Organic Cotton

Our canvas collection, cotton totes, dust bags and lining are made from GOTS certified cotton. This cotton is organic and grown without any harmful pesticides or fertilizers. No heavy chemicals are used during the dyeing process. The GOTS certification also guarantees fair trade conditions, meaning all employees work in safe and healthy environments and earn fair wages.

GOTS is the leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. The GOTS standard includes every step of the supply chain: from harvesting to production, processing, manufacturing and labeling. GOTS also takes the environmental management and social responsibility of producers into account. More information about the GOTS certification can be found here.

Since 2018 the cotton for our lining and dust bags has come from the Anandi Eco-Farm project, which provides non-GMO seeds, technical support and training on sustainable organic production within communities.
