The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Sustainable for sure.
The Global Recycled Standard confirms that the material used is recycled: the polyester is made from PET bottles, the cotton from cuttings. The GRS also covers compliance with social and environmental standards, such as waste water treatment, the absence of toxic additives and compliance with working conditions in our partner factories.
When this label is mentioned it means that these products are certified OCS by ECOCERT Greenlife, Organic Content Standard, providing independent certification that the fabrics are made with organically grown materials. The aim of this standard is to guarantee the traceability and integrity of raw materials at all stages of production.
It guarantees that the organic cotton of your purchased product is pure.
Forests are invaluable in terms of biodiversity and provide ecosystem services that are crucial to the survival of life on our planet. For example, more than 80% of terrestrial animal and plant species find their home in forests. And also some 1.6 billion people depend directly on forests for their livelihoods. Unfortunately, however, the pressure on our forests remains extremely high. Sustainable forest management is one of the solutions to protecting and preserving forests worldwide, and this is exactly what FSC is all about.
