We only offer organic cotton that is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) or USDA National Organic Program Certified, which means you can trust this cotton was grown and harvested in an ecological and socially responsible manner. The quality, softness, and durability of organic cotton is as good or better than conventional cotton. By utilizing organic cotton we get to help support and grow more responsible businesses and improve the world's health, biodiversity, water resources, soil conditions, and environment. Organic products, as defined by USDA’s National Organic Program, are products produced utilizing methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity; synthetic fertilizers and genetic engineering may not be used. The organic cotton in our products are manufactured under strict conditions, resulting in a pesticide, herbicide, and chemical-free products. Yes, it costs more, but the purchase helps future generations!
We only use super safe long lasting eco friendly water based inks that are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class I Certified to print our artistic designs on garments. Water based inks are so soft that they feel like they are part of the fabric. By utilizing water based inks we are able to minimize our impact on the environment while offering safe clothing for people to wear and work with in the production process. Our inks are also CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) compliant inks, which are required when printing on children's wear 12 and below.
