GOTS (GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD)
Since 2015, Taroni is GOTS certified, and can therefore produce GOTS certified fabrics.
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is recognised as the most important standard for sustainable production of garments and textile products made of natural fibres from organic farming such as organic cotton or organic wool.
According to GOTS it is possible to certify:
- textile products (containing at least 70% natural fibres from organic farming)
- manufacturing activities (dying, printing, …)
- chemical products for textile industry.
The GOTS certification is issued by ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale – Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification), a non-profit consortium that inspects and certifies several thousand companies that carry out their activities in respect of individuals and the environment, protecting the dignity of workers and consumer rights.

OCS (ORGANIC CONTENT STANDARD)
In 2019, Taroni also obtained the OCS certification.
Organic Content Standard (OCS) is promoted at international level by Textile Exchange and it provides for the issue of an environmental statement verified by a third party that:
- validates the content of natural fibres from organic farming in textile products (both intermediate and finished products);
- guarantees traceability along the entire production chain of raw materials, intermediate products and finished products.
The OCS certification is issued by ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale – Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification), a non-profit consortium that inspects and certifies several thousand companies that carry out their activities in respect of individuals and the environment, protecting the dignity of workers and consumer rights.
