Organic Design Dose.(ODD)

Do you find it 'ODD' that clothing can be made from food?  No, I am not talking about Lady GaGa's epic meat dress, (please don't let those images haunt me for all eternity), I am talking about a clothing company that manufactures everything using natural ingredients.  The ingredients are what I think you will find to be very peculiar and most likely these are not the first "food" items to have come to mind.  The two main ingredients include; soybeans and milk..but why use them?


  • Have the moisture absorption of cotton
  • Have 16 amino acids
  • Are anti-bacterial
  • Cashmere-like feel
  • Chemical free & non genetically modified!
  • Warmth retention properties make milk similar to wool
  • Absorbs moisture
  • 18 amino acids
  • Anti-fungal & anti-bacterial
  • No use of pesticides or chemicals!

I think it is fantastic that we are all starting to pay more attention to the things we eat and drink.  There are so many chemicals that alter our foods and that have negative effects on our health.  ODD is doing something really great here, in my opinion, they are opening up a whole new can of worms.  Did you think foods were the only product doused in chemicals?  Think again!

There is formaldehyde on your clothes!  You mean the stuff they use on dead people?  Yes!  Most of what I have read has said that there is a very insignificant amount, but the formaldehyde is there, even after the wash!  One study was done in which 20 items were tested using a chromotropic acid method.  11 of the 20 items tested positive for formaldehyde.  The 9 items that were free of formaldehyde were all fabrics made from synthetic materials.  The Scientists concluded that even after several washes, the clothes were not formaldehyde free.  EW!

I would carry ODD at the store, but it is a little pricey, as are most things organic.;year=2004;volume=70;issue=6;spage=342;epage=344;aulast=Rao
