WHAT IS GOTS?
GOTS - The Global Organic Textile Standard, is an international, recognized standard for organic fibers, and the highest certification within the textile industry.
To achieve the certification, the GOTS organization sets strict requirements for a wide range of processes throughout the value and supply chain. This applies from the cultivation and processing of raw materials and all the way to social conditions during production, consideration for the environment and for the final, finished product.
Requirements for GOTS certification:
- Organic fibers
- No use of chemicals that may have a harmful effect on our health
- Social responsibility - fair and safe working conditions
- Environmental requirements for, among other things, wastewater, product and packaging
All links, processes and companies involved are verified and controlled regularly, so the consumer is always assured of the high standard and can always feel secured when buying the GOTS-labeled products.
At BORN Copenhagen, we have been GOTS-certified since 2017 - a certification we are very proud of. You can see and read more about our GOTS license here
