The Organic Collection is back!

I’m happy to announce that The Tragic Whale Organic is making it’s way back into the shop! There’s just a few bags to choose from right now- large makeup bags and a couple of pencil cases- but now that I’ve dug out my organic cotton thread I’m basically unstoppable.

I make all the Organic Collection bags using GOTS certified organic cotton fabric AND thread. More organic materials means lower impact on the environment.

Here’s a couple of the new bags:

Tragic Whale Organic hits the shop :)

Announcing  the new Organic Section!

I started featuring organic fabric a couple months ago, but I didn’t feel comfortable advertising the bags as organic because they only had one little piece on them. After a lot of thought, I decided to make them as organic as possible. So these bags are organic cotton inside, organic cotton outside, and organic thread! (More on that thread later. We have a love / hate relationship). I still use plastic zippers and I still use synthetic interfacing.

While I still have partially-organic bags in the regular shop sections, the all-organic bags are in their own section. I know this might make it harder to search for specific items, it’s easier to  find the organic-specific items.

What makes this fabric organic? I had no idea and had to do a lot of reading. The cotton I’m using is GOTS certified organic, which is the Global Organic Textile Standard. Basically there are all these rules about pesticides and low-environmental impact processes and other science stuff. You can read more about it here. All I really know is it’s less harmful to the planet. And I think that’s cool.

There aren’t too many things in there yet (I only bought one spool of thread), but we’ll see how it turns out :)
