Established in 2002, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is one of the most well recognised certifications for natural fibres. It ensures that textiles are produced and treated organically throughout the entire value chain: From the harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling and chemical free colouring. All suppliers in the value chain are visited by inspectors on a regular basis. This provides a credible assurance to the consumer that the product is 100% organic.
A company participating in the GOTS certification scheme must work in compliance with all criteria of the standard. That means that every GOTS certified product fulfills the same standards.
