Organic cotton has a great number of benefits that make it preferable to non-organic cotton. Organic cotton is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. It benefits cotton producers and the environment in developing countries by avoiding the harmful effects of toxic pesticides, and the reduced cost of production improves social conditions. By contrast, non-organic cotton is a huge source of pollution, using almost 25% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of pesticides. Conditions are often poor for cotton growers and a lot of chemicals are used in production to turn raw materials into textiles that we put next to our skin every day.
The Organic Company
The Organic Company was founded in 2007 by Joy Vasiljev. The company’s design philosophy is based on simple Scandinavian aesthetics focusing on function and quality, as well as the need to respect the environment by using organic cotton throughout their whole product catalogue.
Ranging from kitchen textiles to blankets and bath robes, The Organic Company’s products are characterised by unique sizes, choice of materials and flexible functionality. All designs are created between The Organic Company themselves and various Danish designers.
The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) standard guarantees the consumer not only that all fabrics are organic but also that a series of international workers rights are met and that no toxic, or polluting chemicals are used in the production. The center of the GOTS certification is the comprehensive controls made by an independent certifier, who monitors and tests every part of the production chain – from the organic cotton farmer to the spinning mill and dye works to the importer.
Since 2010, all items have been certified with the international organic label GOTS and The Organic Company continues to be focused on and around design, quality and respect for people and nature.
