When selecting materials, they strive for all fabrics to be organic and certified by ‘The Global Organic Textile Standard’ (GOTS) which is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. GOTS defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
