The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. It is internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of the manufacturing process. We chose to have all of Opok's products GOTS certified to give our consumers peace of mind that the earth, farmers, factory workers, and products are treated with the highest care, while eliminating toxins from our bodies.
In order to become GOTS certified, the entire manufacturing process must follow by these strict guidelines below:
Contain at least 95% organic fiber | Not be treated with bleach, formaldehyde or any other toxic substances | Be colored with nontoxic dyes | Be produced in a mill that enforces strict social and environmental standards, treating their employees and the earth with deep respect.
