WHAT IS GOTS? We first introduced GOTS certification into our product range in 2018, and it can now be found in products across four of our six core categories. Our GOTS certified range uses organic cotton, which is grown using less chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers. The seeds are not genetically modified and natural crop management and protection tools are used in the farming process. However, what is it that makes GOTS certification so special?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent third-party certification of the entire textile supply chain.
GINNING TO FINISHED PRODUCT
GOTS certification covers all steps from removing seeds from the cotton boll, spinning, knitting and weaving, through to labelling and final packaging.
PROCESSESS & MANUFACTURING
The processing and manufacturing practices are closely monitored to ensure requirements are met for all chemical inputs, and must demonstrate environment management, including wastewater treatment.
We’ve worked closely with our suppliers to ensure our GOTS certified products meet the standards and contain a minimum of 95% organic cotton.
The GOTS certification process is performed by independent Third-Party GOTS accredited Certification Bodies.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
The feeling of the organic cotton fabric will vary depending on how the cotton is woven. Our organic cotton sheets are strong and durable, as well as breathable and soft on the skin. An organic cotton percale will feel soft and crisp, whereas an organic cotton sateen will feel silky and smooth. Organic cotton towels and bathrobes are different again, with beautiful plushness and high absorbency.
HOW DO I RECYCLE MY PRE-LOVED COTTON PRODUCTS?
Not sure what to do with your pre-loved bed linen and towels? We encourage you to participate in our Recycling Program by bringing your pre-loved bed linen and towels (of any brand) to a collection point in store. They are then collected by a third party and sent to one of our partner factories who are certified to the Global Recycling Standard (GRS) to convert donations into recycled fibres. The majority of materials collected through our program are cotton which is suitable for conversion to recycled yarn that can be repurposed into new products. Other donated materials which are not suitable for conversion to yarn are able to be used in non-woven products in other industries, such as installation. Another option is to donate these products to your local animal shelter.
