The organic cotton for these towels is grown on small collective farms in Indian villages using organic fertilisers and insecticides. Less water and energy is used to grow the cotton which in turn reduces costs and helps to stop soil degradation. Organic cultivation plays a key role in preserving the fauna and flora of the area as well as the health of the villagers.
No harsh chemicals, toxic dyes or softeners are added in the processing of the natural fibres. This makes the towels soft, super absorbent and long lasting.

Things to avoid:
Bleaches or Whitening Agents as these may leave discoloured patches on the towels. These patches, at times, may not appear until after washing. Bleaches will also weaken and break the natural cotton fibre over time.
Fabric Softeners, most will put a chemical coating on your towels and make them less absorbent.
Pulled threads should be cut off at the base of the towel. This will not effect the towels use or lifespan.
