Where is G&G linen made?
Our linens are carefully designed right here in the UK and then lovingly made in India.
What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is not a charity but a system of certification. It encourages fairer and sustainable practices between the producer and the buyer. This is done by ensuring a set of standards are met in the production and supply of a product. Meaning that the producer receives fair prices for their products, which allows them to pay their workers fairer wages. Giving them the possibility to provide for their families with dignity. Our products are sourced where there is no child labour and it complies with legislation regarding maximum working hours, overtime, compensation and incentives.
Why Organic Cotton?
Less than 1% of the world’s cotton is grown organically. The rest is treated with harmful chemicals. These are not only harmful to farmers, workers and you as consumers but also to the entire wildlife ecosystem.
At Goss & Genus, you, your wellbeing and the planet are at the core of our brand. Choosing organic cotton allows us to have a positive impact on your health and the health of our planet.
What is GOTS?
It’s the gold standard for organic certification in clothing and textiles production and is recognised internationally.
What does GOTS mean?
GOTS stands for the Global Organic Textile Standard.
Why is a GOTS certification important?
GOTS certification focuses on three areas of textile production:
1. The quality of the raw organic materials used
2. The guarantee that manufacturing procedures are as non-toxic and environmentally- friendly as possible
3. Factories producing GOTS certified products must meet certain labour conditions, including safe and hygienic working conditions, the right to a living wage and prohibitions against forced labour, discrimination, excessive working hours and harsh and inhumane treatment.
· A textile carrying the GOTS Organic label must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibres
· A product with the label grade grade ‘organic’ must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibres
· All dyes and processing chemicals must be non-toxic and biodegradable.
· Toxic heavy metals, chlorine bleaches and GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are prohibited
Organic fibres are naturally grown without the use of synthetic pesticides (such as insecticides), or herbicides and GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)
