Why organic?

 

As parents ourselves, we choose to work only with organic fabric for many reasons but mainly because we feel it’s the most responsible choice for the next generation. Especially for fabric aimed at the childrens clothing market, its important to reduce chemicals and residues on something you are going to place next to young skin.

When you buy a GOTS-certified product, you have the assurance that all the following applies:

  • All fibres are produced and processed in isolation, without contact with conventional fibres
  • All chemical processing is regulated to ensure non-toxicity and biodegradability
  • Toxins and allergens are banned: pesticides, heavy metals, formaldehyde, aromatic solvents, functional nano particles, genetically modified organisms (GMO) and their enzymes, chlorine bleaching, azo dyes that release carcinogenic amine compounds, printing using aromatic solvents and plastisol printing methods using phthalates and PVC; PVC, nickel and chrome for accessories; PVC for packaging materials
  • Paper and cardboard utilised are recycled
  • Strict controls in production and processing so that workers are not exposed to toxins
  • No child and forced labour
  • A dual system of on-site audits and residue testing ensures that the end product meets all given criteria
