Cotton is one of the most commonly used fabrics. But conventional cotton is one of the thirstiest and most chemical-intensive crops to grow and thus, has a negative impact on the planet, and the people who grow it. Organic cotton, minimises the environmental impact of cotton production. But not all organic cotton is sustainably or ethically produced. This is why we at S’XERIFF , use GOTS certified cotton.
