GOTS certified & Fair & working condition

Why this label is important to us.

Who is behind GOTS?

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. http://www.global-standard.org/

From fiber to sale – thoroughly tested according to GOTS

For the certification, independent testing institutions do not only test the raw material, but the complete production chain (including packaging and transport) that has to meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria.

This also includes that only non-harmful dyes are being used and that all production sites meet social standards (according to the core labor standards of the International Labour Organisation ILO such as labour protection, minimum wages, prohibition of child labor). In short: a GOTS certified product is not only good for you because you get an ecological product, but also good for those who are working in the production.

For GOTS certified manufacturers, there are specific rules for the storage of GOTS certified products and also the transport has to be in accordance to GOTS and must be fully documented. It was worth the effort, as by now the complete production chain GOTS certified .

Once GOTS – always GOTS?

To ensure that a GOTS certified product is truly ecological, the product is controlled by independent and officially recognized testing institutes. Manufacturers are inspected on an annual inspection cycle. And the production site, too, is obliged to renew its GOTS certification annually.

GOTS certification at a glance:

  • GOTS is a quality seal for natural, organic fibers.
  • Strong criteria have to be met for fiber production and the complete production chain.
  • Regular inspections by independent institutes ensure organic quality.

NATURAL HERBAL DYE

With NASPEX NATURAL LINE, we dont want to do things by halves.

That’s why we didn’t stop at the certification of Naspex products with GOTS standard. Our am is to make our NASPEX HERBAL LINE products truly organic, we use only natural herps for the coloring proces.
Because non-harmful dyes GOTS standard are still with chemicals (European Chemicals Regulation REACH).

  • We have decided that all of our NASPEX HERBAL LINE PRODUCTS will be dyed naturally with herbs & flowers like in the old time before chemicals was known. That makes the biggest difference between our NASPEX NATURAL LINE and other organic producers, You’ll fill the difference.
  • Regular inspections by Us and Indian Partners to ensure fair working contusion and organic quality.
  • Every single production receives an organic TEST REPORT from Textile & Analytical Laboratory Mumbai.

Fair & healthy working condition:

GOTS certified producer have to to guarantee a mildest standard of working conditions to get certified, and the organic way of how Textiles are produced makes the workplace safe and healthy.

The same we can report about our company which make our NATURAL HERBAL DYEING what is not standard in the organic color production.

We are very careful with our production partners about this issue, because this is and will be in the future from all listed points our main issue.

  •  Working in clean and healthy environment.
  •  Fixed working hours with paid overtime.
  •  Sufficient work-space.
  •  NO children labor.

 

Live and let live
