Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In addition, federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

Linen fabric is two to three times stronger than cotton. Because of its porous nature, linen has natural heat and moisture wicking properties that make it a good conductor of heat. Linen is also hypoallergenic, very resistant to damage from abrasion, biodegrades quickly and cleanly and it is extremely comfortable in all seasons. It feels cool in the summer and retains warm air in the winter. Plus it gets softer and more beautiful with each wear!
