Organic Cotton

Organic cotton with confidence

Consumer awareness of sustainable products is on the increase, and demand for organic cotton products across textiles and apparel has never been higher. Free from GMOs and synthetic pesticides and fertilisers, organic cotton is grown using sustainable farming methods, reducing water use, and promoting biodiversity. While there are no mandatory certifications required to market cotton as organic, certification to recognised industry standards such as the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) requires cotton to meet stringent social and environmental criteria in its cultivation, and the fibre, fabric, and finished product must also be processed without the use of harmful chemicals.

  • No GMO seeds
  • No synthetic pesticides
  • Helps combat climate change
  • Preserving the water resources
  • Promote the fair trade with fair prices for farmers

Our testing services can support your development of organic cotton products by assessing whether fibres and fabrics fulfil the criteria for certification as organic cotton according to the requirements of the GOTS. Through GMO analysis of cotton seeds and chemical testing of fibres for the presence of toxic, synthetic pesticides, heavy metals, aryl amines, and other chemicals, we can provide the reassurance to back up your marketing claims and enable you to assess the environmental impact of your products.
