100% Organic Cotton
Our organic cotton is sown and harvested manually without the use of genetic engineering, chemical or synthetic pesticides. Instead, the farmers use beneficial organisms and natural pesticides, such as an extract from neem trees. Due to favourable climate and soil properties, Tanzania is particularly suited for organic cotton cultivation. Artificial irrigation is largely unnecessary. In order to maintain soil fertility and biodiversity and to prevent soil erosion, our organic cotton is grown in crop rotation. The farmers are paid fairly and are also protected in the event of a crop failure. For more information on organic cotton, you can find our guide here.
Handmade in Portugal
We manufacture our jersey products in collaboration with family businesses in northern Portugal. The production covers the entire material cycle from the fiber onwards.
Spinning, knitting and sewing facilities are within a radius of around 20 km and have been working together successfully for decades. The proximity of the locations saves long transport routes. In addition, we manufacture in small series to avoid overproduction and to guarantee variety for the craftspeople.
Wash at 30°
Iron at low heat
Dry on low heat
Do not bleach
Washing your laundry at 30°C is usually sufficient, protects the fibers and saves energy. For example, a wash at 30°C uses only about 2/3 of the energy of a wash at 40°C. Washing colder is not only good for the environment, it is also cheaper.
Detergents should be biodegradable. In Austria, for example, this is indicated by the eco-label. The dosage according to the packaging should be generally adhered to, whereby soft water (such as in Vienna) requires less detergent than hard water.
The use of fabric softener should be avoided altogether. Baking soda can be used instead of aggressive bleaching agents, and a little vinegar helps against unpleasant odours.
A large amount of energy can also be saved by air-drying your laundry instead of using a dryer.
