Organic Fabrics, Natural Fibers, & Fabric Certifications
Organic products are manufactured in accordance with agricultural guidelines that prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and genetically modified plants. Organic farming requires healthy soil to protect the ecosystem and workers. In addition to the 'organic' label, there are more stringent certifications like The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), OEKO-TEX certification, and the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI). We seek to work with these materials most of all.
Natural Fibers are raw materials harvested directly from an animal, vegetable or mineral. They are great for regulating body temperature and monitoring perspiration. Natural fibers work in multitude of climates making them very versatile.
