Ethical Distributor 100% Organic Yoga Clothing Made With Love In India.
Ayam Organics was founded in 2012 by Ute Ferrao in South Goa, India.
The seeds were sown one summer when the German entrepreneur, who was based in India, visited her home with her children. A close friend of hers complained about how difficult it is to find organic cotton leggings in Europe. At that time, the concept of Ayam Organics was born, which offers comfortable, ecological and 100% natural casual clothing not only for yoga practice.
Ayam's Organic Cotton - why and how?
No damage to the environment or workers 2.4% of the world’s crop land is planted with cotton and yet it accounts for 24% and 11% of the global sales of insecticide and pesticides respectively. Unsafe use of agricultural chemicals has severe health impacts on workers in the field and on ecosystems that receive excess doses that run-off from farms.
The use of genetically-modified cotton varieties has increased remarkably in recent years reaching 20% (67.7 million ha) of the global crop area in 2002.
No Unsustainable Agricultural Practices
Unsustainable cotton farming, with massive inputs of water and pesticides, has already been responsible for the destruction of large-scale ecosystems such as the Aral Sea in central Asia and the deteriorating health and livelihoods of people living there.
In short, not only is the cotton we use sustainably and organically grown, but everything ancillary like push buttons, threads, mordents, dyes, machine oils, and packaging is sourced extremely carefully too. We are happy to be free of heavy metals, phalates PVC and other pollutants. And finally the end product is stored carefully away from accidental contaminants.
