The GOTS label (Global Organic Textile Standard) is an international label created in 2002 for organic textiles.
It is the world reference in term for the evaluation of biological fibers, integrating social and ecological aspects.
The objective of this standard is to define globally recognized requirements, making it possible to guarantee the organic character of textiles from the harvest of raw materials, through responsible manufacturing from a social and environmental point of view, up to labeling, in order to provide a reliable guarantee to the end consumer. Textile processors and manufacturers must be able to export their organic fabrics and clothing along with accepted certification in all major markets.
At PSIR , we take care that all our textiles and clothing maintain the conditions of respect and improvement of working conditions as well as productions and environmentally friendly transformations.
