In 2010, we were certificated by both The Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS) and The Organic Content Standard(OCS) for the first time as a Japanese producer of spun cotton. Since then, we have observed the standards strictly, and have manufactured yarn with organic cotton.
There are more than 6000 associations around the world that have been certificated by GOTS. However, in Japan there are but a dozen or so.
The quality and yield quantity of raw cotton vary from year to year, therefore, the price depends on these factors.
We blend organic cotton harvested in a number of different places at the best rate, so that our quality is unaffected by weather and the market.
