Organic Cotton || Better for Mom, Baby, And the Planet!

But, really though, why should you care about if your cotton is organic or not?

Just like organic foods, the benefits of going organic really are very much the same and may surprise you!

Let’s dive in!


The Differences, From Seed to Shirt:

Unlike conventional cotton, organic cotton is grown using non-GMO seeds planted in healthy organic soil. As the plants grow, farmers then commit to nurturing them without the use of harmful pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, basically the idea of this process is to work with nature, and not against it.

Once the cotton is harvested and spun, the resulting textiles are then dyed using low-impact, non-toxic dyes.

At RASKANA we ensure that all of our Organic cotton is free from genetic engineering/GMOs, and undergoes certification standards to ensure that our mills and manufacturers meet or exceed defined organic standards set by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), plus, all of our product is also made in the USA!


So, clearly the process is different, but what are the benefits?:

  • Softer and More Durable: One of our favorite benefits of Organic Cotton is that, by using non-GMO seeds, and avoiding fertilizers, this results in longer fibers than non-organic cotton. This gives the materials a much softer finish and makes the finished product much more durable!
  • Safer for you and your baby: Who wants to be in contact with chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, and toxic dyes? Yeah, neither do we!
  • Reduced Environmental Impact: Organic cotton farming's natural methods that take less water to produce, preserves the quality of the soil, and limits soil erosion.
  • Support for Biodiversity: By avoiding hazardous synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, organic cotton farming promotes biodiversity and provides a healthier habitat for wildlife.
  • Healthier for Consumers and Workers: Organic cotton protects consumers from exposure to toxic chemicals and ensures that textile workers aren’t handling harmful substances during the manufacturing process.

Also, for anyone wondering, why Organic Cotton French Terry Instead of Brushed Back Fleece?

Organic Cotton French Terry is slightly more "rough" than your brushed back fleece. This French Terry material is durable and gets softer with every wash and wear, without the pilling you get with brushed back fleece after multiple washes. It is also much more durable than many other substitute fabrics as well, making it great for the wear and tear of life with little babies and toddlers!
