The GOTS-certificate: Shortcut for ‘green’ textile
More and more sustainable designers are choosing for GOTS-certified fabrics. Not without reason, because with the GOTS label you are assured of fabrics that have been produced in an environmentally as well as socially responsible way. GOTS stands for 'Global Organic Textile Standard'. The name says it all: this is an independent quality label for organically grown fabrics. The GOTS quality label is used worldwide for clothing and textiles.
GOTS label: ecological and social conditions
Anyone wishing to carry the GOTS label of approval must meet strict conditions. Various ecological and social conditions are imposed on production, such as: no chemicals, sustainable energy supply, safe working conditions and control of the entire chain.
There are two variants of the GOTS label: 70% derived from biological material ('Made with organic') or 95% biological material ('Organic').
In order to ensure the credibility of the label, an independent organisation monitors if the requirements are pursued.
