Mani-stone Organic Cotton
Organic Cotton is grown and then processed for fabric using methods that impose a lower impact on the environment than conventionally grown cotton. No harmful chemicals are used, and low impact dyes ensure that less rinsing is required, and a high absorption rate is achieved in the process. These premium quality fabrics are long-lasting, comfortable, and healthy for the skin.
The raw cotton material used by mani-stone is approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard ensuring that it meets with the highest level of organic standards. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standard setters to define world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles. The producers of the yarn are required to engage fully in environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing and every part of the process is certified from the harvesting of the raw organic cotton, use of non-toxic dyes to the natural fabric treatments which are employed. GOTS certification ensures good working conditions and fair pay is awarded. The organic collection is packaged in biodegradable plastic bags made from biopolymers
