We trust the source of organic cotton coming from Remei AG, who guarantees supply chain transparency from seed to us.
Their organic cotton is sown and harvested manually and without any use of genetic engineering or chemical or synthetic pesticides. Instead, the farmers use beneficial animals and natural pesticides such as an extract of neem trees. In order to preserve soil fertility and biodiversity, and to prevent soil erosion, Remei’s organic cotton is grown in crop rotation.
