We have always used cotton in our products and love many of its qualities. However we don’t love the environmental impact of its production! Even the unbleached cotton we use.
Did you know that around 25% of the world’s insecticide and 10% of the pesticide use is for the growing of cotton? This also has a severe impact on those working to farm the crops.
At Poppy Treffry we knew we had to help make the change and so we are switching all of our own fabrics to organic cotton.
Bit by bit you will notice little purple stickers appearing on labels of products already switched.
You’ll also see the lovely slight change in the background colour of the fabric as the organic process creates lovely little speckles. We love the way it looks and as ever are amazed by the whole fabric production process!
