Care

caring for organic cotton

can be washed by hand or with a washing machine (no warmer than 30 degrees if you want to make sure it does not shrink). you should not dry your cotton piece in a tumble dryer as it can shrink. you can remove stains with stain removers and iron as you please. important: never iron velvet! to iron velvet pieces, turn inside out.

what is organic cotton?

cotton is a true fabric classic. it can be worn as a t-shirt, socks, jeans and much more. cotton grows soft and fluffy around the seeds of cotton plants. it does not contain any synthetic compounds and is a very old fabric that has already been used many years ago. 

why love organic cotton?

cotton is super versatile - from a simple t-shirt to knit pants this fabric can do it all! a true classic than can easily be dyed and taken care of.

organic cotton production

1kg of organic cotton needs 8500l of water vs. conventional cotton needing 11500l. the conventional cotton industry is not a very pretty business. make sure to buy as organic as possible - organic cotton uses less water, pesticides, fertilizers, defoliants and growth regulators and is not grown in a monoculture. 

Production

1. design

jan n june's founders anna and jula still do all of the design work themselves. they are mastering that challenge, despite living in two different countries. luckily they're pros at long-distance teamwork.

so the design process is split between hamburg and dubai.

2. raw material
since the average cotton production is a pretty dirty business, jan n june only use organic and recycled cotton.
if you wanna know more about the ecological benefits, compared to regular cotton, click jan and june's article here.

the cotton is grown in turkey.

3. yarn production

no matter which fibers we are talking about, they have to be spun into a yarn for further production steps and dyed.

the dying takes place in portugal.

4. fabric production

the next step of jan n june's supply chain is to weave the yarn into a fabric.
the fabric production is located in barcelos, portugal.

5. manufacturing

that's where all the magic happens!
jan n june's manufacturers receive the patterns, fabrics, and other components like buttons or zippers and make them into a garment.

this piece is made in wroclaw, poland.

6. distribution

jan n june ships the products to us in one big shipment. we split our stock into our store and our little storage.

we send out our orders via swiss post.
