Toronto-based Fine Cotton Factory receives the Global Organic Textile Standard certification (GOTS) a stringent, voluntary international standard for the processing of organic, fiber-containing products and addresses post-harvest processing stages, such as spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing and manufacturing.
This will allow Fine Cotton Factory to offer GOTS-certified organic-cotton mattress fabric.
GOTS certification includes both environmental and social provisions for post-farm to retail-shelf management. Key provisions include a ban on the use of child labor, genetic engineering, heavy metals and highly hazardous chemicals such as formaldehyde, while requiring living wages and strict wastewater treatment practices.
Skip Kann, director of special projects for Fine Cotton Factory said that they have worked diligently to earn this certification, and they know that their partners will appreciate the additional assurance the GOTS certification brings.
The textile industry is interested in suppliers that offer GOTS-certified fabrics. The company have a nice organic cotton product line, and the GOTS-certified accreditation takes their product line to the next level.
Thereâ€™s a growing lifestyle in all types of organic goods, and they are involving themselves in the demand for certified-organic textiles. Fine Cotton believes in the standard.
The GOTS certification received by Fine Cotton Factory must be renewed annually.
