Why we care for Organic Certifications in our store? About GOTS and OEKO-TEX®

  The Global Organic Textile Standard, popularly known as GOTS, is a leading textile processing standard for organic fibers throughout the world. This standard includes ecological as well as social criteria, which are backed up by independent certifications of the entire textile supply chain.
  It is the most comprehensive and covers the entire process of cloth making;

1. Environmental aspects – cultivation without the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or GMO (genetically modified organism)
2. Production aspects – the supply chain, from dyeing and spinning to sewing and manufacturing
3. Social aspects – following labor regulations, decent wages and working hours

  The GOTS certification, on the other hand, is accepted internationally with one framework and one set of criteria. Going through extensive testing at each step of production, a GOTS certified product reduces the overall environmental impact and prevents toxic residues from reaching the human skin. 

  OEKO-TEX® certification promises that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms.

  Becoming an Organic  certified label is not an easy task; one must go through a wide range of tests and quality inspections but the end result is a chemical free, environment friendly and socially responsible product that is sure to give the brand an advantage in worldwide markets.
