A bit about The Organic Textile Company:
Phil and Ann began Organic Textile Company around 2005 and their daughter Nancy now runs the company. They use GOTS certified mills in India and Turkey. Their main partner is Genesh in Kerala.
Around fifteen years ago we became aware of the damage we do to people in third world countries who grow cotton and have to rely on pesticides. Thousands die each year. They live miserable lives, tied to poverty, bound to a system that supports agro chemical suppliers. Most of these farmers have 4 or 5 acres. By allowing them to farm organically, they and their families can live a more prosperous and healthy life that allows crop rotation and non-reliance on pesticide and fertiliser sellers.
Organic means that the cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides, using pheromone traps, crop rotation, hand picking of bugs and natural repellents.
This allows farmers to grow food and keep animals instead of being reliant on costly chemicals and fertilizers. They receive more for their crop and the input costs are lower and the fabrics will be pesticide free.
We have a small charity called ‘Loom.’ We return some of our profits to help the weavers we work with in Kerela and pay a little more for our fabric rather than trying to drive down prices.
We distribute ten percent of profits to staff and we support local initiatives and interest free loans to local businesses.
