Organic cotton benefits

Organic cotton is produced and certified according to the standards of organic farming. The certification of organic cotton guarantees the origin of the raw material and tracks the cotton fibers during all the stages of transformation, from spinning up to the confectioning.






Organic cotton: the fundamentals of organic farming

Thanks to the standards established by organic farming, it is possible to choose 100% natural organic cotton yarn, which not only preserves the planet, but also has a positive impact on animals, people and farming communities. The benefits of organic cotton originate from the fundamental principles of biological agricolture: the health of the soil where the cotton grows; respect for ecology, understood as biodiversity and the balance of ecosystems; social justice, i.e. safeguarding equity for the people involved in all stages of the supply chain of organic cotton; the preservation of the planet, not only for the present generation but above all for those to come.

Benefits of organic cotton cultivation for the soil

Sustainable water management is a fundamental part of organic production. This involves the use of agronomic practices such as crop rotations and the use of green manure, catch and cover crops - shown to reduce nutrient leaching and run-off into water bodies. It is reported that soil organic matter holds 10 to 1,000 times more water and nutrients than the same amount of soil minerals, and one percent of organic matter in the top six inches of soil would hold approximately 27,000 gallons of water per acre.


Organic cotton grown on a “living soil”

The focus on soil health by the eliminating toxic and harmful chemicals from the production system, it may take some years for the land to reach a state of optimal productivity but, once it has, yields are comparable with those achieved through synthetic fertilizers that support plant growth but do very little to improve soil fertility over the longer term. Soils rich in organic matter are also proven to hold water more efficiently than those with less organic matter. Organic farming methods work with nature to maintain the ecosystem balanced.

Benefits of organic cotton for soil preservation

Organic farming methods work with nature to maintain ecosystem balance and biodiversity. Diversity in wild spaces and of native flora and fauna species is part of the equation, but the other important factor is crop and livestock diversity, which brings with it economic diversity and food security for farmers alongside benefits to soil fertility and biodiversity.

Benefits of organic cotton for people

Social justice, while not hard-coded into the organic standards or regulations, is nonetheless an intrinsic component to organic, ensuring that people are treated fairly and with respect, regardless of gender or race. Everyone involved has the right to maintain good health and safety, and to prosper from their investment in sustainable agriculture. This principle is concerned with the long-term sustainability of the planet, not just for current generations but also for generations to come.
