Global Organic Textile Standard – GOTS
The products form Little Gingers and Soul Space are certified according tot he Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS is he worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification oft he entire textile supply chain.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed through collaboration by leading standard setters with the aim of defining requirements that are recognised world-wide and that ensure the organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the consumer.
The vision of GOTS is that organic textiles will become a significant part of everyday life, enhancing people’s lives and the environment. Their mission is the development, implementation, verification, protection and promotion of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This standard stipulates requirements throughout the supply chain for both ecology and labour conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials. Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides and fertilizers. In addition, organic production relies on adequate animal husbandry and excludes genetic modification.
