Why Organic Cotton?

As we at FEM intimates have been expanding our Organic Cotton Panties line, we would like to give you an overview on the backround and benifts of Organic Cotton.

 

Like organic foods 20­ years ago, the idea of organic cotton is confusing to many of us. It’s taken a little longer to catch on because the correlation isn’t as direct­. We don’t eat cotton fiber (at least we hope you don’t!) However, more people are becoming knowledgeable as to how the organic cotton movement is just as powerful and important as that of organic foods.

 

What is "organic cotton?"

 

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third­-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

 

Benefits

 

• Organic Cotton is Pure and Natural

• Organic Cotton is grown without harmful pesticides and herbicides.

• Organic cotton can not be grown from genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

 

GOTS logo

 

Lots of fashion and textile retailers think it is important that shoppers know how their clothes are made, but sadly many brands spin yarns that hide the truth about their production and working conditions. Unlike food, clothes and textiles can be labelled as organic without being certified. This means that retailers can label items as organic, regardless of organic content. Organic certification is proof that the claims made are backed up. Manufacturers of GOTS-certified cotton must follow a stringent set of rules throughout the supply chain. The supply chain starts with the cotton seeds themselves. Farmers grow the cotton. Mill workers turn the cotton into yarn. Dye house workers bleach the cotton white or dye it the beautiful colors we love. GOTS certification ensures that all workers follow the rules. Testing is performed at each step to ensure the cotton is free of all harmful additives and residues.

 

Our Organic Cotton Panties at FEM intimates are GOTS certified.

Some clothing ideas for children with sensory issues

Some clothing ideas for children with sensory issues 

 

For children with sensory processing issues, certain clothing items may be bothersome. Even tiny tags and seams, which those without sensory sensitivities may not notice at all, can be extremely distracting and upsetting, it can be overwhelming, confusing, and exhausting.

 

Even though there a lot of kids who are particular about what kinds of clothing they wear, what we talking about is way more than a style preference. Instead, it’s about refusing to wear clothing based on the way it feels. If your child is demanding to wear or not wear certain clothing because of a seam, particular fit, or type of fabric, then it’s likely because of their sensory system. Some might say they have sensory issues with clothing.

 

A child may have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), or other diagnoses like ADHD or Autism. But, lots of kids, have a sensory sensitivity to certain types of textures and no diagnosis.

 

Choose soft clothing: You may want to avoid choosing fabrics that are scratchy or stiff, or clothing that has rough edges, tags, or appliquéd designs on it. It may be helpful to use hand-me-downs that have been washed several times as well, as they will lose some of their rough qualities over time.

 

Get rid of tags and seams: These elements of clothing can be especially irritating to those with sensory sensitivities. Many retailers now offer tagless and seamless clothing. However, if this is not easy to find or afford, try clipping tags or placing adhesive bandages over them. At FEM intimates we have the perfect Seamless Bikini Panties for girls that will greatly help a child with sensory issues. They are seamless and tagless and very soft as well.

 

Choose comfortable undergarments: Choose undergarments that are seamless and tagless whenever possible. This will help the child to better deal with other necessary layers that may not be as comfortable. As mentioned above we have the selection of Seamless Boy shorts for girls, that are extremely compatible for children with sensory difficulties.
