Why organic cotton?
Organic cotton has been naturally cultivated and grown without synthetic agricultural chemicals typically used in conventional farming as fertiliser and disease/pest control. These chemicals, along with non-organic farming processes, can significantly increase health risks to farmers, neighboring communities and the local ecosystem*.
We choose to make our products from organic cotton to reduce our impact on people and planet, in addition to ensuring our pieces are soft enough for the most delicate skin and durable so they maintain quality and shape - making sure you get the most from your garments and ultimately reducing end-of-life waste. Organic cotton is also naturally biodegradable and because we don't use harmful dyes or chemicals, only the good stuff goes back into your compost heap.
The first organic cotton is thought to have been planted in the 1980s and offered a more sustainable, eco-friendly and biodynamic fabric option, despite this, it still only makes up around 2% of all cotton grown worldwide.
By choosing to buy organic cotton products, you’re helping to increase demand for this greener alternative and create a more sustainable and ethical textile industry.
