Why buy a certified organic cotton cheesecloth?
Well, cotton covers 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land but uses over 16% of the world’s insecticides. The use of child labour in cotton harvesting is also a significant issue. Our goal was to sell a cloth that was free of both and also worked brilliantly.
We started by finding a certified organic cotton farm. Next, an accredited textile mill to weave the fibres in their raw state, with no bleaches or chemical sizing (they thought we were crazy), to the best warp and weft (that is thread count speak) for optimum draining of curds and preserves.
