The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres worldwide. It defines high level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain of organic textiles and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Our products are not descendent from any genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) or from products derived from those.There are minimum social criteria in terms of fair trade that must be maintained by all partners; such as no excessive working hours, no child labour.

What is organic cotton?
Organic cotton is farmed naturally using sustainable growing methods such as crop rotation instead of agrochemicals and artificial fertilizers. These safe farming methods keep our cotton chemical free, preserve our land soil, conserve energy, and protect our environment and health. Organic cotton is grown without herbicides, pesticides or any other harmful chemicals.
Why choose organic cotton over conventional cotton?
Organic agriculture promotes a safer and healthier environment by reducing the exposure of toxic chemicals used in production of conventional cotton. Organic farming methods improve soil fertility, preserve our environment and protect our air, water, and food supply from harmful chemicals. Conventional cotton is cultivated in a highly toxic process – contaminating groundwater and poisoning the food chain. While it takes approximately one pound of chemicals to grow three pounds of conventional cotton, organic cotton is grown chemical free.
