GOTS Certification

What is organic cotton... For the production of organic cotton, organic production systems are used to fertilize the soil. We eliminate the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, toxics that are persistent in the environment and in the cotton itself. The bleaching stage is carried out with the exclusive use of hydrogen peroxide, avoiding the use of harmful brighteners and bleaches such as chlorine.
