Cotton fiber is the purest source of cellulose and the most significant natural fiber.
Organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). It relies on natural seeds and pest control techniques, besides contributing to lesser water consumption. Apart from that, it also prevents the organic cotton farmers from losing their livelihood, which is a major contributing factor to one cotton farmer committing suicide in every 30 minutes in India

Handloom cotton also known as khaddar or khadi is a natural fibre fabric , woven from cotton. It is hand-woven on a spinning wheel, popularly called a charkha.
Handloom cotton adapts easily to the body from season to season keeping thebody cool in summers and warm in winters.
A symbol of India’s freedom movement, this fabric is organic and leaves zero carbon footprint. This fabric is also a means of livelihood and independence to the 70% of the khadi artisans who are women, living in difficult economic conditions.
As Recycled cotton is made from textile remnants in production, or from post-consumer textile waste from collected garments.
These are mechanically recycled, ground into fibres, spun into new yarns and made into new fabrics. Technical challenges usually don’t allow for more than 20-30% of recycled cotton from post-consumer waste to be woven into fabrics without quality loss — much depends on the waste source and style.
