Danish design meets premium, organic cotton in The Organic Company, which creates meaningful and tasteful interior textiles made for everyday living.

Founder Story

The Organic Company was founded in Copenhagen in 2007 by Joy Vasiljev, who said her reason for launching the company was that she “just had to.” She was concerned about our environment’s health, and knew she wasn’t alone in looking for great products that excelled at both sustainable production and beautiful design. So she teamed up with skilled artists and technicians and got to work creating those products herself. The rest, of course, is history.

Impact Story

All products are GOTS-certified, meaning that every step in the production process for products upholds the highest environmental and social standards. All products are made using premium organic cotton, a fabric that requires 91% less water to produce than conventional cotton. The growth and processing of organic cotton also produces 94% less greenhouse gases, and no heavy metals or pesticides are used during production.

Considering that cotton is the biggest crop grown around the world, sourcing and processing it sustainably is incredibly important — and choosing GOTS-certified textiles makes a huge difference in individuals’ environmental impact. The Organic Company also uses recycled plastic and recycled or FSC-certified paper for its packaging.

The Organic Company also believes in only creating products that meet a need, solve a problem, or lift a category — which is where their innovative design comes into play. They believe in creating products that are beautiful, endlessly functional, and durable enough to last for years.
