The cotton is grown to have a low impact on the environment without the use of toxic pesticides and uses low-impact inks and dyes. It is strictly monitored from seed to finished product and must pass regular inspections to earn the coveted GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certificate.
With cute prints for baby and more and a coordinating group of solids, these GOTS certified cottons will be just what you need for your next special project.
