A cotton partner that goes way beyond organic.
For our organic pima cotton, we work with a family-owned company in Peru that's been a pioneer in the production and promotion of organic cotton for over thirty years.
This company is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which is the most rigorous standard in the world since it involves every step in the transformation of raw materials. Think cotton that you can trace right down to the farm in Peru and to the worker who handpicked the cotton.
To say our cotton partner lives and breathes organic cotton would be an understatement. But "organic" is only part of the story. Our partner is also certified by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
As the WFTO website states, "We are the global community of social enterprises that fully practice Fair Trade. Our Guarantee System verifies that our members are truly Fair Trade Enterprises. This means they pioneer models of business that put people and planet first."
People and the planet first. Values that we share at Misha & Puff as well.

Full transparency regarding when and how we use organic pima cotton.
We love shining the spotlight on our artisan partners, but we don't want to mislead people into thinking that the cotton we use is always organic. It isn't. Currently, only our "cut and sew" products (rather than our knits) use 100% organic pima cotton. To understand why, take a deeper dive into our pima cotton page.
