The GOTS standard stipulates requirements throughout the supply chain for both ecological and labour conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials. Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. In addition, it includes welfare standards for animal husbandry and prohibits genetically modified organisms.Owner of Selected Yarns, Britta Kremke, talk to Craft Focus about the importance of stocking GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified yarns.
