Do you have a piece of clothing from us? Then turn it inside out and check the sewn-in GOTS label. There is a lot of work behind this label. GOTS – the Global Organic Textile Standard – is the world's leading standard for organically produced natural fibers, for example cotton. The certificate combines environmentally friendly standards with strict social criteria along the entire production chain. So from the cotton field to the shipping box that is on its way to you. When it comes to fashion with the GOTS seal, you can be sure that it has been produced in an environmentally friendly manner as well as in a way that is harmless to health and social issues.
After each new test, we are extremely proud and happy to hold our fresh certificate in our hands. In an annual audit lasting several hours, we are questioned by the independent testing company CERES about all environmental and social criteria and have to provide a lot of evidence of compliance with these criteria. All of our producers throughout the entire supply chain undergo the same check. It is a lot of effort and also costs money. But it is worth it to us and this is the only way to ensure that sustainable and social behavior is not just something that is simply said, but is actually pursued seriously .
Nevertheless, for us: having a certificate is good. But knowing the people behind our products personally and seeing the individual production steps with your own eyes is and remains the most important part for us. That's what defines us and that's what we love so much about our job.
