I recently met a women who designs and manufactures a beautiful and high quality collection of childrens clothing called: "Nanny Pickle".
The fabric they use is a combination of organic cotton grown free of pesticides and fertilisers and bamboo which is both 100% biodegradable and naturally regenerative. You read it right! A beautiful, soft fabric blend made with bamboo.
BTW...it's fun to peek at this inventive and creative website featuring "Nanny Pickle" herself.... http://www.nannypickle.com.au/
