In 1846, British army officer Sir Harry Lumsden decided to dye the white military uniforms khaki, a colour made official in 1884. Though originally a military garment used during colonial times, the term «chino» dates back to the beginning of the twentieth-century.
Then made in Manchester, England, the trousers were sold by Chinese merchants to American servicemen in the Philippines. The term «chino» stems from the Spanish words for «Chinese trousers», or «pantalones chinos». After the war, the trousers were made popular in the United States thanks to the servicemen returning home wearing their chino trousers.

Organic cotton certified GOTS
Farmed without GMOs, nor pesticides or chemical fertilisers (agricultural insecticides are replaced by natural fertilisers such as compost, which helps maintain healthy and sustainably productive soil), organic cotton also requires minimal watering since intensive irrigation is not needed.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres comprising of major social and economical aspects. The broad range of criteria and requirements ensures the organic nature of the textiles, from the harvesting of the raw materials to the manufacturing, the packaging, the labelling and the distribution.
On a social level, the GOTS label asks businesses to inform their employees of the contents of the minimal social criteria while promising them safe and hygienic working conditions. A non-discrimination clause, the prohibition of child labour, the prohibition of violent or inhumane treatment, an ethical code of conduct, as well as decent working conditions and living wages are all required by the certification scheme.
