FOXFIBRE®:
A REVOLUTION IN
NATURALLY COLORED CLOTHING

THE FORGOTTEN BROWN SEED

Please wait while image loadsGrowing colored cotton began thousands of years ago, around 2700 B.C., in Indo-Pakistan, Egypt, and Peru. It grew in natural colors - mocha, tan, gray and red-brown - and was prized by the hand-spinner. With the industrial revolution and its newly invented looms, short-fibered colored cotton was displaced by longer fibered white cotton. As the white variety grew in popularity, colored cotton nearly disappeared, kept alive only by the hand-spinners. That is, until Sally Fox found a forgotten bag of brown cotton seeds in 1982.

Pursuing her lifetime dream and her love for the environment, Sally Fox began to investigate the possibilities of creating commercially viable long-fibered colored cotton. Realizing the potential importance of colored cotton as an alternative to using solvent-based dyes, she was determined to succeed in producing a marketable fashion raw material. The final result was FoxFibre®, a strong long-fibered colored cotton, which can be readily woven into beautiful cloth.

This naturally colored cotton is not only free of dyes, but it is also grown organically.Known as "Certified Organic Cotton", it is grown in fields which have been free ofpesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers for at least three years.

The cloth made from organically grown cotton creates an alternative for health. This unique cloth is notonly grown and processed without chemicals, but because the color is natural, no toxicformaldehyde or solvent-based dyes come in contact with the cloth - or your skin. The fabric is created from softly textured naturally coloredcloth ranging from rich mocha to willow green. FoxFibre® - beautiful,colorful cotton apparel that's good for you and good for Mother Earth.
