Product information

Part of our organic cotton scarf collection for Spring, inspired by nature

Introducing our popular oak leaf design in a new, beautiful soft pink shade for Spring. Soft in colour and feel, made from organic cotton with strong environmental and ethical benefits over non-organic cotton. There is a refined elegance to this scarf, so it looks the part during the day through to evening, throughout the year. The stylised oak leaf pattern is pretty yet not over-stated.

The cotton story

Cotton is the world's largest non-food crop, and millions of people rely on the industry for survival. However, the environmental impacts of conventional cotton farming can be devestating.

Cotton production uses huge volumes of water, which has led to the loss of habitats around the world - for people and animals.

In Kazakhstan for example the Aral Sea that supported a strong local fishing industry and a wealth of wildlife shrunk due to cotton production, leaving a Sea that is only a fraction of what it once was and taking away a place that many called home.

In addition, most fabrics made from cotton rely on farming methods that use harmful pesticides. The run-off from contaminated fields can poison rivers, wildlife and whole communities. Furthermore the cost of these pesticides often leave farmers trapped in debt.

GOTS certified organic cotton

Organic cotton is produced without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) ensures textiles are produced in a more ecological and socially responsible way.

  • Water use is monitored, with targets set to reduce water consumption and increase efficiency more sustainably
  • Pesticides are not used, encouraging more wildlife-friendly farming
  • Social criteria are also required: Minimum wages, safe working conditions, and fair working hours.
  • Using a natural fibre like cotton means microplastics leeching from fabrics into our waterways is not an issue

Look out for the GOTS logo and better alternatives to non-organic cotton when updating your wardrobe.

Advice

Caring for your organic cotton scarf

The dry clean label has been added to our organic cotton scarves as this method will prolong the life of your scarf.

However you should also be able to cold hand wash and cold and gentle machine wash (30 degrees) your scarf though it may result in a shorter lifespan than if it was only dry cleaned. Further washing advice is available in this wiki how article: https://www.wikihow.life/Wash-a-Dry-Clean-Only-Garment

Cotton scarf, soft, good size, lightweight but why is it 'dry clean'?
