Francisca Vieira, Natural Cotton Color, at the Maison d'Exceptions show 2/2

“In our region we grow naturally colored cotton, an organic and eco-friendly raw material which doesn’t need chemical dyeing and requires 87% less water than conventional cotton.
As far as the human benefits go, the EMBRAPA (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) determined that I paid the highest price for 1 kg of cotton feathers nationwide. It means that the farmers working for me earn twice as much as their counterparts from conventional agriculture. It is very important to me.”
