The Global Organic Textile Standard is the world's leading standard and thus the most important seal of quality for textiles made from organically produced natural fibers. Only textile products that consist of at least 70% organically produced natural fibers can be certified according to GOTS. The GOTS certification takes into account the entire textile value chain - from the controlled organic cultivation of the natural fibers to the labeling of the finished end product.
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX ® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles that have been tested for harmful substances, in which all components of an article, ie all threads, buttons and other accessories, have been tested and classified as human-ecologically harmless.
EUROPEAN FLAX ® is the quality feature of high-quality European linen fibers for all purposes and products based on linen fibers. That Certificate guarantees that linen is sourced exclusively from the European territories of France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Furthermore, by signing the EUROPEAN FLAX Charter, the flax growers and processors guarantee local agriculture that respects the environment, uses no irrigation and no GMOs (genetically modified organisms), does not generate waste and promotes agricultural biodiversity.
Organic Content Standard (OCS)
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is a certified standard of the independent organization Textile Exchange for textile products from controlled organic cultivation. The OCS 100 certificate applies to textile products that are made from at least 95% ecological material. The entire value chain is recorded and tracked from the raw material from controlled cultivation to the finished end product.
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council® and is an independent non-profit organization that aims to promote environmentally friendly, socially beneficial and economically viable management of forests.
