Certified Organic is a certification process for producers of organic products. The Certification for Organic Textiles (such as organic baby clothing) involves the certification of EACH phase of organic fiber and textile production.
Certification requirements generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping. However the specific ‘certification requirements’ vary somewhat from country to country.
A certified organic cotton or bamboo operation has to have been managed in accordance with the organic standards (free from prohibited chemical inputs) for more than 3 years. Spinning, yarning, dyeing and garmenting are also required to be certified organic if the final product (e.g. onesie, muslin wrap etc) is to wear a “certified organic” label. The producer and manufacturer will continuously undergo periodic on-site inspections.
In summary, the Certification of Organic Textiles ensures that Organic Clothing is made in a responsible way – chemically, socially and environmentally and therefore the safest clothing for your baby.
