ORGANIC COTTON by HEFEL
Organic Cotton is defined as cotton derived from 100% certified organic agriculture ("coa"). The cotton is grown using controlled agricultural methods that comply with strict regulations and is picked by hand. Organic Cotton producers guarantee that minimum social standards are met, that wages are adequate and working conditions are socially acceptable.
Pesticides and artificial fertilisers are completely avoided. The cotton is not pretreated with chlorine compounds, optical brighteners or chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds. Every stage of production, from cultivation to the finished quilt, is controlled as 100% organic.
