Premium products are made out of 100% organic cotton. Renewable resources. Recycled materials. Organic cotton comes from seeds that have not been genetically modified (non-GMO) and is grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers.
Benefits of organic cotton: 26% less potential for soil erosion, 46% less impact on global warming, 70% less acidification of land and water, 91% less surface and groundwater use. Organic cotton avoids any kind of pesticide poisoning which can lead to multiple health problems and even death.

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading certification body for the production of organic fibres and is based on both ecological and social criteria. It guarantees that cotton is organically grown without the use of GMO seeds, or any harmful chemical products (such as pesticides, fertilisers and insecticides) that are dangerous for the environment or the health of farmers or factory workers. It ensures traceability of products from the field to the final customer, including transaction certificates at each and every stage of production. https://www.global-standard.org/

OEKO-TEX® is a safety standard for the assessment of harmful substances in fabrics. Its aim is to ensure products are free from harmful substances and follow REACH, the EU regulation which restricts the toxicity of chemicals and heavy metals in all consumer products. https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product.

FAIR WEAR FUNDATION
Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is an independent organisation that works with apparel brands, garment workers and textile industry influencers to improve labour conditions in garment factories. FWF are active in Bangladesh where they audit factories and support trade unions to lobby European governments and other organisations to increase wages and improve working conditions. FWF representatives carry out audits in all our partner factories every three years and put in place Corrective Action Plans (CAPs), as necessary. They also regularly organise Workplace Education Programs (WEPs) in partnership with brands, to help factories reduce and eliminate workplace violence and harassment. FWF also runs an inde-pendent helpline number which ensures complaints are heard and taken care of, should the factory’s internal grievance-handling mechanism fail.
