The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
All Isle of Omni towel and bedding products are proudly Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified, the world’s leading standard for this textile.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standard setters to define world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles. From seed to stitch, the entire process of the supply chain falls under the microscope.
At the very beginning, no genetically modified seeds are used, nor are pesticides or chemicals. This not only delivers a better, safer product for our customers, it is better for the farmers that don’t have to use chemicals, and for the environment as the soil remains fertile and requires less water for farming, conserving this precious resource.
Every step along the cottons journey to becoming a beautiful, completed towel, throw, or bedding, is overseen by GOTS strict environmental and social criteria. All parts of the supply chain process must be certified. From the growers, to spinners, dyers, factories and even storage. Product must be produced using fair trade labour. Production must be kept separate from non-organic production throughout the whole process to avoid contamination and any dyes used must be biodegradable.
Through this certification, we can confidently assure our customers that when using our products, there are no triggering nasties against their skin, just the most breathable and soft organic cotton of the highest quality.
