We’re all about organic cotton. It's a soft, fluffy staple fiber that is grown only using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment, dependably replenishing and maintaining the land that is farmed.
We partner with USDA and GOTS certified farms – and that’s no easy designation to achieve. Organic farmers use no toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and no genetically engineered seeds. Instead, our Peruvian farms use pheromone and molasses traps to keep pests away.
Organic farming operations replenish and maintain soil fertility. By rotating crops and allowing for natural defoliation of the cotton plant, growing organic cotton utilizes land sustainably.
Synthetic fibers like acrylic, nylon, and polyester shed plastic microfibers with every wash, which is why clothing should not be made from plastic - even recycled plastic. Organic cotton is biodegradable and harmless.
Our cotton is naturally fed by Andean rainfall, which means less irrigation and impact on local watersheds. Organic cotton also requires less energy usage - 60% less than conventional cotton.
