46% BAMBOO, 46% ORGANIC COTTON, 8% ELASTANE
Sourced from a UK Supplier who monitor their supply chains, standards & certifications. Knitted & dyed in Turkey. GOTS certified.
The origin of cotton is Aegean region of Turkey (Near İzmir).
This is what they say at the mill: We always obtain our own cotton from contracted farmers. Our spinning house is in Denizli. Depending on the quality or lead times we may use different knitting and dying houses placed in Denizli, İzmir or İstanbul. All facilities have to be certificated otherwise it is not possible to give GOTS certificate to the final items (fabric or clothes)
All of the facilities (Farms, Spinning, Knitting or even warehouse where the finished fabrics are controlled and packed) have to carry the responsibilities that certification requires. The certification is made by non-profit certification companies like ICEA or Control union.
The mill buys the yarn from this company - bamboo - OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified. The bamboo that we use is grown in China.
We have made a Zero Waste Scrunchie from off-cuts created during garment production, otherwise destined for the landfill.
