Keeping it green
Our raw materials are sourced from suppliers who use sustainable farming and production processes. This means they avoid the use of chemicals, hormones and preservatives which damage the Earth and are harmful to people. Pesticides and fertilizers used to grow non-organic cotton have an extraordinary impact on the Earth and on those who work it. That's why Freeset sources GOTS certified 100% organic cotton for its t-shirts. The cotton is also dyed using a 100% organic process.
In our Kolkata facility, we use only water-based ink for screen printing, avoiding harmful petro-chemicals and compounds.
