The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) requires high demands for the whole production chain of textiles to be certified. GOTS has been developed by the IVN together with the Soil Association (SA, United Kongdom), the Organic Trade Association (OTA, USA) and the Japan Organic Cotton Association (JOCA, Japan).

The most important criteria of the GOTS are:

  • A contamination of the end product with detrimental polutants as low as possible
  • Social minimum standards in each production line
