While we are all facing hardship – either mentally or financially – we decided to use this time to get you involved in our design process and help us choose the colours for our next season.
We love our new jersey fabric which we’re going to use for our tee shirts, why do we love it? We love it because not only is it made from 50% GOTS BCI organic cotton, but its also made from 50% post-consumer cotton!
What the heck is GOTS and BCI? We’re glad you asked!
BCI cotton: The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organisation and the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future.
GOTS organic: GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of textiles. It is internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of manufacturing.
