Bio cotton is grown in organic farming systems according to clearly defined and world-wide recognised requirements. The standards of the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing. The certification in accordance with the IVN Standard meet the requirements of an ecofriendly production and impose conditions that go far beyond the legal requirements. The certification is a system that sets standards and ensures that they are met.
The entire processing chain has to guarantee that ecological fibres are not being mixed or contaminated with conventional fibres. At Gebr. Otto spinning and dyeing is certified according to GOTS by Control Union.
Certification of organic cotton production adds credibility to the final product, assures the buyer of the organic status of the product and encourages payment of premium prices to farmers who engage in organic practices. You can verify the certification with the licence number 2031.
Gebr. Otto is offering a high quality range in 100% organic cotton up to Nm 120/1 (or 2-plied) in a combination of Fairtrade and organic cotton certified FLO+GOTS.
