Organic cotton is a type of cotton grown with natural methods, without using any type of chemical or synthetic.
To certify the origin of said cotton, extremely rigorous measures are used: the cultivation fields have to be at least 3 years without having been treated with any agrochemical, they must have a safety strip around so that contamination from other fields does not arrive, And of course, you should not use any product during the cultivation that is not natural.
The most internationally recognized certificate for organic cotton is the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
