Organic and GOTS
Congratulations! You have found a Swedish brand with organic textile products for children. We are proud to be able to offer a range of organic and natural babyproducts that are kind to both our children and the environment.
The Summervilles products are certified all the way, in every step, from cotton cultivation to dyeing, production, handling and storage. This mean that the finished products may carry the GOTS logo with their own certification number for identification. This is valid for all our product that has the GOTS-logo present on the product page.
What does GOTS mean?
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. The GOTS certification shows environmental thinking and social responsibility throughout the chain, from cultivation, preparation and production to finished product.
The GOTS label shows that the product is made from organically grown raw material, ie cotton from certified organic cotton growers who get paid fairly and can live on their salary. Around the organic cotton farm it is a good environment, no pesticides are allowed, water quality is protected and soil erosion is prevented.
GOTS has strict limitations on the use of chemicals. The GOTS certification shows that the products are completely free of harmful substances and have been so throughout the production chain up to the finished product. When dyeing the products, the colors do not contain any toxins that are harmful to humans or the environment.
For GOTS certification, demands are placed on working environment and social rights for those who work in the various ranks. The fabric sews products of adult, trained seamstresses and tailors who can live on their wages, which have development opportunities regardless of gender and freely express their opinions. With a GOTS-labeled product you can rest assured that the product is fairly produced, that workers are paid fairly and work in good working conditions.
The entire process, from cotton cultivation to production and storage of products, is checked annually by special certification bodies to ensure that everything is done according to GOTS policies. No deviations may be made if the final product is to be labeled with GOTS.
The GOTS brand is also a quality stamp. In order for a product to be labeled with GOTS, the product must meet specific quality requirements in terms of wash fastness, shrinkage and wear.
The end result is organic products of the highest quality that have not been in contact with chemicals and are therefore kind to the child's skin. Products that we are proud of and hope you enjoy.
