Cotton is one of the most adaptable fibres used in clothing and a staple in most or our wardrobes, but it has a large environmental impact. Farmers working with Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) are trained to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and apply fair work principles. Garments made of BCI Cotton are kinder for people and the planet than conventional cotton. You can enjoy wearing it knowing that it has a positive impact from farm to wardrobe! Mixed with a bit of stretch to give you the perfect fit.
