Sustainably Grown, Sustainably Made
Organic cotton farming combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved. Organic cotton is sustainably grown without the use of GMO seeds and synthetic pesticides. Organic cotton farming has a significantly lower ecological impact on the environment.
Genetically Modified Seeds (GMO) require a larger investment and thus greater risk, creating a disadvantage for farmers from subsistence communities. Fair prices mean better livelihoods. Using fair trade principles, organic cotton farmers are paid a fair price for their product.
Healthy farms mean a clean environment. Every year more than 70 million cotton workers worldwide suffer poisoning from pesticides. Not using dangerous pesticides protects farmers' lives, soil, drinking water and the environment.

Organic cotton production uses lesser energy resources and healthy organic soil stores more carbon helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Organic farming also makes better use of water inputs. Being rain fed saves precious water resources and results in soil that is more resilient during drought condition.
100% Organic Tanguis Cotton Toys
Named after agriculturalist Don Fermin Tanguis, Tanguis Cotton was first discovered and documented on the southern coast of Peru in 1908. Tanguis Cotton is of exceptional quality because of its soft touch, strength, excellent absorption, and high dye affinity.
Since ancient times, Peru has boasted some of the highest quality indigenous cottons in the world. The length, strength and fineness of local cotton ensure the highest quality textiles. The specific climate and soil conditions make Peruvian cotton seeds yield the longest stems in the world, which coupled with perfect balance between resistance and fineness, make for some of the best regarded materials in the textile industry.
