The Global Organic Textile Standard is an internationally-recognized certification for textiles. According to the GOTS website, it is a set of requirements covering the “production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, exportation, importation and distribution of all natural fiber products.”
Here’s a highlight of what GOTS Certification entails:
- The fabric and all of its fibers must be at least 95% organic, as certified by “recognized international or national standards.” If the fabric is less than 95% organic, it can be labeled as “made with organic.”
- The fabric needs to be processed separately from conventionally-grown fiber to prevent cross contamination.
- Dyes and oils need to be biodegradable and free of chemicals like phthalates, PVC, synthetic sizing agents, and chlorine bleach. The processing facility must keep full records of any chemicals used in their manufacturing process.
- No genetically modified fibers allowed.
- Farmers, producers, processors, and manufacturers all need to be certified by an accredited GOTS certifier or an internationally recognized accreditation.
- Fabric and products must meet stringent requirements for residue testing.
- Leather and leather products are not eligible for GOTS certification.
- Facilities must maintain minimum fair labor practices from the International Labor Organization.
That last one is huge for me as a maker and is a big part of why I chose to use GOTS fabrics. Fair labor standards are so important for children and families all over the world.
