Marlee Organic Cotton Dog Bandana - Pastel
Marlee, an Aboriginal word for elder tree, is an ancient plant steeped in mystery and superstition. With its thick clusters of tiny white flowers and dark blackberries, it's thought to ward off evil and give protection from witches. In some traditions, the tree was regarded as a gift from the Earth Mother who lived within it.

Did you know, conventionally grown (non-organic) cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world? It is estimated that each year cotton producers use as much as 25 percent of the world’s insecticides and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticides; an enormous amount for just one crop!
Every day we feel the harmful effects of non-organic cottons and fabrics. These carcinogens poison farmers all over the world, as well as animals and wildlife when it seeps into the earth, lakes, rivers and waterways.
Organic cotton farming uses natural methods of pest reduction and fertilisation to make the crops grow. It's what Mother Nature intended. Traditionally, cotton fabric is processed using harsh chemicals - bleaches and finishers. These residues stays in the fabric wash after wash, and can get transferred to skin. It's often dyed with inks that contain traces of formaldehyde, heavy metals and other nasties. Our organic cotton is GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard) certified, meaning the fabric has been processed using the gentlest methods - from when it's picked to eco-friendly and water-based inks that are soft on skin. Even people and pets with chemical sensitivity and allergies can wear organic cotton safely.
Hand wash and hang to dry away from direct sunlight. We recommend to use an environmentally friendly laundry detergent or gentle soap. Alternatively, spot clean with a stain remover.
Although very durable, our accessories are not meant for rough wear. To prolong the life of your item, please remove before play dates and spot clean only. Never leave your furry friend unattended wearing a bandana, bow tie or any other accessory.
