Are you looking to simplify your life? To purify your home and wardrobe? Are you concerned about chemicals in conventional clothing, bedding, bags, and footwear? Are you a supporter of organic foods and starting to wonder if your clothes should be organically grown, too? Are you fed up that so many products are made in sweatshops? So are we! Are you intrigued by the possibilities of hemp and linen? Have you got MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities), TILT (Toxicant-induced loss of tolerance), skin allergies, or undergone radiation or chemotherapy and need hypo-allergenic clothing & bedding? You've come to the right place!
We are a small manufacturer of 1,000 unique organic cotton, linen, & hemp clothing, footwear, bed, bath, kitchen, ropes, fabrics, twines, braided cords, webbing, paper, bodycare products and more. Since 1999, our focus has been purity and environmental sustainability: we grow, weave, knit, and sew in-house for true end-to-end accountability. Our sweatshop-free organic products are made in USA, Canada, and our atelier in Europe, where 50 artisans and staff hand-craft each eco-friendly garment and pair of shoes with dedication and pride. It's a labor-intensive creation process, utilizing Old-World heritage methods (we make use of modern equipment, too, of course). YES! We ship worldwide.
We make our organic cotton, linen, and hemp products as pure as possible so that people with chemical sensitivities and aversion to toxins can live life without worrying about contamination (yay!). We work only with the purest organic natural fibers for your peace of mind: organic cotton, linen, hemp, and wool. Our guiding thoughts have always been: how can we make this like 200 years ago, before most toxic industrial chemicals existed?
Since 1997, we have been homesteading off-the-grid on Denman Island, a small Gulf island in the Strait of Georgia. We grow our own organic foods year-round and tend to a plethora of feisty rescued pet animals. Life is good! We are grateful that we can continue to pursue our homesteading ways while being able to do what we love, which is making pure organic cotton, linen, and hemp products for people who need and want them. Thank you for sharing our hopes, dreams, and vision all these years! Read more in About Us.
Our team of 50 are our family. Most have been with us from the beginning. (Many of our customers have also been with us from the beginning, so they are like family to us, too.) Each is dedicated to making the purest and most sustainable organic cotton, linen, and hemp clothing and footwear products imaginable. We constantly innovate, bringing to market unique products such as 100% hemp knits, 100% linen knits, stiff unwashed hemp canvas (for bags), 100% organic cotton fleece that is brushed on both sides, hemp shoes with natural rubber sole, and silky-soft single-ply hemp knit, which is perfect for breathable undergarments.

Wanna know how your favorite Rawganique & PureClothes products are made? Here's a behind-the-scenes VDO showcasing the production process at our European atelier.
When grown organically and harvested naturally without chemicals and acids, hemp - Cannabis Sativa or industrial hemp - and flax linen are incredibly versatile and powerful natural fibers that give rise to chemical-free organic clothing, footwear, bed, bath, paper, bodycare products and more. Organic cotton, a familiar fiber, is also essential in the eco-wardrobe because of its versatility and stretchy and soft characteristics that complement nicely with baste fibers such as linen and hemp.
PureClothes.com is our responsive website geared towards people who are accessing our website via the myriad personal devices that are proliferating like mad, making it hard for the original Rawganique.com website to keep up with (iPad, iPhone, Galaxy, etc al, we're talking about you!). :D Same great organic cotton, linen, and hemp clothing and home products, just built on a different technology.
We are organic hemp clothing. Not just any hemp, but organic European Hemp. We are organic cotton clothing. We are organic linen clothing. We are 100% natural clothing. Oh, and bed, bath, kitchen and home products, too! All chemical-free, hypo-allergenic, and sweatshop-free.
It started with our low tolerance for and high aversion to chemicals. Because we were chemically sensitive, we needed to find stuff that didn't trigger allergic reactions. Failing to find suitable natural products that met our purity and sustainability needs, we started making organic cotton, linen, and hemp products in 1999. We have grown to over 1,000 organic products since.
All the products we offer are sweatshop-free. We make our chemical-free organic cotton, linen, and hemp products here in the USA, Canada, and Europe, and NOT *you know where*. Our organic products are free of all the nasties like BPA, PVC, dioxin, formaldehyde, heavy metals, petrochemical dyes, flame-retardant chemicals, wrinkle-proofing chemicals, and animal cruelty. Pretty neat, eh?
Our organic cotton, linen and hemp products are designed for (and by) chemically sensitive people with compromised immune systems and people who have undergone surgeries & chemotherapy. But that also makes our products great for everyone else, too, since it's not just what's in our clothing and bedding (all the organic goodies) that matters. It's what's been excluded (like all the nasties) that matter more. It's never a good idea to expose yourself to industrial and household chemicals, period. Don't wait until allergies come calling. Prevent them by going pure!
Over the years, our customers have found amazing uses for the organic products we put out: from busy executives in big cities (hemp suits), to yogis meditating in caverns (hemp yoga mat & clothing), to MCS folks trying to fend off the chemical world (organic undies & socks), to posh organic resorts around the world (hemp shower curtains & organic mattresses, towels and bed linens), to entrepreneurs making hiking sandals, candles, and dog toys (hemp ropes & twines), to couples exchanging vows in hemp attire (the whole nine "hemp" yards). You are what you eat (eat fresh organic foods). You are what you wear (wear organic chemical-free clothes). It's that simple.
As a small-scale manufacturer, we are able to pay attention to all the little details that matter. Like finishing our fabrics in Germany, with its stringent environmental regulations. Or combing our hemp to achieve soft fiber instead of breaking it down with acids. Read more about Rawganique.com and our full-time self-sufficient homesteading life.

We exist because you exist. We continue to exist because you care.

"If you assume that there's no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, there's a chance you may contribute to making a better world. That's your choice." — Noam Chomsky
"Man-made clothing fibers, such as nylon, spandex, and Teflon (—ed. even bamboo, which is a made-made fiber that has gone through many caustic and chemical processes), have only replaced cotton, wool, and silk (—ed. and linen and hemp) over the last sixty years. During this time there's been a significant increase in health problems that may be associated with wearing synthetic garments: fertility problems, respiratory disease, contact dermatitis, and cancer." — from Killer Clothes by Anna Maria & Brian Clement
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph in the world is for enough good men and women to do nothing... Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large armaments industry is new in the American experience. The total influence, economic, political, even spiritual, is felt in every city, in every statehouse, every office in the federal government. We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. -- President Dwight D. Eisenhower
The spiritual birthplace of Rawganique.com is in a picturesque town in Transylvania (now called Romania), with its long illustrious history of artisan hemp. The actual birthplace of Rawganique is on Denman Island, a little island in the Strait of Georgia, where in 1997 two off-the-grid homesteaders started a revolution in the Eco clothing, footwear, and bed bath and home industry by aiming for true purity above all else.
Rawganique's co-founders Klaus and Touch, with the help of a team of artisans, manufacture sweatshop-free organic products from start to finish. All done in-house with 50 artisans with many lifetimes of experience and passion. State of the art modern equipment. Ancient traditional practices. Grow - weave - knit - sew, we do it all. Small scale but full scale comprehensive. If it can be made with organic fibers, we can make it.
We pledge having nothing to do with pesticides, GMO, formaldehyde, dioxin, bleaches, acids and heavy metals. We grow our organic raw foods year round in the garden. We try to live as close to Nature as possible. And we want you to love wearing what we make everyday knowing that everything we make won't harm the earth or you. Or our artisans.
