Organic Cotton Certification
Organic Seeds, free of GMO's or Bt Pesticide is the first step in organic integrity on the way to your bedroom via our organic cotton sheets. The Cotton ginner is vital in this process as they gather and manage the seeds at the end of each harvest and return those seeds to their organic cotton farm co-ops for return to the farmer. In an endless cycle as nature intended, organic cotton assures a chain of sustainability.
