Global Organic Textile (GOTS) - The leading quality standard in the textile industry.

1. Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)  is an international standard certification established to confirm that a particular textile product is produced with organic materials, with production processes that protect the environment and human health. This certification is considered as the highest standard for organic textile products worldwide, including processing, production, packaging, labeling, business, and distribution of all textile products made from at least 70% certified natural organic fibers. The finished fibers may include, but are not limited to, yarns, fabrics, clothing, and home textiles. However, this standard does not set criteria for leather products.

2. The requirements to meet the Global Organic Textile Standard

To meet the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), a fabric product must meet strict standards and requirements regarding the origin of the raw materials, production processes, and management, including:

Organic raw materials: All materials used in the production process must be organically grown and not use harmful chemicals such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and herbicides.

Production processes: production processes must comply with strict environmental and human health standards, including waste management, the use of sustainable energy and resources, the protection of labor, and ensuring the rights of workers.

Product quality: Fabric products must meet standards for quality, durability, and consistency to ensure the stability and reliability of the product.

Transparency and reliability: The production process and origin of the product must be fully, accurately, and transparently provided to ensure the transparency and reliability of the product.

3. The Role and Importance of Global Organic Textile Standard Certification

The GOTS certification plays an important role in promoting the development of the organic and sustainable textile industry. It provides consumers with a means to identify and choose sustainable and organic textile products, thereby ensuring the sustainability and reliability of the product.

The GOTS certification also plays a crucial role in creating a fair market for organic and sustainable textile products. It helps ensure that manufacturers and consumers alike adhere to common standards and regulations for environmental protection and workers' rights. This ensures that organic textile products are more valuable and creates healthy competition in the fashion and textile industry.

Additionally, the GOTS certification plays an important role in reducing the negative impact of production on the environment. Manufacturers must adhere to strict standards for resources and environmental management to minimize the impact of production on the environment. This helps to protect the environment and ensures that the textile industry contributes to reducing human impact on the environment.
