The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading international standard organizations and introduced in 2006. Globally recognized guidelines have been created that guarantee the sustainable production of textiles, starting with the extraction of organically produced raw materials and environmentally and socially responsible production through to transparent labeling, and thus offer the consumer credible quality assurance
The GOTS is now one of the world’s best-known seals in the textile sector and is recognized in all important trading markets.
Since the introduction of the GOTS logo and licensing system, the GOTS can not only be found on the shelves of natural textile shops, but also at large retailers and brands. This increases awareness among consumers and reflects the acceptance of the GOTS across the industry.
