A picture profile
The Cotton used in the production of ekkos is sourced from cotton growers worldwide via the World Market. All Australian grown cotton is sold onto the world market. more
In the past some cotton growing practices have been environmentally unsound leading to some destruction and devastation of cotton growing fields and the surrounding water tables. Today’s cotton industry learnt from its past and developed environmentally sustainable practices which are equal to and in many case less impacting than other commercially grown crops.
Cotton is ginned and baled in the Country that it is grown. The Ginning process separates the cotton fibre from the seed, leafs, stems and trash. Once bailed it he cotton is shipped to mills around the world for processing.
While the ginning process removes some of the trash and dirt from the cotton it is the combing and carding processes that clean and prepare the cotton for use in traditional spinning and weaving textiles and the more recent non-woven applications.
During the non-woven process the carded cotton fibre is processed through a series of processes including hydro jet entanglement and roller compressing to form the spun-lace non-woven cloth.
Once formed the Spun-lace cotton cloth is folded, cut rolled and compressed to become your Ekko magic wipes.
By choosing to use ekko you are actively reducing urban waste.
