Global Organic Textile Standard
GOTS was developed by leading global textile associations as a seal of quality and identifies ecologically and socially responsible textiles made from natural fibers.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a globally recognized standard that places the highest demands on textiles in order to evaluate them as genuine and consistent natural textiles. For example, a GOTS-certified product must consist of at least 90% pure natural fibers and may contain a maximum of 10% synthetic fibers or viscose, such as is otherwise used for seams, cuffs or labels. In addition, at least 70% of the natural fibers must come from plants or animals from controlled organic farming. There are also strict requirements for dyes, auxiliaries and finishing processes, which must not contain any heavy metals, among other things. Ingredients, accessories and yarns must also be made from natural materials and can therefore only be used to a limited extent. More info about the GOTS certificate can be found on the official website.
Our products are partly tested and certified by IMO (until 30.06.2017) and partly by CERES (from 01.07.2017). The certificates differ in the respective test number under the GOTS logo. In addition, there is a gradation regarding the proportion of organic cotton. The label "organic" is awarded to products with a cotton content of at least 95%. "Made from organic" - on the other hand, stands for the certification of products that have a lower organic cotton content.
