The first Seasalt garment ever designed was our famous Sailor Shirt, and it was made using organic cotton.
From the start we have been committed to using organic cotton for our garments wherever possible to help reduce these damaging environmental impact.
Our commitment followed a visit to small scale farmers around the world. Sophie and Neil met people whose livelihoods depended on cotton and who were finding it difficult to compete with subsidised producers in more developed countries. They set about helping to set organic cotton standards, and in 2005 Seasalt became the first fashion company to have garments certified by the Soil Association.
From early on, the benefits and quality of organic cotton meant we wanted to use it in our collection as much as possible, and soon we became one of the UK’s largest sellers of organic cotton. To this day, it continues to prove to us how soft, breathable and durable organic cotton can be.
From organic cotton seeds, to our organic cotton clothing.
