The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
At Fair Wear Foundation, we know there’s a better way to make clothes. A fairer way. We want to see a world where the garment industry supports workers in realizing their rights to safe, dignified, properly paid employment. This is why we focus on the most labour intensive parts of the supply chain, to find answer to problems others think are unsolvable.
We partner with brands and support workers. We take practical steps and test new solutions to show that it’s possible to make clothes in a fairer way. With other industry influencers, we push towards a new normal- creating change that goes far beyond our reach.
Together, we’re making fashion fair for everyone.
