The Filled Stocking Company Journal

Organic Cotton

New to the Filled Stocking Company collection for 2023, LittleLeaf is a small, family-run business based in Hampshire. This is a business is based on solid values: great products with good design, made ethically and sustainably, without doing harm to others or our planet in the process. LittleLeaf only uses GOTS-certified organic cotton, which is the gold standard for the finest quality organic cotton, fairly made and fairly priced.

LittleLeaf is all about eco fabric. Certified organic cotton is the cotton of yesteryear, when grandparents could hand down cotton bedlinen and baby clothes to the next generation because it was of such good quality. Conventional, non-organic cotton is not like this because the fibres have been broken down by all the pesticide and chemical treatment it undergoes.

If you want to buy organic cotton that is better for you, better for the workers who produce it, and better for the environment in general then please do be sure to look for Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification.

This is the only certification that ensures the organic cotton is grown with consideration for the environment and the people who produce it - ensuring less intensive farming (allowing food and other crops to be grown alongside the cotton) and less water being used to grow it. LittleLeaf products are made in a wholly GOTS certified organic factory, which is solar powered and Fair Trade registered too.

As well as GOTS certification, LittleLeaf organic cotton is also Soil Association certified and this combination is surest way to guarantee that the cotton is genuinely organic, adhering to the strictest rules (and regular inspections) through every stage of production.

So it is not surprising to report that LittleLeaf won the Small Business Britain Net Hero Award in 2023, awarded for being the UK’s most sustainable small business.
