Organic Cotton

Organic Cotton

Breathable, Sustainable, No Pesticides

Choosing organic cotton is important both to respect the environment and for the well-being of the individuals. For the cultivation of traditional cotton about the 30% of the sold pesticides in the world are used, which is very harmful for our planet and is a possible source of allergies, because of the pesticides residues present in the staples. The cultivation of organic cotton reduces gas emissions that alters the climate by 46%, reduces water consumption for irrigation by 91% and primary energy consumption by 62%, without considering the 26% reduction in "production" of the bad algae that usually grow in waterways and canals because of the excessive enrichment of nutrients.

The use of chemicals is not limited to the cultivation phase only: once transformed into fiber, the cotton is bleached, brightened and dyed with substances containing heavy metals. In non-organic cotton, therefore, there are chemicals that can cause dermatitis and skin irritation. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is hypo-allergenic and is ideal for people with allergies.

Traditional cotton is generally harvested by machine to speed up time. This harvesting method damages the fibers and does not maintain their purity. The hand picking, on the other hand, allows to obtain longer fibers, without breaking or weakening them, and this makes the garments made of organic / organic cotton that softer and more durable.
