My name is Kailey Stewart and I am the founder & designer of Cottage CLOTH.
I strive to make practical, pretty & durable Earth-friendly products that last the test of time and style.
I design everything in my home studio in Toronto, Canada. All items are sewn by myself and 2 lovely women that live in my neighbourhood.

Earth-friendly Materials & Practices
A deep respect for the natural environment informs all of my material choices and business practices.
My fabric of choice is unbleached, certified 100% cotton canvas. This is a beautiful, soft yet strong heavy canvas grown and woven in India according to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). You can feel good knowing the health of the land land, water, farmers and weavers are not compromised during the production of this textile!
To colour the fabric, I brush-dye using low-impact permanent textile inks. While this requires more effort than the typical vat dying, it ensures no more water or ink is used than is necessary for each piece. Plus, it means each item is truly one of a kind, brushstrokes and all!
I sew all items using heavy duty 100% organic unbleached cotton thread, also GOTS Certified from India.
Items are shipped with minimal packaging in 100% recycled and recyclable paper mailers. Inside your mailer, your order will come ready to gift (even if it's just for you!) in 100% recycled kraft paper, tied with a fabric remnant ribbon, and includes a small hand printed card (designs vary with the time of year. If you prefer to not have the gift wrapped please let me know at checkout.
