A note on organic cotton, OEKO-TEX & ISO standards from the SupplyDivision.group :
According to our understanding the total yield of "organic" cotton is currently(November 2021) just approximately 0.95% of the entire worlds cotton production. Naturally this dictates that it is currently at a very high premium. It is generally "snapped-up" for use in high specification and "top-end" products, and not yet commercially used on "regular products". We are not yet aware of any "standard/regular" trim being made in commercial quantities from such an expensive & very rare commodity. If you are offered such we would almost certainly advise that, in our opinion, it was a "marketing trick", an "untruth" or similar and that you should conduct considerable "due diligence" to ensure accuracy of any such claim.
On a positive note, many of our products are manufactured under certifiable clean OEKO-TEX and/or ISO quality assurance standards. Please see individual items for data. Regrettably some traders are confused by these international quality assurance standards and/or choose use them to claim products are from "organic" sources etc, that is not correct.
Naturally we are always keen to to be educated on this topic and to help move our industry forward in it's drive for sustainability and neutrality. We would be delighted to receive any advice you may have on this subject and/or links to help increase the opportunity to use a benign yarn in our products. Please feel free to advise.
