A sheer, long fiber linen plain weave fabric. Kalama is a whisper weight linen. It looks diaphanous but Kalama is very strong! Stunning for drapery (especially romantic for your canopy bed), scarves, summer blankets, and apparel.
Fabric made from organic fibers which have been processed conventionally can be — and almost always are — full of residual toxic chemicals. 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.
Kalama, a small town in southwestern Washington State, was first settled by the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, and its name means "pretty woman."
Pre-shrunk for any temperature washing. Linen loves to be washed and gets softer with washing.
