The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) integrates all of the 

 textile processing stages, from the fibre to the finished product:

the raw fibre must be organic farming certified and all the manufacturing processes involved must be inspected. The aim of this standard is to guarantee the traceability, the use of environmentally-friendly and consumer-friendly chemicals, to ensure a quality system, a reduction of energy and to respect some social criteria.


serviette-gots-ecocertTwo labels for this standard according to the composition of the product to be certified:

  • Organic textiles: it requires 95% minimum of fibres coming from organic agriculture (with 5% maximum of synthetic or artificial fibres).
  • Textiles containing organic fibres: it requires 70% minimum of fibres coming from organic agriculture (with 10% maximum of synthetic or artificial fibres, this threshold to 25% for footwear and sportswear and 30% for recycled, made from organic raw material or substainable fibers ).
