Certifications To Look For
All context for each standard has been taken from each website. All labels listed are based on an independent 3rd party certification process.
The certification labels simplify your search for better furnishings, they reduce time & stress and give you the confidence in making the best decorating choices for your family.
If you are curious and want to dive deeper, just follow the links we provided. Most have a lot of valuable information on their website.
The aim of this Standard is to define requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
Having one common standard means textile processors and manufacturers can export their fabrics and garments with one organic certification that is accepted in all major markets. This transparency also gives consumers the power to choose truly organic products sourced from green supply chains.
GOTS certified final products may include fiber products, yarns, fabrics, clothes, home textiles, mattresses, personal hygiene products, as well as food contact textiles and more.
