We recently discovered a new, sustainable way to decorate, courtesy of Canada’s first-ever manufacturer of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Fairtrade Cotton certified homewares, and our living spaces are loving it!
Takasa Lifestyle Company Inc. has launched its Canadian website, providing gorgeous ethical and sustainable bed and bath linens—plus beautiful things for baby, too—for Canucks across the country. Committed to engaging in ethical manufacturing practices and using Fairtrade-certified cotton, Takasa works to improve the lives of everyone involved in the supply chain, including its farmer partners, who receive a fair and stable price for their cotton. “Takasa has undergone the rigorous certification process for both GOTS and Fairtrade because we want our customers to be sure that they are making a mindful, socially conscious choice when choosing our products,” says founder Ruby Rakhra. “We’re confident our brand-new Canadian website will help us to reach a breadth of consumers who are interested in Fairtrade Cotton-certified homewares.”
In fact, working with Green Story, Takasa has calculated the environmental impact of its entire supply chain, resulting in savings of thousands of litres of water, several hundred kilos of CO2 and thousands of hectares of farmland spared from harmful pesticides. As an example, alone, Takasa’s typical cotton bed sheet set (from $239 and available in three stunning shades and two cotton weaves) saves more than 3,000 litres of water—equivalent to more than 1,600 days of drinking water! As if that’s not enough, Takasa has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for each order received.
As for the products, they’re a hit with celeb designers like HGTV’s Karin Bennett, who says, “I tried the brand’s bed linens and I have to say I am in love. Not only are these linens so soft but they are also safe for my family.”
