Coyuchi receives organic textile standard certificate

Coyuchi, the first company to bring 100% organic cotton bedding to the United States, is proud to continue leading the way in eco-conscious and socially responsible home textile manufacturing, announcing the certification of its organic cotton product lines to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

The world's leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, GOTS covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70% certified organic natural fibers.

Including both ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire supply chain, the aim of the standard is to define globally-recognized requirements that ensure the organic status of textiles - from harvesting of the raw materials, to environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, all the way to labeling. GOTS certification assures consumers that in addition to environmental protection, Coyuchi’s production process protects laborers around the globe, ensuring freely chosen employment, fair living wages, safe and hygienic working conditions and more.

“Coyuchi is one of the first and largest home textile companies in the US to get its extensive offering certified to GOTS,” noted Sandra Marquardt, Global Organic Textile Standard Representative in North America.

“We are excited to provide our customers with the highest standard of environmental and social commitment across the widest array of products in the home textiles industry,” says Eileen Mockus, VP of Product for Coyuchi. “With the GOTS certification, we can verify through third party auditors, that our products adhere to the values we’ve held as a company for over 20 years.”

Showcasing a commitment to safe, fair production methods unprecedented in the home textiles sector, Coyuchi has been using GOTS certified manufacturing facilities for several years, making every effort to source and manufacture products in socially compliant facilities with minimal harm to the environment.  Having already achieved GOTS certification for nearly every organic cotton item sold by Coyuchi, the expanded certification will now apply to every organic item carried by the brand.

“Our customers trust Coyuchi to bring beauty and environmental sensibility to their homes,” says Karyn Barsa, CEO of Coyuchi. “We are very proud to have met this demanding standard, and will strive to continue leading the way when it comes to socially and environmentally responsible home textile production.”

About Coyuchi

As the first company to bring organic cotton bedding to the United States, Coyuchi was founded 20 years ago in Point Reyes Station, a small town on the Northern California coast. There, surrounded by ocean, forest, beach and bluff, Coyuchi’s "aesthetic ecosystem" philosophy of design was born, leading to a line of home textiles rooted in the innate qualities of nature.  This rustically sophisticated style has become the hallmark of Coyuchi, with every product, color and detail designed to fit harmoniously and evolve repeatedly, for effortless mixing of colors and textures from room to room and season to season.
