But what gives organic cotton that lived-in appeal, that super-soft touch right out of the box? It’s all in the staples, or cotton fibres—the fine strands that compose a Raw Cotton Boll. It’s a fact that not all cotton is created equal, and we source only the finest long-staple organic cotton that is combed for extra softness. The longer the cotton fibre, or staple, the fewer imperfections, which results in a softer, more luxurious feel.
Softness aside, organic cotton clothes are inherently better for your skin (your Bodies’ largest Organ) than conventional cotton. Says Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), organic cotton is never exposed to the toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, chlorine bleach, and carcinogenic compounds like Glyphosate that conventional cotton is treated with.
It makes sense, then, that organic cotton is worlds better for those who have sensitive skin, eczema, allergy and other skin issues.
I love that our organic cotton dresses are great for your skin and for the farmers that grow it. It’s what I call “look good, feel good”—especially when you can Feel Good about your purchase. My goal is a lofty one. We support producing the comfiest, healthiest clothes in the...
The importance of Organic Cotton
From a fashion standpoint, Organic clothing now follows all the latest style trends. This means that there are now brands available which offer your favourite styles produced in organic cotton!
However, the biggest benefit of organic cotton remains the environmental aspect: the crops are not treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms. These substances are harmful to farmers and workers, to us as consumers, and to entire wildlife eco-systems.
Organic cotton is grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on our environment. An important difference between organic growing systems is that they replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton uses far less water too.
Unfortunately, today, less than one percent of all cotton grown is organic.
- Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. It is estimated that each year cotton producers use as much as 25 percent of the world's insecticides and more than 10 percent of the world's pesticides; an incredible amount for one just one crop.
- These chemicals can be deadly. Such pesticides poison farmers all over the world. Factory workers too have to breathe in their fumes during the manufacturing process. According to the World Health Organization up to 20,000 deaths, each year are caused by pesticide poisoning in developing countries. Here in the US alone, more than 10,000 farmers die each year from cancers related to such chemicals.
- These chemicals seep into run-off water after heavy rains, poisoning lakes, rivers and waterways. Pesticide residue has been increasingly discovered in foods, farm animals and even breast milk. Not only are these carcinogens responsible for thousands of cases of cancer in adults, but they are also particularly harmful to young children who can develop debilitating neurodevelopmental effects.
- We even feel the harmful effects of non-organic cotton and fabrics in our daily lives. Irritated skin, rashes and even headaches and dizziness can be caused by the chemical residue trapped in the threads.
- To make matters worse, many Indian farmers, facing illness and bankruptcy as a result of using pesticides, end up committing suicide, leaving behind their destitute families to suffer.
More and more brands and fashion houses are committing to organic materials. Some very large and well-known brands, as well as dozens of smaller brands, have also championed organic materials, all kinds of fabrics are available now in sustainable organically grown cotton.
Consumers need to be aware that their choices can literally save the lives of our farmers, our rivers and streams and give our youth a chance to grow up in an unpolluted environment.
