We have decided to solely work with suppliers that supply GOTS-certified fabric, dyeing and printing processes. This certification standard demands rigid environmental criterias on the entire manufacturing process of products from the raw material to the final fabric.
GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard
GOTS is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for organic textiles and fibres, and includes strict regulations about chemical use, recycling and waste management on everything from farming, harvesting, production, processing, manufacturing to packaging. It guarantees 70-95% organic fibres inside the product, coming from organic cotton, organic wool, organic linen and others. The standard also requires compliance with social criterias regarding working environment, salary, working time and child labour, and is backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
For a small company like WAWA with great values and ambitions of creating products with as low environmental impact as possible, GOTS certified suppliers is a good start.
We hope that our choices of fabric and design result in long lasting products that can be worn again and again.
