The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification is the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. It consists of high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain – from the harvest of raw materials to environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, and all the way to labelling.
Textile products must contain 70% organic fibres in order to be eligible for GOTS certification. The certification requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Organic Content Standard (OCS) ensures trust in organic content claims. The OCS verifies the presence and amount of Organic Material in a final product. The certification provides a strong chain of custody system from the source of the organic raw material to the final product.
Independent evaluation and verification of Organic Material content claims on products are performed by an accredited third-party Certification Body (CB), ensuring it is transparent, consistent and comprehensive. .
The certification contributes to high and effective product safety. It confirms the human-ecological safety of textile products at all stages of production along the value chain.
