Dungeness is great for upholstery, drapery, top of bed and apparel. Being a fabric made entirely of organic cotton, it has cotton's softness and matte appearance and can be washed at will.
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 the only GOTS certified spinner in the US has given up its GOTS certification, at least temporarily, because of lack of demand. Help us create demand!
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.
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.
