First designs to be manufactured of organic cotton by the local company I've started working with. Although I'm far below their minimum quantities, they are interested in sat-su-ma since it's the very first plant-dyed clothing brand in my country -and one of a few in the world. They mostly manufacture GOTS certified organic clothing with accountability for fair wages and standardised safe working conditions. They only work with well-known organic clothing brands from Europe, like many other organic cotton manufacturers in Turkey, since organic cotton is more expensive than its conventional counterparts, remarkably. This makes it a challenge for independent Turkish designers and small brands to work with organic cotton because it's hard to find a supplier that you can buy in small batches. They export them all. So, as a small brand owner, I really appreciate that I had the opportunity to work with one of them.
