Why Choose Kona Cotton as your Solid Basic?
Why do quilters around the world choose Kona Cotton?
First introduced in 1984, Kona Cotton has grown through several expansions over the years and has the largest range of quilting solids available - now with an astounding 365 colors to its name! Kona is not only celebrated for its vast array of colors, but also for its ‘beefy’ hand, achieved by adding yarn to the traditional quilting cotton construction. The beefier construction of Kona adds desired structure to patchwork projects while still being a delight to sew through! Additionally, Kona is processed and tested for harmful substances and is certified to meet Oeko-Tex(R) Standard 100.
What does STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified mean?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is largely considered to be the most rigorous textile certification system. Similar to STANDARD 100, it ensures that products are free of harmful chemicals and therefore safe to use. Both OEKO-TEX® and GOTS rely on independent certification bodies and institutes to audit facilities and test products based on their criteria.
Kona Cottons Quilting Solids from Robert Kaufman are the most trusted range of solid quilting fabrics on planet earth. They are made of 100% cotton and have a nice hand feel.
What is there not to love when you have 365 colors to choose from!
