Organic cotton is produced using non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. As a result, organic cotton has a low impact on the environment – protecting soil fertility and water systems, and using significantly less resources. In order to preserve each fibre, organic cotton is handpicked, resulting in improved durability and softness. Although the current production of organic cotton accounts for less than 1% of global cotton, demand continues to increase each year. Today the production of organic cotton is monitored by certification authorities such as the Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS).
What is Organic Cotton
Grown in non-genetically modified fields without the use of fertilizers or pesticides, organic cotton is able to restore and maintain soil fertility. It also requires minimal irrigation and produces up to 90% less greenhouses gasses as compared to conventional cotton.
Organic cotton is handpicked, which helps to preserve each fibre and avoid wastage. Handpicking ensures fibres aren’t damaged, resulting in products of superior softness and durability. Today organic cotton is primarily grown in subtropical regions such as China, India and Turkey.
