The Girona based company is a renowned organic cotton brand that offers beautiful, soft and comfortable apparel that is healthy for the skin because everything is made from a raw cotton yarn that is 100% naturally grown and coloured from its seed.

Thousands of years ago it used to grow in many different colours, following their motto ‘Natural Thinking’, Organic Cotton Colours have been recovering, for more than 25 years, the traditional perennial Moco cotton, a variety which was on the point of disappearing during the ‘cotton crisis’ of the 1980s. Organic Cotton Colours has its own cotton growing project in Brazil involving more than 450 growers and their families in order to control the entire production process and the total purity of the cotton.
