100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton
Cotton is one of the most popular fabric choice for any clothing items. Most of them are made of conventional cotton, however, which means it takes lots of toxic pesticides that jeopardizes the ecosystem around the cotton farm.
Organic Cotton is grown without the use of harsh chemicals. It promotes biodiversity and also safer for the health of cotton farmers.
The fabric is hand-dyed and screen printed by artisans using low impact, AZO-free dyes. AZO refers to common chemicals that used to dye textiles. Some AZO dyes, when absorbed by human skin, can be toxic and potentially be carcinogenic.*
Arc & Bow uses low-impact, AZO-free dye certified by GOTS. These dyes use less water and chemicals in the dyeing process.
