The Global Organic Textile Standard is the international ‘gold standard’ for organic textile. Contrary to a lot of other standards and initiatives, it ensures the quality of the entire supply chain: no pesticides or fertilizers, only low impact dyes and on top of that decent working conditions.
All products sold by Bo Weevil are GOTS certified and are labeled with the GOTS logo and number CU005007. Please find our GOTS certificate here. It is valid until May 10, 2021 and will then be renewed after the yearly inspection.
Transaction certificates guarantee every step in the production chain has been carried out in accordance with the GOTS guidelines.
If your company is GOTS certified and you want to sell products with your own GOTS certification number on the label, you need transaction certificates for the Bo Weevil fabrics or products. We can request these certificates from GOTS for you. This must be done no later than 6 months after the invoice date. All purchases made with us in a period of three months can be listed on one transaction certificate. The costs for a certificate are 45 euros and we will pass this on to you. For more information, we refer to the guidelines of GOTS.
To learn more about the standard, you can visit the official website www.global-standard.org. Or watch the video below for a shorter, but very clear explanation.
The GOTS label consist of two grades. Bo Weevil only sells products with the ‘organic’ label, which means they consist of ≥95% certified organic fibres. Products with the 70% mentioned in the video are certified as ‘made with organic’. Correct GOTS labelling shows not only the green logo, but also the license number and/or name of the certified company.
