Very popular in textiles, cotton is the most produced natural plant material in the world. It can be cultivated in two modes of agriculture, conventional or organic.
Organic cotton cultivation is obviously the most ecological and ethical.
From the seed of the seed to the harvest of the flower, organic cotton is grown without pesticides, insecticides or chemical fertilizers and without GMOs.
Producers use natural fertilizers and insecticides, which do not harm the surrounding ecosystems, do not deplete the soil and are not toxic to the men who work on the production chain.
Organic cotton cultivation also makes it possible to consume less water compared to conventional cotton.
The organic fabrics used by Maison Coquelicot are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified by Ecocert.
In addition to the certification of organic production, this label allows ethical and eco-responsible monitoring and control of the entire processing chain to guarantee a responsible and sustainable product.
In textiles, cotton is synonymous with freedom and creativity.
In terms of work, it allows a wide range of possibilities of textures, meshes and weaves.
In muslin, poplin, jersey, pique or honeycomb, cotton allows us to do wonders.
During the thinking process, it allows us to think about our products with more freedom to achieve durable, comfortable and practical products by playing on textures, absorption, softness and shape.
At the same time, this raw material leaves many possibilities for customization. In addition to being very resistant to dyes, prints or embroidery, cotton provides possibilities for flocking, sublimation but also coloring.
With the sustainable objective of shortening our production circuits, La Fabrique & Co 'and Maison Coquelicot have the project to soon be able to guarantee you organic cotton grown in the Tarn, a few kilometers from our seamstresses!
