Certifications & Testing


Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified
This organization established comprehensive rules for ecological and socially responsible textile production. A GOTS certification ensures the organic status of textiles from harvesting of raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, and then all the way to labeling in order to provide credible assurance to the consumer.

Since its inception in 2006, it's gained international recognition, enabling processors and manufacturers to supply their organic textiles with one certification, which is accepted in all major markets.

GOTS's logo and labeling system makes certification holders visible not only on the shelves of natural textile shops, but also in large-scale retail stores and brand dealers as well.
