What exactly does GOTS stand for?

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is an international quality mark that sets requirements for both the production of the fibers and their further weathering. At least 70 percent (recognizable by the text Made with organic ) or at least 95 percent (recognizable by the text Organic ) of the product must consist of organically produced materials.

What are the requirements of the quality mark?

The requirements for organic natural fiber cultivation are laid down in European rules. No synthetic crop protection products, no genetically modified organisms and no artificial fertilizers are used during cultivation. Cotton, wool, silk, flax and hemp can be grown organically; cotton is most often grown organically. There are no requirements regarding permitting/banning the cultivation of cotton in water-scarce areas, but there must be a water management plan.

GOTS also has environmental requirements for the processing of the fiber into a product, requirements for working conditions and a fair wage in the production phase, not in the agricultural phase. There are also environmental requirements for packaging and supplies.

Compliance with the requirements of the quality mark is independently monitored by an accredited organization.
