Durable Organic Cotton is a closely woven, particularly robust cotton fabric made from GOTS certified organic cotton. If the fabric becomes wet, the fibers expand slightly and seal the intersecting thread points. This natural barrier to rain eliminates the need for a wind and waterproof membrane while providing exceptional breathability.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) regulates ecological and social criteria throughout the entire production process. As a renewable natural fiber, it is cultivated without chemical fertilizers, without pesticides, and with lower water consumption than conventional methods. Another crucial environmental bonus: the fabric isn’t dyed, but rather printed on one side in Germany – saving large quantities of water. We use Durable Organic Cotton in our Green Shape Core Collection’s 3-layer jackets and vests as well as for the primary material of the two backpacks.
