What we wanted is Organic!
We take responsibility for the environment and for our children, which means, taking organic production seriously.
Most of our selected brands which we are working with are GOTS certified companies and all their textile production is produced in GOTS certified factories.This is crucial for the environment as well as for our children and their future.
What is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres.It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified.All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria.The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well.A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with minimum social criteria.
The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognised requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
Textile processors and manufacturers are enabled to export their organic fabrics and garments with one certification accepted in all major markets.
GOTS’ social responsibility criteria must be complied with:
- Prohibition of Forced Labour
- Prohibition of Child Labour
- Prohibition of Harassment or Abuse
