Our products are made with you and your family in mind, thus the materials we use are naturally sourced. The cotton used in our garments is certified Organic by The Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). In order for the cotton to be certified, the growing methods have to be produced to a particular standard to ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labeling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.

A requirement is that the production of goods must be made without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically engineered seeds. In order for the cotton to be considered Organic, it must be handled using eco-friendly dyes, inks, and cleaning agents as it is being transformed into a textile for production.
From the harvesting of raw materials, through garment processing up to labeling, our processes are ensured to meet The Global Organic Textile Standards. Moreover, the left-over water after the dyeing process is safe enough to be used to irrigate directly without having any harmful impact on the environment.
We passed all criteria in the certification by once, including the social criteria, which is based on the key norms of the International Labor Organization. To meet the social criteria meaning that all our employees are working under safe and hygienic conditions, and are all fairly paid.
This certification not only shows our concern about the people who are wearing our clothes but also cares about the environment and our employees.
