Simply put, organic cotton is the best form of cotton, both for the planet, the growers and the people who wear the clothing. Grown naturally without the use of harmful chemicals, means that the planet maintains a healthy soil content and the workers are breathing clean air too. Organic cotton also requires less irrigation to grow, saving water which is often in short supply where cotton is grown.
Organic cotton clothing is such a comfortable fabric to wear because it breathes with you, keeping you cool in the summer and cosy in the winter. Caring for your organic cotton clothes is easy. Simply wash in cool or warm water (gentle cycle is fine) and hang up to dry naturally. This material is very durable and will last you for many seasons to come.
