For anyone dismayed at the severe lack of organic and fairtrade materials available in Ireland, you'll be glad to hear that Leaf Living now stocks about 20 different organic and fair trade cotton fabrics. They also sell fabric for interiors and upholstery by the meter. They are currently updating their website to include all the fabrics they hold in stock. If you can't wait, just give them a call.
They also sell Fashion Kits. A Fashion Kit includes all the materials you need to make the particular item, for example a dress or blouse; sizes are pre-traced and range from size 10 to size 16, come with a bobbin of matching thread and full instructions on how to make your chosen garment. For those wanting to have a go at dress-making, this is a good practice kit!
"Leaf Living is a sustainable lifestyle company". They also sell a range of other textile products, eg, fashion, bed-linen, etc, that are fairtrade and organic.
