GOTS addresses the environmental and social processing stage of making organic apparel and textile products. All our organic cotton fabrics are certified through GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certification.
GOTS is the global leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental and social criteria along with the entire organic textiles supply chain. Worldwide organic textile requirements ensure the organic status of textiles from start to finish which means the products use raw materials that are collected using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing criteria all the way to labeling.

Fairtrade promotes better working conditions and trade opportunities for workers and farmers. WEAR ORGANIC is committed to following ethical principles in all aspects of the production cycle be it farmers or the workers.
Clothing is one of the most consumed consumer product on the market after food. The apparel manufacturing cycle goes through a variety of processes with the raw material making a long journey to the finished product and finally the consumer. This requires care and attention as well as the labour of numerous hands. This also means that workers in the clothing manufacturing industry are exposed to several negative aspects throughout their working life. Providing better working conditions and livelihood are one of our main priorities at WEAR ORGANIC.
