In today's society, many people are making adjustments to their lifestyle and are more conscious of the environment around them. From changing food diets, using less plastic and now buying organic clothing, the sustainable fashion movement is growing fast.
We believe that all brands should be conscious of the environment and contribute to reducing waste and doing their bit to be more sustainable and eco-friendly.
Whilst sustainable organic cotton clothing may be more expensive, it has significant long-term benefits for the planet and will remind us that natural clothing is healthy and effective for us in the long term.

How Do I Know If Something Is Organic?
There are various sustainable cottons available, but if you want to be sure what you are buying is grown in a truly sustainable way, certified organic cotton is the best option. Some brands claim to offer organic cotton, only to find out that they use harmful dye / inks on the material so check if they have a GOTS certificate.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standard setters to define world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles. From the harvesting of the raw materials, environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing to labelling, textiles certified to GOTS provide a credible assurance to the consumer.
