A Bit of My Story:
If I was buying organically grown food for my family, why was I buying toxic clothing? What we wear may not seem as important as what we eat, but our skin is not a solid barrier protecting us from everything we come into contact with. Our skin lives and breathes and can also absorb toxins.
For me and many others, it is more than an issue of personal and family health. Organic cotton clothing is an important environmental and social issue as well. Cotton grown the conventional way pollutes the air, water and soil. Anyone living on or near these farms are also exposed. Not just people, but animals, insects and birds. Another aspect of the clothing industry that concerns many of us is the question of fair labor practices. I have collected informed statements from my suppliers regarding this human rights issue which you can read by following this link. Learn about our suppliers
How we live and how we spend our money always carries a social and environmental impact, whether we choose to take notice of it or not. I believe choosing organic cotton clothing and other organic cotton products, hemp clothing and accessories, and other natural products has a positive impact on all these levels. So in 1997, with the help of my family, I started Kasper Organics (my maiden name is Kasper) with the goal of making organic cotton clothing and hemp products available at affordable prices. I focus on the basic items people need and use most. And I try to be responsive to my customer's needs. Especially those who are chemically sensitive (mcs). Our customers with chemical sensitivities often find it helpful to wear our organic cotton and organic hemp clothing. And I will honor special packaging needs as far as I can.
