We use Teemill because each product we make with them is designed to be sent back when worn out, and we make new products from the material that's recovered.
That starts at a materials level, by choosing natural organic fibres. Organic cotton is better for the producers and the ecosystem in which it is produced. Instead of more toxic pesticides, fertilisers or plastic, organic farming encourages biodiversity and leads to the extra soft feel of our products. This leads to higher earnings for farmers with better soil quality and water security, with food crops grown on the same soil in the dry season. Less inputs also means less water, but even organic cotton is still a thirsty crop. So where you grow it matters. The fields that grow the organic cotton for Teemill products are in the North of India, where the monsoons fill reservoirs that supply almost all the water needed.
