The principle behind organic production is to produce products whose manufacturing methods are not harmful to the environment or to the health and wellbeing of people, plants and animals. 
Ecological cotton cultivation in a nutshell: 
biological pest control
organic fertilizing
crop rotation
picked by hand
social responsibility for the farmers and their families
 
Always wonderful to wear

Organic cotton is pleasant and breathable for the skin. It stands up well to washing, which makes it a suitable material for clothes that are washed often. Undyed and unwhitened organic cotton is safe particularly for children with allergies. A newborn’s skin is only about one-fifth the thickness of an adult’s skin. This means it is more sensitive to outside irritants, like clothing colours, whiteners and treatment agents, which are easily absorbed into the body through the skin. Ruskovilla’s organic cotton is safe for the little one’s skin.
