Honesty, transparency and an ambitious wish to make a difference is a rock solid foundation for the company, founded by entrepreneur Joy Vasiljev in 2007.
Since then, the company has developed a collection of organic textiles for the home, which includes textiles for the bath, kitchen, children, bags, meditation and blankets.
The products are designed by The Organic Company and, from time to time, co-designed with selected Danish designers.
All products are made of organic cotton and certified with the international organic standard GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
This standard focuses on 2 major areas; environment and social responsibility, and guarantees that all fabrics are free from toxins and heavy metals, and international workers rights are respected.
In short: The Organic Company. Copenhagen based. Design, quality and respect for people and nature are our foundation and our values.
THE TIME IS ALWAYS NOW
What is organic cotton?
“Organic cotton is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. It benefits cotton producers and the environment in developing countries by avoiding the harmful effects of toxic pesticides, and the reduced cost of production improves social conditions.
- It’s better for the farm environment
- It’s better for workers in the developing world
- It avoids GM
- It doesn’t use harmful manufacturing chemicals
- Factory conditions are higher
- The end garments are residue free
By contrast the non-organic cotton industry is a huge source of global environmental pollution, using almost one quarter of all the world’s insecticides and 10% of pesticides, social conditions for cotton growers can be poor, with poverty, health problems and suicide common, and thousands of chemicals are used to turn raw material into clothes, towels, bedding and other items that we put next to our skin every day.”
