Talking about the benefits of organic cotton, Shishir says “We mostly use organic cotton in our creations because is grown without the use of pesticides and chemicals. It also helps prevent farmer suicides as they get better prices and yields and also do not need to use harmful pesticides which affect their health. Bamboo Clothing absorbs moisture rapidly and keeps the person wearing it dry even after perspiration. It is also Anti - bacterial and Anti Static. Both above all the fabrics are soft and extremely comfortable to wear,”
He adds, “It is our mission to contribute to the betterment of our natural environment with the help of our citizens. When someone buys our products, not only do they sport clothes which do not contain harmful chemicals, but are also contributing to the environment in three ways. They are encouraging the growth of organic cotton which helps to keep the land free of harmful chemicals and fertilizers. The amount is directly contributed to Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) which will help them undertake more conservation activities. And last but not the least they are indirectly helping the farmers in higher realizations of money and keeping them healthy and debt free,”
