FABRICS

Organic Cotton

Grown without harmful chemicals, organic cotton uses less water and produces 46% less CO2. As it is not chemically treated, organic cotton may also shrink or misshapen without proper care. 

How to Care for Organic Cotton

Organic cotton can be machine or hand washed.

  • Place lightweight garments such as button down shirts in a mesh bag before a machine cycle. This helps prevent snagging or twisting. 
  • Use normal to mild detergent and spot treat any stains with small amounts of stain remover prior to washing. 
  • If your garment looks misshapen, you can re-shape them while damp.
  • It is recommended to air dry as the heat from tumble dryers may cause shrinkage. 
  • Iron at low to medium temperature to prevent burning or shrinking. 

It is advised to wash less frequently to prolong the life of the garment and to reduce the environmental impact of the resources needed.
