Global Organic Textile Standard
Our fabrics for the techJoggers & the warmUp hoodie are produced according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which means their production follows strict guidelines and sustainability processes. Our fabric supplier from Poland is a GOTS certified company and undergoes a GOTS screening every two years.
GOTS label use
Portance may not officially use the GOTS certification and therefore the label in the final product, because weadditionally use the FUZE™ technologyas an anti-odor treatment in the fabric production. This technology is 100% sustainable and 100% safe, but has not (yet) received official GOTS certification due to its novelty. Thus, we are not allowed to label our final products with the GOTS seal, although they are produced 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 & industry. So you can decide for yourself what you think about it.
