Organic cotton benefits us by protecting the environment. Our GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) cotton causes less water footprint and fewer carbon footprint. The cotton has been grown on fields without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or defoliants. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and locally adapted inputs in place of chemical inputs which can have an adverse effect on the farmer and the environment genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are prohibited in organic products. Cotton fibers represent 26% of total fibers in the world and Organic cotton counts for less than 1% of the total cotton production.
We rely on Global Organic Textile Standard because it contains at least 95% certified organic fibers. But another kind of standard is often used in fast fashion that allows that fabric with only 5% organic is certified as organic mistaking to customers. We have raw cotton and fabric certification. There are no certified manufacturing companies in Spain where we can produce our garments.
