All our clothing is made from certified organic cotton. An alternative that is dedicated to the environment and the quality of life of the people who live directly or indirectly from the cultivation of cotton.
Why is the use of organic cotton so important to us?
The cultivation of conventional cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. It is estimated that cotton producers use 25% of the insecticides used globally and more than 10% of the pesticides. These chemical products filtrate into the water contaminating rivers, lakes and waterways damaging and altering entire ecosystems. These toxins are harmful to the fauna, flora, agriculture, the workers in the textile factories and finally to us as users of these clothes.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The GOTS legislation/rules have developed as the standard on the implementation of rules with the aim of defining requirements that are recognised globally and that assure the organicness of textile products from the obtaining of the raw material, through responsible production with the environment and social means, up to the correct labeling with the aim that the final product offers the end consumer the necessary security and credibility.
Since their appearance in 2006, the NTOG showed their capacity of real application. Backed by the growth in usage of organic fibres and by the demand in unified criterias in the industrial and the commercial sectors, it gained universal recognition, allowing the companies who process and make textiles, offer a certification which is recognised in all the large world markets. The logo and labeling system GOTS allows the products that are certified to be visible not only on the shelves of natural textile products, but also in large stores and wholesalers. This represents a milestone in consumer recognition and a strong support for the concept of quality assurance.
To ensure that the whole production chain is sustainable, we work exclusively with certified brands. In the labels of our clothes you can find the corresponding stamps.
