Organic Cotton 有機棉

More organically-grown cotton in our clothing

Cotton is one of the world’s most sprayed crops, and fertilisers and pesticides are harmful to people, animals and nature. Early on, Fjällräven began looking for alternatives and already in 1994 we launched a special organic line of cotton tricot garments marked with a green arctic fox. Now all our cotton t-shirts have been made from organic cotton for many years and we are continuously increasing the amount of organic cotton used in our equipment, without this compromising our demands on durability.

Equally high functionality demands

Only a small amount of cotton is grown organically and availability of the raw material has varied. The quality of organic cotton has also varied, but today we can acquire a larger amount of organic cotton that has the fibre length required for even our most durable equipment.

From this long-fibred organic cotton, blended with recycled polyester, we make G-1000 Eco, our “green” version of the tried and tested durable G-1000 fabric. It is worth mentioning that G-1000 in all its versions is an environmentally smart choice thanks to its long lifespan. To this, G-1000 Eco adds an extra benefit for the environment.

Water consumption – a reason to look for alternatives

Cotton farming requires a lot of water, something that unfortunately also applies to organic methods. This is a drawback as cotton is grown in climates where access to water is often limited.

Water consumption is one argument for replacing cotton with other materials where this is possible. This is one of the reasons – in addition to functionality – behind us also producing clothing in lyocell/tencel©, viscose made from bamboo, hemp, linen etc.

服飾採用更多有機棉

棉花是世界上噴灑藥物最多的農作物之一,肥料和殺蟲劑都會危害人體、動物和大自然。Fjällräven早前開始尋找安全的替代品,而在1994年我們已經推出一系列特殊的有機棉經編服飾,以綠色北極狐作為標誌。我們的棉質T恤全面採用有機棉已有許多年,正持續將有機棉擴大運用到其他裝備上面,但是絕不因此犧牲它們的耐用性。

維持一貫高功能性的要求

只有少數棉花是採用有機種植,要取得這種原料時難時易,品質也不一,不過我們現在對這種有機棉已經可以取得較大的供應量,這些有機棉的纖維長度甚至能符合我們最耐久裝備的纖維要求。

我們用這種長纖維有機棉與再生的聚脂纖維混紡,創造出G-1000 Eco這種布料,是已被證實耐用的G-1000布料的「環保」版本。值得一提的是,G-1000的使用壽命很長,因此不管哪一種G-1000都是環保的聰明選擇,G-1000 Eco算是錦上添花,對環境更有益。

耗水量——必須尋求替代品的原因

棉耕是一種大量耗水的農業,很可惜有機耕種也不例外,這對於棉花生長的氣候多半缺乏豐富的雨水來說是一個不利的條件。

基於耗水量的緣故,可以的話應該盡量用其他材質來取代棉花,這也是我們開始採用tencel©、來自竹子的嫘縈、麻、亞麻等材質的背後原因之一,當然另外還有功能上的因素。
