WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?
Cotton is a natural fiber that comes from the boll of the cotton plant. Organic cotton is grown without toxic pesticides and fertilizers, which protects the ecosystem and the people involved in the production process. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) traces the organic content of cotton and the entire production process to ensure that the material is treated ethically and sustainably. Only materials that contain at least 75% natural fibers can be considered for GOTS certification.
THE RIGHT WASHING TEMPERATURE
It is important to follow the recommended washing temperature, because too low a temperature can cause the colors to spread and too warm can shrink the garment. Products with strong colors and prints should always be washed inside out.
In general, we recommend using a washing temperature of 30 or 40 degrees. Dark and brightly colored products should be washed separately or with products of the same color in lukewarm water. Colors may fade, especially during the first washes. We do not recommend soaking our products. Using a tumble dryer can shrink cotton clothes, which is why we recommend air drying.
The cotton product may shrink in the first wash. Clothes should be styled damp after washing and they can also be ironed slightly damp or steamed dry.
