What is organic cotton denim?
Organic cotton denim is produced using cotton grown with organic farming methods.
The production of organic cotton aims to minimise the negative impact on the environment, promote soil health, and ensure the well-being of farmers and workers. Organic farming practices prioritise sustainability, biodiversity, and the preservation of natural resources.
To achieve organic certification, cotton farmers must adhere to strict guidelines set by organic certification organisations or government bodies. These guidelines specify the use of organic inputs, the prohibition of synthetic chemicals, and the implementation of sustainable farming practices.
Our selvedge denim uses organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard, commonly known as GOTS, which is the leading independent textile processing standard used worldwide. GOTS certification ensures the cotton meets stringent standards for organic production, environmental sustainability, and social responsibility.
Organic cotton farming employs water-conservation techniques, such as crop rotation, mulching, and efficient irrigation methods. These practices help reduce water consumption and alleviate pressure on water resources, especially in regions facing water scarcity.
Conventional cotton farming is one of the most pesticide-intensive agricultural practices globally. By choosing organic cotton, you contribute to reducing the overall use of harmful chemicals in the environment and support the development of more sustainable agricultural systems
