Maggie's Functional Organic Tights
I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm
No, I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more...
Well, maybe I would work on Maggie's farm if she grew organic cotton, which is similar to the story behind Maggie's Functional Organics
Believe it or not, the idea for Maggie's Organics began with an Organic Tortilla chip. We were in the food business, busy selling both blue and yellow corn tortilla chips, when one of our farmers recommended adding cotton to the crop rotation to improve the quality of the corn.

Founded in 1992, Maggie's is one of the first companies to offer US consumers affordable, organically grown cotton clothing.
Maggie's Functional Organics make the best organic, fair trade cotton tights! These tights contain 73% certified organic Peruvian cotton, 22% nylon, 3% lycra, and 2% rubber. I lived in these tights when I was pregnant, and I recently bought another pair.
