This one in particular is 100% cotton, although not organic cotton: http://www.dharmatrading.com/clothing/junior/junior-fine-jersey-tank-top.html. They do have t-shirts in organic cotton, just not tank tops: http://www.dharmatrading.com/clothing/organic-cotton-clothing-and-fabric.html. The highest cost for the organic T is $9.99 for 1-11 shirts, 2x-3x size. Cheaper for smaller sizes or higher quantities. Highest price for the tank top is $8.59 for juniors 2x, again with lower prices for smaller sizes and higher volumes. Note that the tank tops are on clearance though.
