Global Organic Textile Standard
GOTS was developed as a seal of quality by the world's leading textile associations and identifies ecologically and socially responsible textiles made from natural fibers.
The GOTS seal is available in two different versions. The label "bio" is awarded to products with a cotton content of at least 95%.
The second GOTS seal with the indication "Made from organic" - stands for the certification of products with a lower percentage of organic cotton.
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. A GOTS-certified product, for example, must consist of at least 90% pure natural fibers and may contain a maximum of 10% synthetic fibers or viscose, as is usually 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, additives and finishing processes, which among other things must not contain any heavy metals. As a rule, ingredients, accessories and yarns must also be made of natural materials and can therefore only be used to a limited extent.
