Copenhagen Print Factory Organic Fabrics – GOTS and Oeko Tex Standard

The amazing Copenhagen Print Factory offers stunning organic fabrics that are either GOTS certified or meets the requirements of the Oeko Tex Standard.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is a standard for designers requiring that cotton used in fabrics is cultivated in areas that are free of chemicals such as pesticides. This is a very high standard to meet and Copenhagen Print Factory ensures many of their fabrics are organic.

The Oeko Tex Standard ensures that throughout the various production stages of the design and creation of a fabric, these stages are run in environmentally friendly manners and that chemicals used are not harmful to humans.

We can’t wait to have more of Copenhagen Print Factory’s environmentally friendly and stunning fabrics in our shop!

Our visit to the Quilt Market 2015 in Minneapolis: Part1

This year we had a wonderful experience travelling to the United States to visit the Quilt Market in Minneapolis. The international fabric exhibition was a great chance to be inspired by an abundance of amazing designs. We had the opportunity to talk to all of our favorite suppliers like Robert Kaufman, Riley BlakeAlexander Henry and many more and selected a lot of beautiful patterns to complement the great collections we already carry in our shop. While we really love all of our brands, we also found some gorgeous new fabrics of less known exhibitors like Andover that have just become available on modes4u.

Great team. Choosing the best fabric designs for our shop is a hands on job.

We are featured in a French poetry book

Our products have appeared in quite a few books already, but never in a book like that. Our photo of the funny ant gingham Timeless Treasures fabric is the cover photo of the French poetry book Haïku-Gnoni. It features Haiku poems, which is a short form of Japanese poetry, in French language. The author Mario Fulchignoni found the picture on our website and thought it would be a good title picture. Thanks for featuring our photo and congratulations on the publishing of the book.
