Green Cotton

Choose to make a difference.

In the late 1980s, Danish textile company Novotex founded the Green Cotton brand. Nearly thirty years later, they are internationally renowned as a company with a premier environmental management system.

Green Cotton production systems are based upon a life-cycle philosophy: from the growing cotton plant to the finished product, each article of clothing must have as little impact on people and the environment as possible. As a company, Green Cotton painstakingly considers the environmental consequences of every business decision they make, and their production methods ensure that each step of textile and clothing production encourages sustainability and minimizes its impact on the environment.

All Green Cotton production systems are documented and certified. Green Cotton is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, which are international standards for quality management and environmental management systems.

Understanding that clothing needs to be fashionable as well as environmentally friendly in order to be appealing, Green Cotton applies equally high standards to the quality and aesthetics of their textiles. As described by their design manager, "My priority is to combine the newest fashion ideas with comfort, quality, a good fit and utility... As our founder once said, if red is in fashion, then red it has to be — but with the least possible impact on the environment."

Garnet Hill began working with Novotex in 1993, offering Green Cotton products in our catalogs and online. We are proud to have Green Cotton® as a partner. In 2005 we recognized Green Cotton for their excellence with our True North Vendor of the Year Award.

At Garnet Hill we use this high-quality, environmentally responsible fabric for much of our women's sleepwear, children's clothing and women's clothing. Many of our customer favorites are made of Green Cotton knit — including our bestselling Asian Wrap Pajamas.

Look for the Green Cotton name throughout the Garnet Hill website and catalog, and experience the exquisite softness and incredible durability of Green Cotton for yourself. By choosing products made of Green Cotton, you are making a difference, and a statement about your concern for the planet.
