ALKOTÓ-Organic 200 px-01

If you see this logo in the care label, it means that the clothes you are wearing are made of organic  cotton  .

At the end of 2018, we decided to change our productions from the use of conventional cotton to organic cotton .

The organic cotton is certified. LETIS is the organization behind these certificates.

We have chosen to change all our current styles to organic cotton , therefore there may be a transitional period where the products have some sizes and colors in organic cotton and other sizes and colors in conventional cotton . Therefore, we have chosen to label the organic products with cotton flower, so that we can easily see the difference between the different products.

Our products in 100% organic  cotton  products are certified with GOTS sustainable Textil Methods certified by CERES. 

CERES controls that the products are made and handled within the standards of GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard version 5.0)  Read more about GOTS.
