GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is an internationally recognized standard for textiles made from certified organically produced raw materials. The entire production chain is examined, from the harvest to the final processing and making the final product. If at least 70% of the final product consists of organic textile, this can be recognized by the text ‘Made with organic’. Does it consist of organic textiles for at least 95%? Then it can be recognized by the text ‘Organic’. The organic cotton that Cotton Suite uses for duvet covers and fitted sheets is 100% organic, so it’s labeled ‘Organic’.
Strict rules and guidelines apply to the GOTS standard. Companies are audited annually by independent auditors. So, you can’t just put the logo on your products. Textiles that meet the GOTS standard offer many advantages over textiles that do not meet these requirements:
- No use of fertilizers and synthetic plant protection products
- Less consumption of water and energy
- Less greenhouse gas emissions
- No use of harmful chemicals while dyeing the fabric
- Responsible working conditions and a hygienic working environment
- No child labor
By buying our organic cotton bed linen that carries the GOTS logo, you are making the best choice for people, nature and the environment. We are therefore proud that our organic cotton carries the logo.
