Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is more thorough and covers every step of the supply chain. It is the most comprehensive accreditation covering fibre production, processing and manufacturing.
