Soil Association Certification is the UK’s leading organic certification body.

The association certifies organic textile companies to two standards: the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and the Organic Content Standard (OCS). GOTS is the leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, and OCS verifies that a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material.

Organic textiles are good for business, people and the planet. With shoppers increasingly looking for sustainable fashion, and transparency in what they buy, certification is becoming essential. Organic certification is proof that your claims are backed up.

Alongside the certification service, the body inspires citizens and companies about organic textiles. Soil Association Certification provides organic market data, science-based messaging, marketing support through national campaigns such as Organic September, events, PR and advocacy.

The body helps fund Soil Association, the membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. They are quarter founders and owners of GOTS; and co-founded the Sustainable Cotton Challenge.
