GOTS - GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD
How Do We Benefit with GOTS Certification?
The Global Organic Textile Standard, more commonly known as GOTS, is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres which includes ecological and social criteria. By choosing to work with certified manufacturers and suppliers brands can benefit in a number of ways.
- Reducing Risk of Poor Practise
GOTS sets strict and extensive environmental and social criteria for the entire supply chain. Their rigorous guidelines make it easier for brands to evaluate their production partners and ensure that everyone involved is working within the regulations.
GOTS is a comprehensive risk management instrument for your supply chain which legitimises claims and promises made by suppliers and producers.
- Confidence and Credibility
Certifications serve as independent verification which help build confidence in a brand versus self-claims which rely on trust between business and consumer. Producing with GOTS gives the brand dual quality assurance – onsite inspection and product testing, as well as our own team’s quality control and procedures.
- Efficiency and Productivity
GOTS’ wastewater management, and other similar requirements, result in improved eco-efficiency throughout the supply chain. It also gives our team and sourcing department confidence in our manufacturers ability to explore new ethical innovations for production.
GOTS also set guidelines for social compliance which result in improved socio-efficiency. It is important to work with suppliers and factories that care and protect their workers as it is here where we see a rise in quality and care for our products.
