So you may have read our main fabric supplier is Lebenskleidung and we love them! Let’s begin with our favourite fabric;
The beloved ribbed organic cotton originates from Portugal, it is GOTS certified, supporting smallholder farmers in Uganda who follow organic farming. The process contributes to only rain-fed irrigation, no harmful herbicides
and pesticides are needed and the farm with crop rotation which means the soil erosion is limited and the land can be used for longer, it’s basically more sustainable and good for everyone. The fabric is good quality and has relatively short transport routes which is better than normal cotton, so like what you’re hearing?
