At Textil Batavia we have obtained the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certificate, an internationally valid certificate that guarantees sustainability in the textile sector. It is one of the main independent global standards and certifies that the cotton we work with is organically/ecologically grown.
What is GOTS certification and why is it important?
GOTS is currently the sustainability certification par excellence in the textile sector. Obtaining this certificate allows the inclusion of the GOTS logo and the inscription “organic textile product” as a guarantee that the articles comply with sustainability standards in the chain from production to consumers.
GOTS is the leading global standard for organic fibre processing, which includes ecological and social criteria and is based on independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. GOTS-certified end products can include fibre products, yarns, fabrics, garments, home textiles, mattresses, personal care products, as well as textiles in contact with food, etc.
The existence of a global standard makes it easier for textile processors and manufacturers to export their fabrics and garments with an accepted organic certification to all major markets. It also gives consumers the power to choose truly organic products from fully green supply chains.
GOTS certification is an internationally recognised standard for environmentally friendly and socially responsible textile processing. It not only assesses whether articles are produced in a sustainable manner, but also stipulates rules and guidelines that companies must follow throughout the production chain. This gives the customer the assurance that a GOTS-labelled fabric has been produced in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
