What is a Oeko-Tex certificate?
What is a Oeko-Tex certificate?

The Oeko-Tex standard is a certificate that confirms the quality of textile products designed for the  direct contact with human skin. Granting the certificate is preceded by tests to verify that the material does not contain at least one of the hundred most dangerous substances that could be a risk to consumers. Research carried out in laboratories contributes to the creation of products that are free from agens that have a negative impact on human health.

The Oeko-Tex certficate comes from the German Hohenstein institue and the Austrian Institute of Ecology, Technology and Innovation ÖTI and is aimed at veryfying and emphasizing the quality of products, setting strict standards, minimizing the use of harmful substances in the production proces, caring for animal life, raising awareness among farmers, producers and consumers and finally marking the products and consumers, as well as marking the products with a specific label with a logo and name of the institute and the certificate number. Oeko-Tex certified materials are also used to create products such as bed sheets, children’s underwear or fabric bags. 

What is GOTS certificate?
What is GOTS certificate?

GOTS, or Global  Organic Textile Standard, confirms that the products are made of at least 70% organic raw materials. More precisely, we divide the GOTS certificate into organic, meaning ecological materials and “made with x% organic”, meaning materials are produced with the use of ecological raw materials. The first variant assumes that the products consist of at least 95% of certified ecological fibres, while the second category confirms the use of at least 70% organic materials in production. During production, it is allowed to use a maximum of 10% synthetic fibres can be used. The exception may be the production of leggings or sportwear, where up to 25% of artificial fibres can be used.  The dyes used must be biodegradable.

The origin of GOTS-certified materials must be natural and the cultivation must be carried out using ecological methods and based on strict international terms, defined by the IWGO GOTS organization, which grants the certificates. The certification process monitors the entire process, from cultivation and harvesting to environmental work, processing and packaging. Certified products cannot contain genetically modified raw materials. In addition, producers should use a closed water circuit during production. In the case of the fabrics such as cotton, this is very important as this material is wet-spun.

The certificate covers products such as: fabrics, nonwoven materials, domestic textiles, clothes and others. Only leather products are excluded from the certification. Certification is granted every year and is valid for 1 year. The verification of the certificate takes place every year for more thorough quality control and compliance with the requirements.

What is a Recycled Claim Standard certificate?
What is a Recycled Claim Standard certificate?

The RCS certificate, meaning The Recycled Claim Standard, was created for the purpose of monitoring textile production that uses secondary raw materials. The originator of the idea is the organization Textile Exchange, which aims to ensure the quality, traceability and verification of documentation related to recycled materials in the product. The certificate is awarded and accepted globally.

During certification, materials, raw materials and methods of their production are checked. The final product is a mixture made of one or more raw materials of various percentages. Verification allows for transparent production. The RCS certificate ensures product quality and increases awareness of the possibility of reusing individual materials.

What Fairtrade Certificate stands for?
What Fairtrade Certificate stands for?

Fairtrade certification confirms social, economic and environmental aspects of production according to  Fairtrade Standards, that are the same for Producers and Traders worldwide.

The Fairtrade system monitors the whole process buying and the selling of the product. Certificate confirms that the farmers worked in dignified conditions. Certificates are issued only after confirming with a physical inspection that the production is all relevant to Fairtrade Standards.
