Viriditas Farm is located about 90 miles east from Oakland. On this farm, there are amazing things happening. The farmer, Sally Fox, breeds organic cotton. Her specialty is researching and growing naturally-colored cotton. A long time ago, cotton used to come in a myriad of beautiful shades. Now, through breeding programs determined through factory farming, only white cotton is grown. That said, like all healthy environments, diversity is best, so Sally is determined to support these heirloom varieties of cotton.

Sally saves the seeds from the plants which she feels has strong fibers and good yield. In addition to cotton breeding, she also grows over 10 acres of organic naturally-colored cotton (most commonly her signature Coyote Brown color) at Viriditas Farm.

This beautiful plain weave lawn fabric is made of organic cotton grown in New Mexico. The warp of these fabrics (and the weft of the white fabric) is made from a variety of Sea Island cotton specifically bred for the Mesilla Valley in New Mexico where it is grown. The fabric was spun, woven, and finished in Japan. 

The weft of the Green fabric is a variety developed by Sally called Sea Green, blended with Sea Island. The weft has been mordanted with iron, which sets the color with a grey cast.

The weft of the Brown fabric is her well known Coyote Brown, blended with Pima cotton.
