We chose cotton because it is a biodegradable, renewable, natural resource. It's comfortable, easy to wear and feels soft on your skin.
Across the world 250 million people’s livelihoods are dependent on cotton production. Of these people, many are in the world’s poorest areas and cotton growing contributes to a large part of their economy.
We take a holistic approach to sustainable cotton production considering everything from environmental, to social and economic factors.
Our Portuguese factory work closely with farmers in India who grow cotton in a way that reduces stress on the local environment, giving rural farmers back control over their precious resources and improving the livelihoods and welfare of their farming communities.
Our farmers are supported by NGOs in reducing their water footprint and the amount of pesticides used in the cotton farming process.
“At Fferal, we only use sustainably sourced cotton.”
Fferal is a Peta Approved Vegan Clothing Company and all products are free from animal derivatives, because we believe in protecting our animal friends.
All our garments are certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. This means that every component of the clothing has been tested for harmful substances to ensure that it is harmless in human ecological terms.
We also make use of deadstock fabric, utilising fabric rolls leftover from a discontinued range of garments. Quality cotton that may have otherwise been destined for landfill.
