FROM CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARMS OR RECYCLED COTTON
DO WE USE?
We do not support pesticides, chemical fertilisers, water wastage and genetically modified seed! For this reason, we source our cotton exclusively from certified organic farms (kbA) or recycled cotton.
Whenever we want our fabrics to be particularly soft, snug and durable, we always use organic cotton. Moreover, Ccotton is known for being extremely skin-friendly, durable and low-maintenance.
COTTON IS THE MOST POPULAR AMONG NATURAL FIBERS.
WHAT DOES "CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARMS" MEAN?
Cotton from certified organic farms is grown and harvested by sustainable methods. For example, all fertilisers are either animal-based and/or plant-based, and only organic pest control is used. The fields are weeded by hand, and less water is used than in conventional production methods.
Incidentally, certified organic farms regularly use crop rotation methods. This means that other plants are grown between the rows of cotton plants in one and the same field. This method not only offers protection against unwanted pests, but also serves as a food supply for the local population.
FACTS ABOUT COTTON
It is estimated that around 50% of the world's textile fibres for clothing are made of cotton.
On average, one kilogram of cotton in conventional production requires 20.000 litres of water.
The water consumption in the production of organic cotton is 91% lower than in conventional productions.
Synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides are prohibited in certified organic farms.
