GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and is the highest certification that organic cotton can have. This certification ensures that the entire textile process is certified to a stringent set of criteria from the moment the cotton is planted until the fabric is printed and shipped to us. We care about the environment and making sure that all involved in producing our fabric are paid and treated fairly. This is why all our fabric is GOTS certified.

Here is a super brief summary of the criteria.
1) Social Criteria: workers are paid a living wage, no child labour is used, fair working hours, legal and fair contracts that include rest times and time off, prevents discrimination, protects wages and follows the occupational safety and health conventions that ensures working conditions are safe and hygienic.
2) Environmental Criteria: this covers all the use of chemicals along all stages of the textile process including restrictions for potentially harmful chemicals and dyes, it also ensures that all waste is responsibly dealt with.

No we don’t run sales or discounts. Our current pricing structure is already the best price we can offer all year round and we don’t over inflate our prices and then reduce them at different times of the year. We do occasionally have pieces of slightly flawed fabric that we will sell at a reduced rate but we won’t sell our regular fabric for any less than you see it now.
