Our Organic Cotton is bought from a selection of smallholder farms in India. The cotton then goes to a ginning mill where the lint is separated. cotton lint makes up only 32-35% of the cotton ball. the rest is used as oil and cattle fodder - nothing is wasted!
The Organic Cotton fibres are twisted and spun into yarn at a spinning factory In Bangladesh. We use ring-spun, combed yarn.
We work with integrated partner factories which means that every process of garment manufacture happens at the same factory in Bangladesh.
Our suppliers are part of the fair wear foundation and have quality controllers present at all facilities to ensure that the factory comply with social and safety regulations.

The final t-shirts are sent from Bangladesh via boat. When they reach the UK, we work with a printing supplier in Yorkshire who use water-based inks to screen print our designs onto the t-shirts. They are then ready to be sold and sent to our customers!
