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.
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 OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished and finished textile products at all levels of processing, including accessory materials used. Tests conducted by the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 are comprehensive and has a strict catalogue of measures, with several hundred regulated individual substances.
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.
