We produce more than 400,000 organic cotton and linen garments every year. Here's what this means for the health of the planet and farm workers.
We skip chemicals: Flax seeds are not pretreated with fungicides; early spring shoots are not sprayed with pesticides; petroleum-based fertilizers and herbicides are not used; workers are not exposed to hazardous chemicals. We're reducing our impact even further: At harvest, our organic flax is soaked with dew, which means the slender flax stems are cut off and left in the field, where moisture and sunlight soften the woody stems. Other methods of retting include the use of chemicals or large amounts of water to separate the fibers from the stems. Our organic flax is grown in rotation with food crops such as wheat and canola oil. By purchasing organic linen clothing, we are also supporting the pesticide-free food chain.
