I’m always looking for sustainable brands that specialize in simple basics that are just as passionate about slow and clean fashion. And that’s when I came across Organic Basics.
Basics are an important foundation for any wardrobe. I define basics as the core items in your closet that can be used year round. Basics are something that have to be replaced more often than other items in your wardrobe because they’re your “everyday pieces”. The more wear, the more tear.
So let’s dive into what Organic Basics is all about!
Who Are They
Organic Basics designs everyday basics, under garments, and active wear from organic cotton and recycled textiles. What I love about the brand is that they think about sustainability throughout their entire production process. From design, fabric, development, to production they care about the environment and the impact they leave behind from beginning to end.
They handpick every single fabric based on its environmental footprint and lifetime durability. All of the fabrics used are natural, recycled, and biodegradable with the least impact on the environment. Plus, they are GOTS certified which means they only use chemical free cotton
Quality and Workmanship
They only work with factories that also strive to reduce their environmental footprint. Most importantly, the factories are child and forced labor free. The garment workers are in safe conditions, are paid fair wages, and treated with respect.
I received the basic women’s tee in black and the triangle bra in rose nude. My tee is so incredibly soft. What I love about organic cotton is that you really can feel the difference. It’s just as durable as regular cotton, but without all the pesticides.
Now for the bra, I was a little nervous because I’m very busty and typically go for full coverage bras. But the bra is very comfortable and I do feel secure wearing it. The triangle bra has now become by go-to when I just want to be completely comfortable and not deal with an underwire which can feel very uncomfortable by the day.
I really admire a brand that works extremely hard about reducing their carbon footprint to lessen their impact on our environment. But sustainability isn’t just about the environment. It’s about the ethical treatment of the people making our clothes as well. Organic Basics thinks about sustainability in all aspects of their business and I can get behind that.
