Why is organic cotton essential for ESCVDO? As a sustainable brand, cotton is the unquestionable choice
In recent years, the textile industry has witnessed a growing shift towards sustainability, and one key player in this movement is organic cotton. Unlike conventional cotton farming, which relies heavily on synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, organic cotton cultivation is rooted in a commitment to environmental stewardship and ecological balance.
At the heart of the environmental significance of organic cotton lies its cultivation process. Organic cotton is grown using methods that prioritize soil health and biodiversity. Farmers eschew synthetic chemicals, opting instead for natural alternatives and sustainable practices. This not only safeguards the health of the soil but also protects the surrounding ecosystems from the harmful impacts associated with conventional cotton farming.
The significance of organic cotton extends beyond textile production: it accomplishes water conservation.
At ESCVDO we work with organic Pima cotton from the coastal region of Pisco, Peru, that adheres to the highest fair-trade standards. Our supplier is LA COLONIAL FABRICA DE HILOS S.A. certified SGS ISO 9001, OEKO-TEX Standard 100, and GOTS. The specific cotton strain used for our garments provides the longest fibers available, yielding an exceptionally soft product.
