Origin of the material

The organic cotton was grown in the Turkish districts near the Aegean Sea (so called Aegean cotton). Turkey has a large cotton industry and the cotton was spun and knitted there in GOTS-certified factories, thus limiting the carbon footprint.

It assures you that the cotton from which this fabric was made was grown organically, without using insecticides or pesticides. In addition it is your assurance that the most ecological and socially responsible methods have been used throughout the entire production process. This means amongst (many) other things:

  • no GMO
  • no harmful chemicals
  • no child labour
  • no dyes or inks that have been classified as allergenic
