Driving positive environmental impact is at the heart of TERRY. We know that Mother Nature takes care of us when we take care of her, which is why TERRY has committed to producing garments of the highest social and environmental quality. With GOTS certification & OEKO-TEX Standard certification, our custom woven towelling are all made from 100% organic cotton.
Toxins used in the conventional cotton supply chain are harmful for farmers, workers, consumers and our ecosystems. Unlike conventionally grown cotton, which uses more insecticides than any other crop grown in the world, organic cotton eliminates the use of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Unfortunately, only 1% of cotton grown worldwide is organic.
By supporting the purchase of a product made with 100% organic cotton, your helping shift our industry towards a more sustainable and regenerative future.
Terry is carefully and consciously designed with pre and post swim moments in mind and is delicately constructed in Terry’s signature 100% GOTS Certified organic Cotton Double-sided Towelling. Organic cotton is healthier for you, the farmers who produce it and the environment.
Terry’s materials have met a clearly defined range of criteria to determine they are sustainable, ethical and fairly produced without the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers, and in almost all cases it's also harvested completely by hand, which reduces its carbon footprint.
TERRY’s GOTS Organic cotton is sourced from Turkey, Turkish cotton is a premium quality cotton grown exclusively in the warm climate of the Aegean part of Turkey. It is a long fiber which means fewer joins while making the thread. These fewer joins mean the fibers are stronger and softer than regular cotton, actually these threads become softer and more absorbent with each additional washing.
The collection is also OEKO-Tex verified, this means every component in the manufacture of the finished product is tested for pesticides and other harmful human substances.
OKEO-Tex verified invovles testing the material of the garment, as well as the thread used, any buttons, poppers or other fastenings, dyes or other treatments used in the production process.
This certification ensures that the product has been tested for harmful substances from the beginning raw materials, through to the finished article, and found to be 100% harmless to human health.
OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 ~ exclusively produced from materials certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.
WASTE & CARE
TERRY is committed to continually striving for the fairest, safest and healthy working conditions possible whilst minimizing our environmental footprint. TERRY has taken the time to find suppliers that align with our ethos and values of transparency and sustainability. In a market saturated with an ethos of excess consumption, TERRY hopes to inspire consumers to choose well and buy less. This is why we custom make each individual product to order, woven with the highest quality organic cotton, ensuring the longest lifespan possible and no waste .
On top of that! Our organic cotton is more resistant to shrinkage, discolouration and is irritation free. All online orders are packed in compostable satchels for our smaller items and recycled cardboard boxes for our larger ones. These are just some of the steps that we will continue to make in an effort to eliminate the use of any unnecessary packaging.
