At Hardy and Christensen, we pride ourselves on using organic materials in our products. This allows us to offer our customers eco-friendly, high quality, luxurious products that they can feel good about owning.
The use of organic fabrics is becoming more popular due to the many benefits it offers to both the environment and those who interact with the fabrics. Organic fabrics are made from materials that have been grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals, making them much better for the environment. They also meet the requirements of both the GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified standards, ensuring that they are eco-friendly and of high quality. Organically grown and organically processed cotton cuts down on landfill waste and reduces pollution, making it a much more sustainable option than conventional cotton. Purchasing GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified organic cotton products also protects the labour forces and environments connected to every aspect of the cotton production process. This certification ensures consumers can feel confident about the ethical implications and sustainability of their organic cotton purchases.
We care about our customers, about people at every level in our supply chain and about the environment. These are key drivers for what we do, and the careful and compassionate sourcing of fabrics is a cornerstone of our ideals and ethos. So, where we can, we will always use responsibly sourced and certified organic fabrics and where we can’t, for instance with fire-retardant fabrics, we will source these compassionately and with careful regard to those responsible for producing it.
After all, Hardy and Christensen was born out of our love for each other, for art, for fabrics and for the world around us.
