Sourcing Organic Cotton Fabric in Vietnam

Short Answer: Starting this year our merchandising team decided to take on Organic Cotton. We have had many inquiries in the past but since the quantities are usually low and the headache is high we stayed away from Organic Cotton. Now we are ready for the challenge. The biggest challenge is proving that our suppliers are indeed giving us organically grown cotton. My question for Sim is how do we guarantee
What exactly is Organic Cotton Fabric?

Organic cotton is grown using No synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, and No Genetically Modified cotton seeds (GMO). Organic fertilisers (such as compost) and plant-based pest management products (such as neem or garlic extract) are used. However, organic agriculture is not merely about replacing synthetic inputs with natural ones. The major principle is to restore a natural balance within the farm, with healthy soils, rich in organic matter. In such an environment, the pests are not systematically destroyed by poisons but are kept under control by their predators, just as they are in nature. Source
