We're proud to announce that we now have GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic fabric! Getting this certification was not an easy task. In fact, it took close to two years! GOTS is a global standard aimed at defining the requirements to ensure organic status of textiles through environmentally and socially responsible manuafcturing to labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the end consumer.

Eco-friendly, sustainable and ethical are words that have become part of the permanent lexicon of consumers, designers and retailers in recent years. In the smallest boutiques and in mass department stores consumers are looking for ethical fashion choices that complement their commitment to helping the planet. At Culturata we feel a collective urgency - as individuals and as a company - to make strides toward a more ecologically responsible future. Our commitment to sartorial craftsmanship is coupled with environmentally friendly practices and fabrics. Our fabrics are certified by Oeko Tex (the international standard for testing and certification of textiles) and are Zero Impact. Zero Impact by LifeGate is the first European project that carries out the intent of the Kyoto Protocol and is a platform for the eco-cultural world.

Culturata has changed and will from now on be a forum for inspiration, information and interpretation. Our new blog is based on the belief that the customer, the retailer and the designer all appreciate one another and want to be part of an interactive community. As inspiration is often not a one way street, interaction has become a vital part of this new forum. It derives from the thought that communication is critical to understanding our times. So, that is exactly what we have done: we have opened up. We will be sharing our experiences with you. Look for images, videos, press, showroom updates, show dates, stockists and more.
Welcome to Culturata's new blog, we hope you will be as excited as we are.

Sustainability is the way of the future. Having launched the first organic men's dress shirt in North America was a huge endeavour. Research and production worked hand in hand to develop this beautiful product for the last 2 years and we are proud to bring it to market. We are developing many more socially responsible initiatives and are excited to share these with you.
