Why organic cotton?
We´ve worked very hard to make sure that our clothing company materializes a sustainable way of dressing (and living!). We want to be more than a fashion trend, we want to raise awareness about sustainable clothing.
That´s why our cotton is 100% organic and GOTS certified, a “green” standard to all organic cotton. It comes from plantations where no pesticides, toxic fertilizers or GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) are ever used. An in the top off all, less ecological print: organic cotton uses 88% less water and 62% less energy.
Conventional cotton uses about 16% of insecticides and 7% of pesticides globally that end up in the soil, the atmosphere, watercourses, contaminating everything we breathe, eat and drink.
Less ecological print, more confort
There are more good´s in using organic cotton, and confort is one of of the most important. Due to the maintenance of it´s natural properties, the cotton is lightweight and smooth, and also hypoallergenic.
We also use cork, another 100% natural, hyppoalargenic and comfortable raw material that lives abundantly in the natural portuguese landscape. On top pf that, were aiding the increase of Cork Oak forests in Portugal. They in turn, will retain CO2 (globalwarming’s best friend), creating unique ecosystems, which contribute to healthy soil and the regulation of the hydraulic cycle. A beautiful green story which can last for over 300 years - the lifespan of a Cork Oak.
