Think about it from the ground up. Cotton is a soft, delicate fiber that grows in a ‘boll’—the protective case surrounding the cotton seed—and an extension of the supportive ‘branch.’ We have always committed to supporting and protecting organic cotton farmers in the developing world who have been marginalized and extorted by big name corporations for generations. Metaphorically speaking, the boll does for the cotton seed as we strive to do for those who dedicate their lives to the farming and crafting of organic cotton. The cotton boll and branch are the foundation of our company, and everything we are able to do begins in the simplest form of the cotton plant. Read our blog entry for more information!
We searched the globe near and far in search of the best cotton, and ended up finding what we were looking for in Orissa, India. Our sateen and towel products are made with sustainable practices in India by people who earn
respect and fair wages for their work, which means your business supports economic opportunity to a special group of cotton growers who have historically
been underserved by big business. Our flannel products are made sustainably in Portugal by expert artisans who have mastered the tradition of flannel manufacturing and design, and the cotton used to create flannel originates from Turkey.

We’re glad you asked! Switching to organic cotton has a number of benefits for you, your family and your global neighbors. The environmental effects are astounding: farmers are able to grow cotton without the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides, preventing seepage and contamination into the groundwater that is so essential to the health and safety of local communities. This also means that you and your family can have a truly peaceful sleep, knowing that our products are pure, grown naturally and provide opportunity for so many people. Three cheers for a feel-good sleep, inside and out!
When you invest in our thoughtfully-made products, you receive the whole package! Like our textile products, our packaging is eco-friendly and sustainably-produced. Our white gift boxes are made without the use of laminations that prevent conventional boxes from being recycled. With a 100% recycled board, aqueous varnish and water-based adhesives, recycled contents make up more than 80% of each box. In addition to using recycled materials, we produce our boxes in a socially and environmentally focused factory, which is SA8000 certified, an accreditation for social accountability in the workplace.
