The Organic Company
The Organic Company is a Danish design company which creates meaningful and tasteful interior textiles from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton
In The Organic Company, we work with organic cotton as it matters. We make thorough design as we believe in the-less-but-better-way-of-living.
Honesty, transparency and an ambitious wish to make a difference is a rock solid foundation for the company, founded by entrepreneur Joy Vasiljev in 2007.
Since then, the company has developed a collection of organic textiles for the home, which includes textiles for the bath, kitchen, children, bags, meditation and blankets.
The products are designed by The Organic Company and, from time to time, co-designed with selected Danish designers.
All products are made of organic cotton and certified with the international organic standard GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
This standard focuses on 2 major areas; environment and social responsibility, and guarantees that all fabrics are free from toxins and heavy metals, and international workers rights are respected.
In short: The Organic Company. Copenhagen based. Design, quality and respect for people and nature are our foundation and our values.
In a time when humanity needs to rethink the future, we consider responsible business as a necessary game changer

The Organic Company sees the day
Joy leaves the field of oil trading at A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S to start The Organic Company. Joy wants the great stuff which is organic AND designed, instead of having to choose between the responsible and the neat stuff. First goods home were cotton pads and buds from a French FAIR TRADE and Organic cotton company - First customers are PureBaby and NatureBaby.
