The cotton is naturally grown with the color, without the use of additives or colorants—there is no need for dyeing. The variety was developed by Cotton EMBRAPA through agroecologic farming. In this system, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other industrial chemical products capable of polluting the soil and water may not be used. Therefore, the farmer does not handle toxic chemicals harmful to their health and the environment.
The color cotton from Paraíba, in northeastern Brazil, is a product of family farming, mainly planted in settlements and communities. It is grown with guaranteed purchase by Santa Luzia Hammocks and Textiles directly from the farmer, with no middlemen interference, which ensures a fair price for both the farmer and the buyer.
