Why recycled cotton?
The recycled cotton comes from pre-consumer textile waste and has to be blended with virgin fibre for technical reasons. This gives waste a second life. Remember that recycled cotton thread uses much fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton.It is therefore an excellent durable option.
Why organic cotton?
As for the virgin fibre that we mix with cotton fibre, we opted for organic cotton because it is made without GMOs or chemical products, its growing process also preserves the soil fertility and soil regeneration and reduces groundwater pollution.
