Subject: organic cotton
I saw your response to Roberto on organic cotton and wanted to let you know
of the Organic Trade Association's new Organic Fiber Directory which focuses
primarily on organic cotton contacts. I have sent ordering information to
Roberto and attached it below. For some reason, when I have sent the
information to SANET, it bounces back, so if you could do me a favor and
forward it to SANET for wider viewing, I would be grateful.
Thank you very much and please be in touch with me if you have questions on
organic fibers. We have been keeping acreage data and have an extensive
network of contacts in this "growing" sector!
OTA's Fiber Council
Organic Trade Association’s Organic Fiber Directory
The Organic Trade Association (OTA) is publishing the Organic Fiber
Directory as a comprehensive resource for locating sources of, and products
containing, organic fiber.
An updated and expanded edition of OTA’s Organic Cotton Directory published
in 1998, the Organic Fiber Directory lists companies handling organic
cotton, flax, hemp, and wool. This latest directory contains listings and
contact information for organic fiber growers, brokers, mills,
manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. As such, the specialized directory
is seen as a vital networking tool for the growing organic fiber industry,
and complements The Organic Pages: North American Resource Directory also
published by OTA.
The more than 150 companies listed in the Organic Fiber Directory offer a
complete range of organic fiber products for men, women, and children,
including apparel, sportswear, undergarments, sleep wear, personal care
items, diapers, bed and bath linens, toys, and more.
The apparel and textile industries’ use of organic cotton continues to
stimulate demand for organic cotton both in the United States and overseas.
In 1999, U.S. farmers planted approximately 16,413 acres of organic cotton—a
75 percent increase over 1998. In addition, organic cotton was grown in
seven of the 17 states where conventional cotton is grown.
Non-OTA members can order a copy of the Organic Fiber Directory for US $25
plus $3 shipping and handling (Massachusetts residents must add $1.25 sales
tax). The OTA member price is US $15, plus $3 shipping and handling
(Massachusetts residents add $0.75 sales tax). Those outside the United
States and Canada must pay international shipping and handling costs of $6
Orders can be placed by phone (413-774-7511, ext. 12), fax (413-774-6432),

web site (www.ota.com).
The Organic Trade Association is the business association representing the
organic agriculture industry in North America. Its more than 1,100 members
include growers, shippers, processors, certifiers, farmers' associations,
distributors, importers, exporters, consultants, retailers and others.
Founded in 1985, OTA encourages global sustainability through promoting and
protecting the growth of diverse organic trade. The directory was a project
of OTA’s Fiber Council (OFC), a sector group focusing on organic fiber. OFC
includes organic farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and others
involved in the organic fiber industry.
