GOTS & Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified
Debbie Bliss Eco Baby is a fair trade, organic cotton yarn. This is a sport-weight version of the popular Eco Cotton.
These beautiful yarns are manufactured from organic cotton within an ecological and socially conscious process through the bioRe textile chain, which integrates farmers, their families and the textile industry as equal partners. All production is based on the principle of fairness, with equal partnerships, involvement and participation, humane working hours and conditions. Eco cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers or defoliants and is harvested by hand. The yarn is dyed with non toxic/non-carcinogenic dyes and the water is recycled and rendered drinkable.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. Only textile products containing a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs, such as dye-stuffs, used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with minimum social criteria.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. It guarantees that all materials such as dye-stuffs used during the manufacturing process are not harmful to health or the environment. Therefore making Eco Baby & Eco Baby Prints perfect for children’s items.
