Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)


CERES-018

Qualitätszeichen für Leder und Textilien, die zu Bekleidung verarbeitet werden, waren immer schon ein wichtiger Aspekt in unserer Gesellschaft. Sie sind wirtschaftliche Faktoren, sie sind Ausdrucksmittel und tragen zu unserem Wohlbefinden bei. Sie können aber auch krank machen, die Umwelt belasten oder bei Menschen, die sie herstellen, die Lebensqualität mindern.

So geben mehr und mehr Menschen Naturtextilien oder Naturlederwaren den Vorzug. Um zu definieren, was man unter „Natur“ in Zusammenhang mit Textilien und Leder versteht und um Verbrauchern auf einen Blick vermitteln zu können, wann er ein ökologisches, sozialverträgliches und hochwertiges Produkt in der Hand hält, gibt es die beiden Qualitätszeichen des IVN, „Naturtextil IVN zertifiziert BEST“ und „Naturleder IVN zertifiziert“ sowie den „Global Organic Textile Standard“.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

Dieser, weltweit bekannte und verbreitete Standard wird von der „International Working Group on GOTS" vergeben. Eines der Mitglieder dieser Gruppe ist der IVN. Somit ist der GOTS nur indirekt ein IVN Standard, auch wenn IVN federführend an der Entwicklung beteiligt war. Der heute nicht mehr vergebene Standard „IVN zertifiziert“ stand Pate und wurde zu großen Teilen als Vorlage für den GOTS genutzt.

oekotex-logo

The inspection and certification system applied by the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 meets the manifold demands on quality of consumers as well as taking into account the complex production conditions in the textile sector: global organization; strong international division of labor; different mentalities in terms of the employment of possibly problematic materials.

  • Manufacture of textile products of all kinds that are harmless in terms of human ecology.
  • Facilitation and acceleration of supply relationships between producers and dealers who wish to provide their customers with textile products that are flawless in terms of health.
  • A reliable product labeling for consumers who consciously pay heed to textiles that are harmless in terms of health.

 

   

International Cotton Emblem

Protected products are fibers of high quality deriving from new cotton fibers. The right to use the International Cotton Emblem is granted to the company by the Bremen Cotton Exchange under the condition that – through deployment of preliminary products made of high-quality fibers deriving from new cotton fibers – products are manufactured whose cotton content amounts to 100%, without consideration of linings, interlinings or accessories; whereby tolerances of 5% for purposes of decoration and effect, and of 3% for foreign fibers, are acceptable. Contractual products may not include, in particular, blended fabrics that are only partially made of cotton fibers, as well as fabrics whose cotton content is below 92%, bearing in mind tolerances. The cotton fiber content of a product is calculated by weight percentage. The licenser has the right to change the demands on the contractual products and introduce advanced quality regulations after consultation with the licensee so as to safeguard the value and prestige of the International Cotton Emblem.
