We have become a member of the Better Cotton Initiative (B.C.I) which is a non-profit oganization that regulates cotton supply certifying labour well being and environmental practices.. We have started to source our animal products with Non-Cruelty Certificates. These are operated with the most recent Information Technologies and we are looking forward to adapting more.
