Organic clothes and textiles have become increasingly popular in the last decade. If you're seeking environmentally friendly clothing, then choose organic clothing - textiles are certified as organic it means that both the production of the fibre on the farm, and the processing of this fibre into textiles has met organic standards and been checked at every step of the processing supply chain for social and environmental responsibility.
The Soil Association certifies to the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) – the international gold standard for organic textiles. The whole supply chain from field through manufacture to final product must be certified, and we check against environmental and social standards.
There are several reasons why organic textiles are kinder,cleaner and better:
Organic fibres are grown without the use of harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms so promote a healthier farm and environment.
Eco-friendly fabrics are popular, but not all are truly green Our organic textiles don’t contain allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemicals.
Many highstreet retailers market organic clothing ranges that contain chemicals from the dyeing to bleaching process, which is inconsistent with the idea of organic clothing.
Organic standards ensure that you can be certain that you are buying a genuine organic product that has been produced in line with our principles.
The consumer awareness for ecology & environment is growing all over the world. There is increasing demand for ecofriendly & organic products. This also extends to organic textiles. More number of large retailers & buyers are pushing the demand for organic textiles.
