According to LABEL-ONLINE (www.label-online.de), GOTS is a demanding label that makes a major contribution to ecological and social improvements in textile production. For this reason, it is considered a sustainable label. The label identifies products containing at least 95 percent natural fibres.
The criteria for awarding the label are developed by independent bodies, meaning the awarding process is transparent. Comprehensive, regular checks lend credence to the label. If a brand awarded the label violates the label's criteria, sanctions are imposed. Consumers can access all important information on the label free of charge.
