PLANT DYED ORGANIC COTTON
Our Organic Cotton fabrics are GOTS certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. It's a comprehensive accreditation covering things like prohibiting the use of toxic chemical inputs, regulating the treatment of waste water, enforcing laws around forced labour and of course strictly prohibiting child labour.
We work with a talented group of artisans in India on our 100% chemical free dyeing process. All ingredients and materials throughout the process are plant based. This in itself is a technical feat and our team has 16 years of research behind them to develop techniques that are kind to the environment without sacrificing quality or colourfastness.
For example, our yellow tones are achieved using tacoma flowers. The handpicked flowers are dried for 3 days before being soaked in rain water and ground thoroughly to extract the colour. During dyeing, milk, plantain sap and vegetable oils are added to fine tune the tonality and the finish.
Using plant dyed organic cotton removes the use of toxic chemicals throughout our supply chain. It also makes a crucial difference in the lives and health of the people making our clothing. A product that is kinder to the environment and to your skin.
