Fortunately every day we are more brands that bet on this type of fabrics. Fabrics that come from organic farming, such as organic cotton t-shirts, are more sustainable and ultimately much more environmentally responsible. Also, the end customer has begun to value these aspects. As customers, we have begun to become increasingly aware and interested in the origin and production processes of our garments and to look much more closely at the labels.
Every time we demand greater transparency and information and we are concerned about purchasing garments that have a lower environmental impact. In this sense, the increased responsibility not only at the corporate level, but also at the individual level, when buying and purchasing products is notable.
Ecological fabrics such as organic cotton:
Within the ecological fabrics, in debutànt we work mainly with certified organic cotton. Cotton fabrics are the most versatile, soft and durable. For said cotton to be considered organic, it must necessarily carry the corresponding certification by a series of independent bodies that certify it.
What information does this certification give us?
It ensures the traceability of the entire production chain from the cotton fields, and in English?
The certification accredits us that the objective of organic agriculture has been met throughout the process: making good, responsible and sustainable use of local natural resources. Also, not using external inputs such as chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified seeds. Finally, using only external inputs that are ecological.
The organic cotton t-shirts of our brand have various certifications that certify that the fabrics come from organic agriculture as well as its practices and processes.
GOTS, which is one of the most demanding and is internationally recognized; the Soil Association Organic Certification certificate that guarantees the protection of the environment and the fulfillment of certain standards; the Carbon Trust certification that refers to the fact that, during the process, the carbon footprint has been measured and reduced during the life cycle of the product; the OEKO-Tex certification that informs the consumer that the textile products have been analyzed so that they do not have substances harmful to health or the Organic 100 and Organic Blended certifications that will bring the garments of our next collection.
You can read more detailed and specific information about it in our post “GOTS Certificates and Fair Wear Foundation What do they mean exactly?“
Organic cotton vs conventional cotton:
Garments made from organic farming fabrics are much more respectful not only with the planet, but also with our own skin. Using this type of ecological fabrics we avoid getting in contact with chemicals and toxins that could cause us some kind of problem such as allergies / dermatitis or aggravate them. At this point in debutànt it is also important to close the design process and print only with ecological or water-based inks to obtain less polluting and non-aggressive garments for our skin as a whole.
