Why Organic Textiles ?

The production of organic cotton has increased dramatically in the last 5 years from 6,500 tonnes in 2001 to an estimated 44,500 tonnes in 2006 according to Organic Exchange. Estimated global retail sales of organic cotton goods are expected to reach $ 3.5 billion by 2008. Many leading retailers and brands including Nike, Co-op Schweiz, Otto, Patagonia, Gap Inc, Levi Strauss and Wal-Mart now include organic cotton lines among their clothing ranges.

What is GOTS ?

GOTS is an organic textile standard set by four groups promoting the interests of the organic industry:
  • OTA (Organic Trade Association) in the USA
  • SA (Soil Association) in the UK
  • JOCA (Japanese Organic Cotton Association)
  • IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V. – International Association Natural Textile Industry) in Germany
