Why organic cotton and bamboo?
Organic cotton is better for the environment and your skin. Non-organic cotton is farmed with the assistance of pesticides, insecticides & fertilisers. This ends up in our air & water streams which is damages the environment. These chemicals also don’t just disappear when the cotton transforms into yarn. Wearing non-organically grown clothing exposes your skin to these chemicals, which is your biggest organ. If you eat organic food, why not wear organic clothing? Organic cotton & bamboo is hypoallergenic which prevents skin irritation. Bamboo is a great insulator, keeps you warm
