GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD (GOTS)

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world’s leading
standard for processing of textiles from certifi ed organic natural fi bers.
In 2017, the number of GOTS certifi ed companies increased to 5,024
certifi ed facilities, which gives brands and companies the chance to
source from suppliers in 63 countries. Th e GOTS certifi cation requires
IFOAM’s Family of Standards Organic Production Standards for the
raw fi ber and sets stringent criteria along the entire textile value chain
(including chemical input and ILO social criteria) from fi eld to fi nished
product. Even B2B resellers need to get certifi ed in order to make
reference to GOTS in their marketing.
