind.
