Made from GOTS certified organic cotton from Portugal, our PYRATEX® core I is a comfortable, breathable fabric ideal for essential basic garments, a body-embracing, more sustainable version of regular form-fitting fabrics.
The organic cotton is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards: its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs.
Organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms), instead combining tradition, innovation and science to benefit the environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.
Compared to growing regular cotton, organic cotton reduces field emissions from fertilizer, energy use, and needs less irrigation.
The organic cotton in this fabric is blended with ROICA elastane, a 100% degradable replacement for traditional elastane. It is eco friendly because it has:
Reduced oil content (1-3%)
Reduced water consumption in scouring and dyeing process
Reduced air pollution
Reduced energy consumption
Excellent molding performance
High UV resistance
Cotton fiber is highly breathable
Cotton fiber is smooth and prevents skin irritation
Cotton fiber has insulating properties
