Cotton is relatively flexible, it is very comfortable, feels soft on the skin and can absorb up to 20% of water without feeling wet. Canvas is known for its high resistance against sunlight, strength and the fact that it stays in form for a long time. Organic cotton fabrics are produced eco-friendly and are also skin-friendly.
Origin of the material
The organic cotton was grown in the Turkish districts near the Aegean Sea (so called Aegean cotton). Turkey has a large cotton industry and the cotton was spun and knitted there in GOTS-certified factories, thus limiting the carbon footprint.
