Fabric Focus: Organic Cotton
Cotton is the mainstay fabric of our wardrobe. Soft and breathable, it is a year round, versatile staple. At Public Figure we love supporting brands that work to reduce their impact on the environment by choosing to use organic cotton.
WHY SHOP ORGANIC COTTON?
Natural fabrics are a common preference for many, the benefits such as breathability, tactility and movement are hard to trump with engineered fibres. However, natural materials – cotton in particular – have come under scrutiny in the sustainability debate due to the large volume of water it takes to produce and the harmful effect potent pesticides have on the local environment.
As a conscious consumer, seeking out Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic materials is the way to go. Purchasing an organic cotton garment comes with multiple benefits - it demands far less water to grow and the methods used to cultivate the cotton crops give back to the earth through biologically diverse agriculture, preventing the need for pesticides.
Public Figure is your one-stop-shop for organic styles to take you into Winter. Shop organic cotton staples, loungewear and knitwear from our selection of sustainable and ethical brands.
