We are working to select raw materials that have been collected and cultivated in a way that imposes as little excessive burden on the earth, plants, animals, and producers as possible. As a result, we choose organic cotton as the material for our cotton products. Unlike ordinary cotton, which requires a large amount of pesticides and chemical fertilizers during cultivation, organic cotton is grown through natural processes on land that has not been treated with agrochemicals or chemical fertilizers for more than three years. Although the production process for organic cotton takes more time and effort than conventional cotton cultivation, and requires suitable climate and land, we believe the benefits to the environment and the health of the producers are well worth it. Since 1999, MUJI has been sourcing organic cotton from various locations worldwide, including India, China, Turkey, and the United States. By choosing organic cotton, we are not only creating high-quality products, but also supporting sustainable and responsible farming practices.
