All Colourful Standard garments are made from 100% organic cotton, which means cotton that’s grown without genetically modified seeds. This can be grown with the help of natural rainwater, requiring no harmful chemicals in the process. By using organic, this reduces the use of pesticides and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 94%, and the brand also prides itself on using environmentally friendly colour dyes, and 100% recycled merino wool. Their designs don’t follow the usual seasonal trends and instead the range is made to be full of timeless classics, distinct from the fast fashion cycle.
