Colorful Standard pride themselves on their transparency and their ethical practices. 100% of their products are made in Portugal by a team of skilled hardworking individuals who the company have now known for years and have built a close relationship with.
"We work under the European Union Labour Law, which focuses on fair employment conditions and informing and consulting workers."
The part I love most about Colorful Standard's practices is because they work transparently. So much so, If you would like to see how they work and the hands behind their colourful pieces the factories are open for visits at any time.
Cotton farming uses more toxic pesticides than any other materials. These chemicals are harming the planet and stripping the land of nutrients, polluting water and putting cotton farmers at risk. Certified organic cotton is far better for the planet. By replacing dangerous chemicals with natural alternatives and classic agriculture techniques, farmers will not be exposed to dangerous levels of toxins. The downsides to this organic method are that farmers will have to plant more plants which will end in a higher water usage for production and take up more land because the crop would not have been genetically modified therefore doesn’t produce the same amount of fibres. Despite the negatives, organic cotton uses 91% less water than normal cotton and releases 45% less CO2 emissions.
