Ever wondered what’s in your elastic? The answer is usually some form of plastic, but not me - I’m different. I am the world's first ecologically sound elastic. I am biodegradable, recyclable, plastic-free, vegan and made of GOTS organic cotton and natural rubber free from child labour.

All these exceptional characteristics make me super soft and pliable but also very functional. I am of the highest quality and generally have a longer lifespan than conventional elastic. I’m just better.

Why I'm Better

Organic Cotton is a more sustainable and ethical alternative to conventional cotton. It is grown without pesticides from non-genetically modified seeds, it requires less water and avoids harmful chemicals increasing soil fertility. This not only benefits the land but worker's health improves in turn benefiting the larger community. And organisations like GOTS have taken a holistic approach to improve all stages of producing organic textiles.
