    Hi Lucie,

    It depends to which types of clothing you are allergenic?

    Where does it irritate you?

    I am allergic to almost everything you can think of, including clothing and textiles of many kinds. I have found that even organic cotton clothing breaks me out and makes me cough like crazy. The ONLY brand that I have found that works for me is called Cottonique. Their clothes are not only made from organic cotton, but they are dye free, resin free, latex free, chemical free, synthetic fiber free, and bleach free. Their clothes are insanely expensive, but I find them to be long lasting. 

    If you are not quite allergic to everything, you might try some clothing basics from organic clothing lines. Some of the more popular ones, that I have had hit or miss success with are: Nigel's Eco Store; The White Company London; The Kids Window; Plain Lazy; Natural Collection; Green Nippers; and Ethical Superstore. 

    Good luck in your search!
