We are super excited to have launched our new 100% organic cotton cellular blankets. But it’s not just any organic cotton – it’s GOTS cotton, approved by Global Organic Textile Standards. Here, we explain what the certification means – and there’s a whole lot more to those four little letters than you might think.
This is where certification comes in – because it lets us know that a product is what is says it is. In the case of GOTS, that’s not simply organic – but the shining gold star of organic. Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world’s leading standard of textile production in organic fibres, and it’s a mark that goes far beyond the cotton crop. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with a high social criteria as well. It ensures from an external body that the garment is made in a sustainable and ethical way from seed to stitch throughout the supply chain.
It’s not enough to just say our blankets are organic, we want to give our customers complete transparency in the supply chain– which is why we have aligned ourselves with GOTS. Through our certification we can ensure our products are made in accordance to the very high requirements of the GOTS standard.
