Global Organic Textile Standard
Our fabrics for the techJoggers & the warmUp hoodie are manufactured according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), i.e. its production follows strict guidelines and sustainability processes. Our fabric supplier from Poland is a GOTS-certified company and is subjected to a GOTS screening every two years.
GOTS label use
Portance is not allowed to use the GOTS certification and thus the label officially in the end product, since we also use FUZE™ technology as an anti-odor treatment in fabric production strong>. This technology is 100% sustainable and 100% safe, but due to its novelty it has not (yet) received official GOTS certification. Therefore, we are not allowed to mark our end products with the GOTS label, even though they are manufactured according to the GOTS standards.
We know it's complicated. But we want to give maximum transparency and also make you aware about the certification bureaucracy. So now you can decide for yourself what you think of it.
