GOTS Certified Organic Cotton emits 94% less greenhouse gases in production compared to conventional cotton.✖
Mixed with corn-derived PLA for lateral and medial reinforcement – a planet-friendly alternative to standard polyester.✖
Used as the substrate in our internal reinforcement. Durable. Strong. We are working towards making this organic.✖
