Global Organic Textile Standard
About Global Organic Textile Standard
GOTS is one of the most trusted ethical certification standards out there, known for its worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. The organization was founded by four prominent organizations: Organic Trade Association (OTA, USA), Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft (IVN, Germany), The Soil Association (UK), and Japan Organic Cotton Association (JOCA, Japan). GOTS defines worldwide recognized requirements that ensure the organic standard of textiles, unifying these standards across countries and stages of production. It verifies the organic status of 70% of textiles, in cotton, hemp, wool, and linen. If you buy from a brand that is certified organic, you can trust that the garments are made with cotton that is ethical and sustainable. With a vision to make organic textiles a part of everyday life. GOTS demands strict requirements throughout the supply chain, for both ecology and labor conditions in the apparel and textile manufacturing industries.
