Understanding the GOTS Certification and Its Importance in the Apparel Industry



What is the GOTS Certification?

The Global Organic Textile Standard, or GOTS, is an internationally recognized certification that verifies the organic status of textiles. It covers the entire production process, from raw material harvesting, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, up to labelling. This ensures the organic nature of the textile product, all while adhering to rigorous ecological and social criteria.

Why is GOTS Certification Important?

  1. Guarantee of Organic Integrity: GOTS ensures that a product labeled as 'organic' truly adheres to the strict criteria of organic production, from the farming of the cotton to the final stitching.
  2. Environmental Protection: The certification requires manufacturers to adhere to stringent environmental criteria, including restrictions on toxic chemicals and wastage.
  3. Social Responsibility: GOTS certification ensures that the entire production process respects workers' rights and provides them with a safe and hygienic working environment.

GOTS certification is an essential tool in ensuring that textile products are truly organic and produced in a manner that respects both the environment and people involved in the process. As consumers become increasingly conscious about their purchases, this certification offers a reliable way to choose genuinely sustainable products.
