Every organic cotton product represents a step in the right direction. Cotton is used in 40% of worldwide textile production, giving it a widespread, global reach. By choosing organic cotton, you're doing your part to ensure that global impact is a beneficial one.
Why is organic cotton different?
IN THE FARM
Organic cotton has the special characteristic of being cultivated in a land free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and defoliants, being the opposite of conventional cotton cultivation. Cotton is harvested by hand in its entirety, which generates many benefits, among them less environmental impact since no machinery is used for the harvest, it gives work to members of the community and also guarantees the quality and purity of the product.
The abuse of pesticides and industrial fertilizers, especially the nitrogenous ones, has degraded soils and contaminated waters of many parts of the planet. On the contrary the use of organic cotton keeps the water clean and workers' health safe from disease.
IN THE FACTORY
We apply the policies for clean production and preventively take into account raw materials, products, processes and work organization, all with the objective to minimize emissions and / or discharges at source, reducing risks to human health and the environment.
We implement the following aspects in the process to make our garments cleaner:
All waste from the cutting and production of our garments are recycled and converted for a second use in a preventive way to achieve a significant waste reduction in our environment.
Efficient use of energy
Each raw material used in the production of our garments does not contain lead or other metals which are harmful to our health and are generally used in the textile industry, especially in underwear. Each input being used is carefully selected. Buckles, straps and laces complement the design of each garment without affecting our concept of clean production.
Each elaborated piece meets the conditions of fair payment to each of our mothers in charge of placing love and their work to make each garment. We do not work with children or support forced labor.
MADE IN COLOMBIA
We manufacture in Colombia as it is an industry with more than 100 years of experience and a consolidated production chain. We also support the work of hundreds of families who have workshops formed by single mothers which serve to support their own families.
