Spotlight on: GOTS Certification

global organic textile standard

One of the biggest goals we have set for ourselves here at Pitupi is to obtain certification from one of the world’s leading textile processing standard, GOTS. GOTS –which stands for the “Global Organic Textile Standard” – was introduced almost 10 years ago in an effort to set the bar on acceptable labour practices in the garment industry. Since then, the standard has evolved three times in order to include new requirements.

GOTS Criteria

The GOTS criteria covers two distinct categories related to clothing production: fiber production and processing and manufacturing. Companies eligible for GOTS certification must ensure that the fibers they use are farmed according to strict standards. A label of “organic” indicates the item is made of at least 95% organic fibres, whereas the “made with organic” label requires the product to contain at least 70% certified organic materials.

The criteria for the processing and manufacturing phases is more comprehensive, and examines elements like environmental impact, the overall quality and longevity of an item, and fair labor conditions. For example, a kids clothing company seeking GOTS certification will have to prove that all employees work in safe and hygienic environments, that their free will is observed, and that they are fairly paid. Additionally, no children should be employed in the facility and all employees should receive frequent breaks.

How This Standard Impacts the Consumer

Employees in the garment industry aren’t the only ones that benefit from the GOTS standard. Consumers can become more knowledgeable about the origins of their items, from an organic baby body they’ve purchased for a child, to a pair of sandals they’ve selected for themselves. The GOTS label guides them in leading a more socially responsible lifestyle.

Each Pitupi clothing item will be made from GOTS-certified fabrics, from our unisex dungarees to our comfy pyjamas. You can learn more about our commitment to following this standard by exploring our website, www.pitupi.de.
