What is Organic Cotton?
Organic Cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and other agrochemicals for more than 3 years on virgin soil. Generally, these chemicals are used in order to yield a higher amount of cotton. The cotton plant uses the most pesticides than any other crop, causing great pollution in the soil, water, and atmosphere.
What are the benefits of Organic Cotton?
Organic Cottons are more comfortable and softer to the human touch, since agrochemicals may irritate the body. They also retain moisture better, drape well, and are clean, simple and naturally beautiful to our senses.
Growing organic cotton encourages agricultural methods that do not harm the environment, thus saving many animals, birds, and humans from pesticides. We also introduce a recycling approach—organic materials decompose naturally back into the earth, therefore not leaving behind harmful toxins.
