Native Organic Cotton Bath Mats are soft, absorbent, and made to last.
Perfect for when you step out of the shower, on the swim deck, or anywhere you need a soft surface to stand on that you don't mind getting wet.
All natural and all cotton, these mats do not have the plastic, anti-slip backing found on most bath mats.
Contain no synthetic dyes, fragrances or materials.
Thick, absorbent weave sucks up water in a hurry and is very comfortable to stand on.
Woven from 100% U.S. certified organically grown, GMO free, Pima cotton, grown by American farmers on small family owned farms.
What sets these mats apart from all the others we have looked at is the fact that the color of the fabric comes directly from the cotton plant itself.
There are no dyes involved in the coloring process at all.
The cotton used literally grows in the shades you see in the accompanying photos.
How cool is that?
Made for us by the folks at Native Organic Cotton who honor the labor and creative energy of each person who has a hand in the production process.

For those of you looking to do the right thing for the planet while also spending your hard earned dollars on something unique, these towels are for you.
So why should you spend the extra money to buy organic cotton? Without trying to sound too preachy, the following statistics can be summed up in a few words - Because it's the right thing to do.
For those who want the facts -
The fabric of our lives, or the fabrication of lies?
Perhaps more than any other agricultural product, short-staple upland cotton (which accounts for 97% of USA cotton production) is the number one charlatan of our era.
Enormous sums of money have been spent on advertising and promotion to convince us that cotton is this wonderful, natural product that we all should support and purchase.
Next to corn, cotton is the largest agricultural product in the United States.
The USA grows approximately 14 million acres of cotton, accounting for nearly 20% of the world’s supply. The tremendous expansion of cotton production in the past dew decades has been accompanied by a proportionate increase in ecological damage, social deterioration and government malfeasance. Here are a few things to remember the next time you slip on one of your favorite cotton shirts -
Each year, nearly $2.6 billion worth of pesticides are applied to cotton fields worldwide, with approximately 35% of the total ending up on USA fields. In 2000, farmers in the main USA cotton growing states used over 75 million pounds of pesticides.
These figures are easily "slipped under the radar" due to the misconception that cotton is not a food, so people are relatively unconcerned by this massive chemical use.
The fact is that cotton is an important food product. In the USA alone, nearly 7 million pounds of cotton seed a year is used for cattle feed, both meat and dairy, as well as for the cottonseed oil commonly used in margarine, cookies, chips and other processed foods. As we ingest the products related to cotton in large quantities, there is a natural concern for our health and the health of future generations.
The unified cotton industry represents a $60 billion a year sector of our economy. It doesn't take much of an imagination to realize the power the National Cotton Council wields in Washington. So far, seed and chemical companies have not been held responsible for damage caused by chemical runoff, water poisoning, gene transfer and other forms of pollution, potentially saving them billions of dollars.
The U.S. government’s cotton subsidy program (established in the 1930's) creates huge economic benefits for industrial cotton growers in the form of contract payments and non-recourse government and banking loans. Who pays for all of this? You guessed it: the U.S. General Accounting Office estimates the American taxpayer pays out approximately $1.1 billion a year; and the cost is going up.
We could go on educating you about the state of the cotton industry, but since you’re online, you can easily do some research that will confirm these facts and hopefully convince you to go organic.
