The cotton for Level Collective sweaters is harvested from GOTS certified organic cotton farms in India. They choose organic cotton because it uses less water and is grown without the harmful pesticides, herbicides and insecticides used in the growth of conventional cotton. This cotton is then combined with recycled plastic bottles to ensure the sweaters hold their shape.

This agent visit factories daily during production to monitor working conditions and ensure nothing is subcontracted out to un-regulated factories. Each of the factories is also independently audited by the Fair Wear Foundation and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
