The Bio Linen Line, Fair Trade and GOTS certified linen
In its collection Blycolin offers bedding, bath linen and table linen, a responsible new line made of 100% organic and Fair Trade certified cotton. In the entire cultivation and production chain of the cotton the Bio Linen Line complies with strict ecological requirements and the working conditions are monitored.
No toxic and chemical substances are used at the cotton fields. In addition the small cotton farmers receive a fair price for their cotton. Thus they can build up a healthy existence. And hazardous dyes and bleaching agents are neither used in the production process.
GOTS and Fair Trade certified.
The responsible Linen Line is linked to two labels that guarantee the cotton has been certified as 100% organic and fair trade. One of the official certifications is the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) label. This is the worldwide standard, which monitors that only environmentally friendly substances and procedures are used in the cotton chain. The other label that Blycolin is allowed to link its Bio Linen to is the Fair Trade certified cotton label of Max Havelaar. This offers a guarantee that the involved small farmers are paid fairly, that they receive an additional premium to move forward and that child labour is, among several other things, excluded.
Blycolin is active in numerous areas to contribute to the improvement of the environment, society and the people's quality of life. This Linen Line is yet another big step forward. Not just for Blycolin but also for its customer relations. By opting for the 100% organic fair trade certified cotton Linen Line clients demonstrate to also be actively committed to a better environment and society. Without too much of an effort and without having to compromise in terms of look and feel and user qualities. The organic and fair trade certified cotton linen is chequered white, smooth and soft as silk. At the same time this line is strong and resistant to intensive use and industrial laundering.
