WHAT IS GOTS CERTIFICATION?
A garment may be made of organic fibers, but that doesn't mean the fiber is processed in a sustainable way. The Global Organic Textile Standard takes things a step further and ensures that a garment is made in a way that considers ecological and social criteria (this includes water and energy usage). Loomstate's organic cotton apparel is made using a GOTS-certified supply chain. Learn more about GOTS.
WHAT IS FAIR TRADE COTTON?
Organic does not always mean Fairtrade and vice versa. Fair Trade refers to a cooperative buying-selling partnership that is based on transparency and mutual support. Simply put, it ensures workers are paid a Fair Trade Premium, working conditions are safe, kids are, all genders and races are honored equally in the workplace, and the environment is considered in the production of the product.
What this all means is security and self-sufficiency for our small-scale growers and producers, promoting a long-lasting and sustainable international partnership. For our customer, this means increased comfort in their buying decisions.
