Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
GOTS is the leading set of norms in the field of organic textile processing and its logo is appearing widely on organic textile products around the world. The standard requires all raw materials to be certified organic to a recognised international or national standard but the GOTS standard itself deals only with post production requirements.
