GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Having one common standard means textile processors and manufacturers can export their fabrics and garments with one organic certification that is accepted in all major markets.
The benefits of GOTS Organic Cotton
Compared with regular cotton, GOTS-certified organic cotton assures a series of benefits, making it a sustainable resource:
• Helps farmers
The seeds are cultivated by local farmers with safe work conditions and freedom to decide what to grow, no GM giant company is involved.
• No chemicals added
Organic Cotton is cultivated in lands where hazardous pesticides are banned, making it safer for growers.
• Good for the environment
Farming methods lock CO2 into the soil. Growing organic cotton produces up to 94% less greenhouse gas emissions, and less energy and water are used.
Traceable and Certified
Here at CT NASSAU utilizing the GOTS Standard allows us to purchase known organic fibres with complete traceability: a GOTS Transaction Certificate is supplied to us from the vendor detailing the origins of the fibre.
After we manufacture the final article with GOTS Certified material, we supply a further Transaction Certificate.
It is in this way that the complete process from the farm to the end-user consumer can keep its flow.
Currently, an article has to be at least 95% Organic to be able to claim “GOTS Certified”, and all Transaction Certificates from the supply chain must be present.
Application: Certified mattress fabrics and components; pillow and cushion fabrics; furnishing fabrics and mattress covers.
