All Fabrics are Certified Organic.
The dye used is fabric reactive dyeing processing, not acids. Fiber-reactive shades are classified as low-impact because they meet the requirements of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, an international textile certification program. To meet this standard, low-impact dyes cannot contain toxic substances, must have an absorption rate in which 70% or more of the dye is absorbed by the fabric and require relatively little rinse water. The only chemicals required, besides the dyes, are Table Salt (sodium chloride) and Washing Soda(sodium bicarbonate, aka Soda Ash).

Another benefit is that fiber-reactive dyes develop color inside the fiber, rather than on the surface, thereby improving light-fastness and wash-fastness. No dyes available to home- or studio-dyer are more permanent. They bond with fabric on a molecular level, creating colorfast and long-lasting shades. Fabrics are rinsed multiple times but just to be cautious, please prewash fabric alone or with like colors with initial washings
