We just released a new GOTS Organic Collection in adult sizes!

We just released a new GOTS Organic Collection in adult sizes!

We've always used OEKO TEX® Standard 100 Cotton which ensures the cotton is manufactured in a sustainable and socially responsible way (it's also tested for harmful materials). Last year we also made a recycled cotton collection (supply chain issues made it impossible this year to make more of these recycled cotton socks). So, it was the perfect time for us to further explore using organic cotton!
