What is GOTS Organic Cotton?

If you are an eco-friendly shopper, the GOTS label on a product will be significant to you. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. This certification provides credible assurance of responsible manufacturing with the least chemical inputs.

At Earthside Collection we stock several ranges which are GOTS certified, including our own branded 100% Organic Cotton wraps and swaddles. We are proud that our materials are sourced as ethically, socially and environmentally responsible as possible.  It is at the heart of all the decisions we make. 

The Global Organic Textile Standard

The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognized requirements that ensure the 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.

It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) means the end product is created with approved dyes which are free of harmful elements such as nickel, lead, formaldehyde, amines, pesticides and heavy metals.
