Global Organic Textile Standard
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standard setters to define worldwide recognized requirements for organic textiles. From the harvesting of raw materials and environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing to labeling, textiles certified to GOTS provide a credible assurance to the consumer.
What is GOTS?
GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. GOTS certified final products may include fiber products, yarns, fabrics, clothes, home textiles, mattresses, personal hygiene products, as well as food contact textiles and more.
Having one common standard means textile processors and manufacturers can export their fabrics and garments with one organic certification that is accepted in all major markets. This transparency also gives consumers the power to choose truly organic products sourced from green supply chains.
The aim of the standard is to define worldwide recognized requirements that ensure the certified organic status of textiles to provide credible assurance to the end consumer.
