The ALAS collection "Mountain of Light" draws inspiration from the place in which the garments are made, a country of varied landscapes, ancient cultures and textile traditions: India. These shorts feature a soft elastic waistband, sea blue drawstring and our colourful "Coconut" print.
Made from GOTS certified organic cotton jersey, and was printed and dyed using AZO and formaldehyde free inks. The production process for conventional (non-organic) cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop, 25% of the world's total usage, in fact. Pesticides contaminate local waterways, destroying the environment and harming animals. Pests build a resistance to the chemicals used, so new pesticides are continuously developed, resulting in greater pesticide use and perpetually increasing costs for farmers.In addition to the environmental factors, food and water supplies can also be contaminated from runoff which in turn can create suffering through disease, illness and birth defects in local communities.
