What Is Organic Cotton?
The farming system relies on natural inputs only. No synthetically produced pesticides or fertilizers are used. in favor of crop rotation, which increases the organic matter in the soil. Weeds are removed and controlled by hand and by hoeing. Pest control is achieved by bringing in natural predators, using beneficial insects and certain trap crops which lure insects away.
Why Organic Cotton?
- Organic Cotton is safer
- Organic Cotton is better for the environment
While growing organic cotton does not use less water than conventional cotton, it does not use more. Most organic cotton is rain-fed and not irrigated. They rotate crops to maintain the soil nutrients and ability to hold water in.
Why GOTS Certified organic cotton?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Only products which contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. You can find out more about this certification via their film on their website.

We also ensure that every one of our supply members receives fair wages and working conditions which promote a happier work-environment which in turn stimulates growth in employee production levels.
Moving onwards, we promised to always use organic cotton, natural low-impact dyes, recycled packaging, supporting GREEN LOGISTIC (via DHL) and will continue to evolve and act our best to minimise our footprint towards our nature.
