Material organic cotton l Sophie Stone

What is organic cotton?

Organic cotton is produced using techniques and materials that have a low impact on the environment. For example, the cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers and is spun without the addition of chemicals. The crop is protected against harmful insects in a natural way by, for example, the use of butterflies. All this ensures that organic cotton is better for both the environment and the health of the cotton farmers and their animals.


Organic cotton clothing

Organic cotton clothing is more comfortable for sensitive skin because it is natural and does not contain irritating dyes. In addition, it is softer and thicker than conventional cotton, which is why garments made from organic cotton last longer. This is because the fibres of conventional cotton are weakened by the chemicals used in production. 


Certified organic cotton

The organic cotton used by the labels in the Sophie Stone collection is certified. This means that the production of organic cotton is strictly controlled by independent organisations. The best known certification of organic fibres is the Global Organic Textile Standard, abbreviated to GOTS. This standard uses very strict criteria in both ecological and social areas.

In addition to the name organic cotton, the term organic cotton is also often used, as well as bio-cotton or eco-cotton
