What Makes Our Cotton Different

All of the cotton that we use at Under the Nile is not just Organic – it’s Biodynamic.


A step up from traditional organic farming - it means that all of our cotton is ORGANIC in its purest form.


We like to call it farming 202.


 

WHAT IS BIODYNAMIC FARMING?


It is essentially the treatment of animals, crops and soil

as a single system in a sustainable way.

 

THE FARM IS COMPLETELY SELF SUSTAINING

BIODYNAMIC vs ORGANIC

  • Organic farming permits imported fertilizers, whereas biodynamic farming addresses its needs from within the farming system.

  • Soil fertility within biodynamic farms is delivered through nutrient rich humus created from integrating livestock and rotating crops. 

  • Pesticides are not required for biodynamic farms as its biologically diverse habitat encourages predator prey relationships.

    The humus in the soil is also naturally resistant to insects and disease

  • NOP (National Organic Program) in the US is crop focused, allowing for designated parcels to be certified.

    Biodynamic is farm focused, and requires the entire farm to be certified.

Only a few farmers around the world apply a biodynamic approach to growing cotton. Why? Because it’s hard. It takes discipline and planning and most important of all, care.


That’s us.

And why we go beyond organic in producing the best cotton on the planet.
