Deerfield Designs − Organic Clothing
from T Shirts to Baby Clothes
for the Eco Friendly
Organic Clothing, Custom Screen Printing and Printed T-Shirts
When people first started wearing clothes they chose what was handy like
leaves, the original organic clothing. Over the years, we humans have managed to
create clothes out of both natural and synthetic materials but at a cost to the
environment. Deerfield Designs says let´s go back to our roots with eco friendly
Conventional cotton farming requires 1/3 pounds of chemical fertilizer to produce the fabric for one T-shirt. Yes, just one shirt! It´s also responsible for 25% of global insecticide in use and over 10% of global pesticide in use. Five of the top nine pesticides used on cotton in the United States are known carcinogens, substances that can cause cancer. This is not what we want to put on our bodies!
Deerfield Designs, which started in 1978 selling Vermont- themed apparel to local retailers, joined the green revolution in 2005. Now we make organic t shirts, polos, hats, tote bags, and even organic baby clothes. Not only do we use organic cotton, we also use compostable inks, free from toxic chemicals like PVC, Phalate, and heavy metals. That way, when your organic t shirt finally wears out, the ink will compost safely into the dirt. Our entire process is designed to make our line of eco friendly clothing and accessories as gentle to the earth as possible. Old silk screens are made ”new” by using safe, biodegradable solvents to remove the old emulsion and prepare the screen for new artwork. We reuse and recycle boxes and encourage our customers to do the same. We clean our equipment with safe, biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning agents, and we emphasize communication via email and our website to reduce deforestation.
While we have moved beyond the days of fig leaves and vines for clothes, Deerfield Designs wants you to join the green revolution with our organic clothing and accessories.
