What is organic cotton?

Organic cotton is a fibre whose production process is designed to be as ecologically sustainable as possible. No pesticides, insecticides or other chemicals are used on organic cotton fields, so the soil retains its fertility. By excluding chemicals from organic cotton production, local bodies of water are not polluted, and the work environment is much safer for human health.

Organic cotton is mostly watered by rainwater. It is estimated that up to 80% of the crops is irrigated like this. Thanks to that, it is possible to reduce water consumption in the textile industry considerably. Cottonseed oil, a by-product of the organic cotton production process, is used in food and cosmetics.

Although the price of organic cotton is usually higher than that of the conventionally-grown one, by investing in organic fibres, you not only receive a high-quality product, but you also contribute to reduced water consumption, cleaner air and improved working conditions for the farmers who work in the cotton fields.
