At SÖKTAŞ, we recognize the value and the inherent resilience of interconnected ecosystems. Through employing centuries long regenerative practices, we seek to undo the negative environmental effects of industrial agriculture.
Restore and Revitalize
Regenerative systems restore and revitalize soil health, sequester carbon emissions and combat climate change.
Alignment with Natural Cycles
Ushers in a multitude of additional and interrelated co-benefits related to biodiversity, water conservation and quality, reduction in greenhouse emissions, and the improving of livelihoods.
Production requires deep-tilling, high-water consumption, and excessive use of chemicals and pesticides.
Long Term Effects
Its long term effects are disastrous for the atmosphere, the waterways, the fields and the farmers who work them.
With regenerative farming, the cycle is reversed.
Blanket in the Off-Season.
In our fields, we employ proprietary no-till/no-plough machinery, and specialized cover crops that act as a blanket in the off-season.
Non-GMO Cotton Seeds
This way, carbon, moisture and the nutrients in the soil remain undisturbed and are reutilized by specially treated non-GMO cotton seeds.
For us at SÖKTAŞ, cultivating Regenerative Cotton requires a holistic, place-based, systems approach.
It is not a straightforward, one-size-fits-all set of practices. We work in close collaboration with leading researchers in the field, and are constantly experimenting and refining our approach.
The Next Phase
With its unique two-century-old agriculture heritage, and its fifty-year expertise in yarn and fabric production, SÖKTAŞ is proud to lead this next phase in the development of cotton fabrics.
The Way Forward…
We truly believe that innovation motivated by the tenets of sustainable production and environmental care, is the only way forward.
