Very close to our heart is the GOTS certification. The Global Organic Textile Standard is one of the highest standards in the textile sector and applies to all components of the supply chain. Only if everything is really right here is the GOTS seal awarded. Every year, we and our suppliers prove anew that we have earned this certificate.
A part of our currently available bags is GOTS certified - and so are all suppliers from the cotton field in India. Our screen printing plant in Essen also shines with a GOTS certificate.
The minimum percentage of natural fibers must be 90%, 70% of which must be organically grown. Of course, the Mister Bags bags made of organic cotton easily meet this GOTS criterion. Pollutants such as heavy metals or formaldehyde are an absolute no-go, as are nanoparticles.
And the working conditions must also be right for the coveted GOTS certification: They must meet the minimum criteria of the International Labor Organization ILO. Since this is unfortunately not yet the case everywhere in the world, we select our producers and suppliers with all the greater care, where everything fits.
