Coyuchi uses only 100% certified organic cotton in their linens and has been recognized with the United Nations Second Annual Fashion Industry Award for Environmental Excellence. Every fiber of cotton is produced in accordance set forth by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM). Organic cotton is grown rotationally and alongside maize, sesame, sorghum and chiles intercropped with nitrogen-fixing plants such as lentils and chickpeas. Some of these plates serve as barriers and repel pests.
