Organic isn’t just a trend in the textile world—it’s a commitment to a cleaner, fairer planet.

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) stands at the forefront, setting rigorous ecological and social standards for textiles made from organic fibers.

Let’s unravel how this certification impacts the textile landscape and its stakeholders.

What is the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)?

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is one of the world’s leading textile processing standards for textiles made from organic fibers.

It certifies textiles from the harvesting of raw materials through their journey of environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing to the final labeling.

To earn GOTS certification, a product must contain at least 70% certified organic fibers, ensuring textiles meet stringent organic and ethical benchmarks.

Benefits of GOTS Certification

GOTS certification offers a multitude of benefits that extend well beyond the simple assurance of organic status, including the following:

  1. Field to Fashion Integrity: Ensures textiles maintain organic status from the soil to the store.
  2. Environmental Care: Uses only approved ecological dyes and chemicals, upholding strict environmental criteria.
  3. Social Responsibility: Guarantees fair conditions and compliance with social criteria across the supply chain.
  4. Consumer Confidence: Offers assurance of both ecological and social integrity in purchased products.

Essentially, every GOTS-certified thread protects the environment and strengthens social ties, marking a standard for mindful consumers and producers.
