Velour is made from a knitted fabric of plated loops. In a later stage these loops are cut and sheared which gives the fabric a smooth and very soft, velvet-like surface. Velour is used for leisure wear (sweaters), children’s wear and toys.
All our velour fabrics are GOTS certified. Ecological Textiles only produces cotton fabrics that are made from certified organic origin. This means that no herbicides or insecticides were used on the fields and that no GMO was applied. The GOTS certificate is your guarantee that no harmful chemicals were used in the entire production chain, that strict social standards were followed (fair trade, no child labour, healthy working conditions). In short: GOTS guarantees that the highest ecological and social standards were followed.
The velour, as all our other organic fabrics, were made in Turkey, in factories with which we have a long and stable working relation. Only the superb so called Aegean organic cotton is used, which is grown in the districts close to the Aegean sea and that is famous for it's long fiber length, good spinnability, softness and beautiful colour. The is also were the knitting mill is situated. The proximity of raw material and the mill where the cotton is processed results in a lower carbon footprint. The fabrics are transported by truck to our warehouse.
