Volcom, in partnership with the social enterprise CottonConnect, is launching Farm to Yarn – a socially conscious raw materials initiative in India that features certified organic cotton that’s traceable back to the program’s farmers and that provides social and professional education programs for the farmers and the women in the farming villages of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, where the cotton was sourced.
Launching in Spring 2019, the products are the result of a multi-year commitment that Volcom has made to this partnership, further enhancing and building upon the organic cotton t-shirt range they’ve been selling for years.
Farm to Yan is a program that’s more than just organic cotton. The full story with videos is available at www.volcom.com/farmtoyarn.

We were born to chase what we are true to. It’s not that we want to... WE HAVE TO. We have a vision that turns obstacles into opportunity, a creative courage to tempt the impossible... And embrace the strange.
Telling us to push furtherâ€¦To try again. Endlessly seeking elevation, we are all connected by this same internal force. Forever we chase that intoxicating moment when our vision is realized... The world around us goes quiet... And for brief moments, we are more than alive.
