WHAT DOES GOTS CERTIFIED MEAN?
The GOTS certificate ensures top quality, defining high-level environmental and social criteria throughout the supply chain in the production of textiles and clothing. It includes everything from agriculture, harvesting, production, processing and manufacturing, as well as packaging and branding.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) guarantees that a clothing item is made from 95% certified organic natural fibers. The remaining 5% (e.g. buttons or zippers), must be made of sustainable or recycled materials.
The GOTS certificate is not only making a difference for you, as a consumer, but also ensures safe and proper working conditions for farmers and seamstresses with the right to trade unions and a living wage salary – not just a minimum wage.
GOTS certified also means that textiles are free of hazardous chemicals. Any chemicals used must not be toxic, carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting or environmentally harmful.

Producing clothes organically protects the health of people, plants and animals. This is completed through organic farming which operates in a way that minimizes environmental impact and prohibits the use of toxic chemicals and pesticides that can end up in the soil, air and water.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A PRODUCT IS GOTS CERTIFIED?
GOTS is a traceable organic product label, since every step of the way must be certified, from sowing and harvesting the raw materials, to manufacturing and distributing the clothes. If a company is GOTS certified, like Molo, you can search for the given company in the public.
The GOTS symbol is recognized as a small white shirt in a green ring. However, do notice that just because something is organic it does not mean that it is GOTS certified.
On Molo’s website you’ll be able to see if a product is GOTS certified if the symbol appears on picture of the product and if the certification is mentioned in the product description. The clothes also carry the GOTS certificate and reference number on the price tag.

The required criteria of the Oeko-Tex Association are often far more stringent than national standards. The same requirements are imposed on the products, regardless of the country in which they are produced and analyzed. Through extensive product control and regular visits to textile manufacturers, Oeko-Tex ensures responsible use of chemicals.
The strictest requirements are the ones concerning articles for babies and toddlers up to 3 years of age. While articles worn in contact with the skin also have strict requirements. Molo is certified under product class 1, which achieves all of the above requirements.
The precondition for obtaining the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria. Everything to and including fabric, sewing threads and prints, and non-textile accessories such as buttons, zippers, rivets etc. are fully tested.
The Oeko-Tex association continuously adjust these requirements so that they comply with the latest regulations in regard to harmful chemicals and the production of textile products.
