Why organic cotton?
We believe that organic cotton is the best choice for sustainable and responsible fashion. Here are some reasons why we choose to use organic cotton in our clothing:
Reduced Environmental Impact
Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful chemicals such as pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. This makes it a more eco-friendly option compared to conventional cotton farming, which uses chemicals that can contaminate soil and water and harm the environment. Organic cotton farming uses natural methods such as crop rotation and composting to maintain soil fertility and prevent soil erosion. This helps to protect the environment and the health of the farmers who grow the cotton.
Better for Consumers
Organic cotton is free from harmful chemicals, making it a safer choice for consumers. Conventional cotton is often treated with toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde and flame retardants, which can cause skin irritation and other health issues. By choosing organic cotton, consumers can reduce their exposure to these harmful substances. Organic cotton is often softer and more comfortable to wear than conventional cotton, providing a better experience for our customers.
Organic cotton is also known for its high quality. The cotton fibers are longer and stronger, which makes for a more durable and longer-lasting product. Additionally, organic cotton is often softer and more comfortable to wear than conventional cotton. This means that our products not only benefit the environment and farmers but also provide our customers with high-quality and comfortable clothing that will last.
Why Does Organic Cotton Cost More?
One question that customers often have is why organic cotton products cost more than conventional cotton products. The answer lies in the production process. Organic cotton farming requires more labor-intensive methods, such as hand weeding and natural pest control, which can be more expensive than using chemicals. Additionally, organic cotton yields are typically lower than conventional cotton yields. This means that the cost of production is higher, which is reflected in the price of the final product. However, we believe that the benefits of organic cotton are worth the extra cost and we're committed to providing our customers with products that are sustainable, responsible, and of the highest quality.
Where do we source our fabric from?
One of our main suppliers for organic printed cotton is CottonBee.
This Poland based company is both GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified and here we can ensure that our fabric is made environmentally friendly.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a certification that ensures textiles are made from organic fibers and are processed using environmentally responsible manufacturing practices. GOTS certification covers the entire supply chain, from harvesting of the raw materials to the finished product. It also requires compliance with social criteria, such as fair labor practices and workers' rights. GOTS certification ensures that textiles are free from harmful chemicals, making it a reliable standard for eco-friendly and sustainable textiles.
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is a certification for textiles that confirms that they have been tested for harmful substances and found to be safe for human use. The certification covers all stages of production, from raw materials to finished products, and is intended to ensure that textiles do not contain any harmful chemicals that could be detrimental to human health. The OEKO-TEX certification is an important tool for consumers who want to make informed choices about the safety and sustainability of the products they purchase.
