Short socks of 90% organic and fair trade cotton, ideal for people with a sensitive skin.
3 colors, 2 sizes (39-42 and 43-46)
Only fairtrade and organic cotton
The hand-picked organic cotton traces its origins to the Rajlakshmi project, an association of 1100 Indian cotton farmers and their families.
The Rajlakshmi project is based south of the city of Indore in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
The FTF has been a major client of the Rajlakshmi project for some time.
The biologically grown cotton is used for the FTF clothing
. This helps the (approximately) 1100 families working on the project to provide for their daily needs in an honourable manner.
The transition to organic cultivation has proved a success.
The contracts with partners in Europe such as FTF mean that the prices which the biological farmers receive for their cotton are about 25% higher than the normal market price.
The guaranteed purchase of the cotton and this premium make the transition to organic cultivation even more attractive for traditional farmers.
Moreover, the transition to organic cotton is also good for the cotton farmers’ health! Hectolitres of pesticides are avoided and this means that the local people are no longer exposed to poisonous substances.
Biological farming helps to improve the quality of the soil water and the drinking water for both human beings and animals.
Via organic cotton to the end product
After the cotton has been picked, it is spun in an environmentally-friendly manner.
The material is refined using biodegradable resources and processed mechanically.
The paints do not contain any heavy metals.
The soft organic cotton is free of any harmful residue – the ideal solution for sensitive skin.
