Ecobutterfly Organic Cotton
Ecobutterfly yarns are made with organic pakucho cotton which supports the supply chain from the native plantation farmers to the conscious crafter. Organic colour grown pakucho cotton is grown naturally in Peru. Pakucho meant brown cotton in ancient Inca. Today, native~spun pakucho cotton is grown in natural, cream, beige, brown, avocado and mauve shades. No pesticides, herbicides or other agri-chemicals are used to grow or colour these yarns. All harvesting and colour sorting is done by hand.
Pakucho Organic Cotton is 100% GOTS certified at the source. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Naturtex is a Fair Trade certified company & that means living wages for the artisans that make their yarns.
