In the bathroom, the shower curtain is king of décor. Whether you opt for a lively patterned curtain or a solid neutral, this one piece sets the mood for your bathroom’s design. From it you can orchestrate an entire decorating scheme, drawing one paint color for the walls, another color for the towels as well as the general look and feel of the room. Finding an organic cotton or hemp shower curtain isn’t difficult. Finding an organic cotton shower curtain that comes in a color other than white or beige? That’s a bit more of a challenge. If you want an eco-friendly shower curtain with a personality, check out these options.

Amy Butler

Amy Butler’s products are anything but boring. This designer isn’t afraid to use bold colors and patterns, as evidenced by the organic cotton bedding lines for which she’s famous. Several of her latest designs also come printed on organic cotton shower curtains.

The cream and white Bucharest curtain draws upon Romanian influences for a classic but lively look. The teal, green and blue Coventry curtain gives a modern take on classic English gardens while the orange, red and blue Bloom curtain takes inspiration from handmade Persian rugs.

VivaTerra

VivaTerra’s organic cotton shower curtains will transport your bathroom to another part of the globe. The Indigo shower curtain draws its inspiration from textile artisans in northwest India. The curtain is dyed with natural indigo derived from plants, giving this shower curtain an authentic richness and depth of color that can’t be reproduced by synthetic dyes. The Shibori shower curtain uses the traditional Japanese method of dyeing fabric (shibori) to produce a distinctive shower curtain.
