Farming toxic-free T-shirts
Ramón Álvarez, better known as ‘Dosi’ grows a super special high-quality strain of cotton named Pima, all toxic-free... This cotton goodness makes the finest quality garments and is especially loved in Japan and highly valued in Europe. After the birth of his first child 25 years ago, Dosi decided to make the switch from chemical-heavy conventional cotton farming to organic. And while making the switch from conventional to organic farming may have initially been challenging, his philosophy that ‘everything in nature takes time’ has proven to be successful for him and his family, as well as the local economy and environment.
