The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) label guarantees an ecological production method by certifying the organic origin of textiles, particularly cotton. The production of GOTS-labelled textiles cannot use toxic or carcinogenic substances. The label takes into account every stage of the process: harvesting of raw materials, manufacturing, labelling and distribution. In addition to limiting harmful substances, the label ensures that water and energy consumption is reduced.
Organic cotton is grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers, and without GMOs. The water consumption necessary for its cultivation is reduced by at least half compared to traditional cotton. Thus, the cultivation of organic cotton is more respectful of the planet, by preserving the soil, the ecosystems and the people who work on the production chain.
Organic wool is a natural fiber from certified organic agriculture. This means that the sheep have been raised in a certified organic farm, according to the standards set by the Ministry of Agriculture. The standards of this production require strict rules to prohibit any animal abuse. Organic production is an example of good practice, of a sustainable system that respects both the planet and animal welfare.
