Organic cotton is never grown with synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or defoliants, nor is it genetically modified in any way.

What Customers Are Saying
Another Great Item - This is a great shirt for just about anything, including casual days at work. It has a nice clean look to it and the fit seems more slim than relaxed. The sleeves are a proper length, but seem kind of snug in the forearms (which is actually kind of nice if you wear it climbing). I'm 5 foot 10 inches in height and weigh140 lbs and the medium fits perfectly. I will most likely order a second color since this is such a versatile shirt. Get one!
