Fairtrade and organic cotton sheet sets and towels are now available from Takasa, a socially and environmentally responsible retail business, selling homewares that are organic as well as ethically sourced and manufactured.
Takasa is based in Vancouver and has roots in India and Kenya. The company’s name is taken from a Swahili word meaning “to purify, cleanse, make bright.” This is what they aim to bring to your home and lifestyle through the use of Fairtrade and organic cotton, most of which is sourced from Chetna Organic in India. Chetna is an organization of thousands of small-scale cotton farmers who receive at least the Fairtrade Minimum Price, which is meant to provide a sustainable income. In addition, they receive the Fairtrade Premium which is often used for on-farm improvements like equipment and tools to increase productivity, as well as community projects such as warehouses and processing mills.
With a passion for exceptionally high quality materials and socially conscious manufacturing processes, Takasa is focused on thoughtfully designed premium products for those who value beauty, durability and sustainability. “Our promise to meet the highest organic and ethical certifications ensures that not only will our customers receive healthier, higher quality products that are free of harmful dyes and chemicals – they’ll also be making a difference in the lives of people and planet alike.”
A wide range of bedding, towels and gift sets can be ordered now from takasa.ca.
