SUSTAINABLE CHALLENGES

Cottover is manufactured in order to meet the social and environmental challenges that exist in the entire production chain , from raw material to the readymade garment .
The cotton is organically cultured without harmful pesticides by farmers that receive fair compensation in accordance with the criteria set by Fairtrade . We have minimized the use of chemicals in the entire production chain and only specifically approved colorants and chemicals are allowed in the after process , all according to the criteria set by the Nordic Ecolabel , Svanen . The UN conventions regarding labour terms must also be followed by all suppliers and we have full and complete traceability from cotton to the readymade garment which is rare in the textile business today . The clothing has also been tested to secure a high quality . By manufacturing products with good quality we are able to decrease the waste of global resources , at least in some extent , in terms of clothes being disposed , too soon , too often .
When we as clients actively chose sustainable products instead of conventional we are able to make impact on textile business .
