Bo Weevil has been at the basis of organically certified cotton and has thus made an important contribution to a more sustainable world. Now, almost 30 years later, they continue to do this by making high quality organic cotton more readily available. Accessible, contemporary and affordable.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is an international standard for organic clothing and textiles. GOTS is based on 100% organic raw material and clothing and textiles with this quality mark must consist of at least 70% organic fibers. The percentage is stated in the label. The strict standard for organic textiles is met throughout the chain - from harvesting raw materials, through socially responsible production to labeling, packaging and distribution.
This worldwide standard includes the use of environmentally friendly chemicals and water treatment at the factories. The GOTS certification also requires compliance with social criteria in cotton cultivation and processing into fabric. Thisconcerns matters such as minimum wages, a ban on child labor and a safe and hygienic working environment.
