What is GOTS?

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is the world-leading textile processing standard for organic fibres.

It covers the whole supply chain from field to factory, and provides a comprehensive standard that covers both environmental and social criteria for the production and processing of organic textiles (in our case, Cotton).

The key criteria assessed by GOTS are as follows:


  • The separation and identification of organic fibres from conventional fibre
  • Use of GOTS approved colourants in wet-processing stages of production
  • Processing units must demonstrate environmental care, such as treating wastewater
  • Prohibited use of environmentally hazardous substances in chemical inputs
  • And more, which you can read in more detail on the GOTS website.


GOTS social criteria must be met by all organisations involved in the processing of GOTS certified garments.

The social criteria covers all elements laid out by the International Labour Organisation, the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Employment is freely chosen
  • Freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Child labour shall not be used
  • No discrimination is practised
  • Occupational health and safety (OHS)
  • No harassment and violence
  • Remuneration and assessment of living wage gap
  • Working time

To learn more, you can read about GOTS social criteria on their website.

Who else was involved in the processing of our Organic Cotton?

Primary Production (Farming Stage)

The Organic Cotton used in our supply chain is grown in Brazil.

Secondary Production (Processing Stage)

The harvested cotton is then shipped to Bangladesh where it is spun into thread by Bashda Textiles LTd / Kamal Yarn Ltd (GOTS Certified and located in Jamirdia, Valuka 2240 Mymensingh - Bangladesh).

The final stage of getting the fabric ready for production is turning the yarn into fabric and the dyeing process, both of which are completed by M.N. Dyeing, Printing & Washing Mills LTD (GOTS Certified and located at Baniarchala, Bhabanipur, Gazipur Sadar, Gazipur-1741, Dhaka, Bangladesh).

How to care for Organic Cotton?

Keeping clothes in circulation for longer is one of the best ways to reduce their environmental impact.

To take best care of your organic cotton garments, we recommend:

  • Machine wash at 30 degrees on a gentle cycle
  • Only wash with similar colours
  • Hang or lie products flat to dry naturally instead of using a tumble dryer
How much of our product range is made by Organic Cotton?

In 2021 & 2022, 99% of our products were made from deadstock cotton – everything aside from our socks which are made from Organic Cotton & recycled materials.

We introduced our Organic Cotton range in 2023, and project that in 2023 Organic Cotton will make up 80%+ of our production.
