We are so proud of our organic cotton made in Canada toques! But what is GOTS Organic Cotton?

At Highfield Knitting Company, we are committed to using sustainable and Eco-friendly materials in our beanie and scarf production. That is why we choose to use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton in our products.

Here are some reasons why we use GOTS organic cotton:

  1. Environmental Sustainability: GOTS organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and fertilizers, which can pollute the soil and water. Instead, organic cotton is grown using natural methods like crop rotation and composting, which helps to maintain healthy soil and preserve biodiversity.

  2. Health Benefits: Traditional cotton farming practices often involve the use of harmful chemicals, which can be harmful to the health of workers and consumers. By using GOTS organic cotton, we ensure that our products are free from harmful chemicals, promoting the health and well-being of our customers and workers.

  3. Social Responsibility: GOTS certification requires that fair labor practices are followed throughout the production process, ensuring that workers are paid fairly and work in safe conditions. By using GOTS organic cotton, we support the social responsibility of the textile industry.

  4. High Quality: Organic cotton is known for its high quality, durability, and softness, making it an ideal material for clothing production. By using GOTS certified organic cotton, we ensure that our products are of the highest quality and last longer.

  5. Innovation: By supporting GOTS organic cotton, we are contributing to the growth and innovation of the organic textile industry. This helps to create new and sustainable materials that benefit the environment, workers, and consumers.

Using GOTS certified organic cotton in our products aligns with our commitment to sustainability, environmental and social responsibility, and innovation. It ensures that our products are of the highest quality, free from harmful chemicals, and produced in a way that supports the health and well-being of the planet and its people.
