Organic cotton twill
March 18th, 2022
Twill is a woven fabric with a specific weave: the warp and weft threads interweave in an offset manner, so that diagonals appear on the fabric. It is frequently used for the manufacturing of jackets and pants for properties that are both thick and resistant.
The production of organic cotton is obviously a more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional cotton. Organic farming is done without the use of toxic chemicals such as pesticides and GMOs. It is therefore less harmful to the planet and to our health. This is one of the reasons why our undyed cotton twill pieces are made from GOTS and REACH certified organic cotton:
- The REACH label is a European regulation that aims to limit chemical substances in the manufacture and processing of textiles.
- The GOTS label (Global Organic Textile Standard) ensures the organic quality of textiles from the harvesting of raw materials, through the entire production chain, to product labelling.
This undyed cotton twill was sourced from a Japanese weaver who offers untreated fabrics, in order to reduce water and energy consumption, thus allowing the natural colour of cotton to show through. As these are undyed fibers, there are some irregularities which give each piece an authentic character and texture.
