Avanti Inc, began working with organic cotton in the 1990's when the term “organic” was not yet familiar to most people, and very few knew about anything about organic cotton. From the beginning, the Japanese textile firm focused on importing organically grown raw cotton and, producing and selling yarn, fabric and finished goods of consistent quality.

Cultivation of Organic Cotton

Avanti imports strictly selected organic cotton from all over the world. Of course, every field clears the strict criteria. Organic cotton has been cultivated in the field, free from pesticides or organic fertilizer for more than three years. Cow manure is used as an organic fertilizer for the soil of organic cotton field. This makes it rich with bacteria, and the soil will become soft with a lot of nutrition. The farmer touches the soil, smells it and sometimes licks it. He always checks if the soil is healthy. For the farmer, managing soil is also the most important work. In addition, we don’t allow any kind of cotton seed to be genetically recombined. This is because unlike selective breeding, gene recombination is a technology to create a new species of living organisms. We are always thinking about the future of the earth, aiming for the share of organic cotton to become 10% of the cotton in the whole world.

Social Impact

People want the things that touch their skin everyday to be safe and reliable. This is such a key factor that consumers tend to forget, or find difficult to follow within their modern lifestyle choices with all of these new technologies that are able to produce lots of material at a fast rate.  

In our generation as well as our children's we hope that a sustainable organic lifestyle will be the norm. It is vital that we use our common sense so that we can return to a way of life that is grateful for nature’s blessings. Avanti keeps this in the forefront of their minds and keep a promise to only produce the best quality materials.
