Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a standard for organic cotton. The purpose of GOTS is to provide traceability in the entire supply chain, from cotton plantation to retailer. In doing so, GOTS certified products are verified as being made from actual organic cotton.


Suppliers and brands must undergo GOTS certification to claim that the materials they use are GOTS organic cotton.


If you intend to claim that your product is made of organic cotton, then you need to limit your supplier selection to suppliers that are GOTS certified. This means that they must be able to provide a transfer certificate for their fabrics.

All GOTS certified suppliers can be found on the GOTS website.
