How does the GOTS and GOLS Certificate work in our factory?
As a GOTS and GOLS certified organic factory, we are required to have a detailed and transparent tracking system in which we assign each mattress a serial number that ties back to the batch of organic cotton, wool, and latex used in the mattress. The material batch is attached to a transaction certificate that proves that our materials come from a certified organic chain starting with an organic farm. Control Union regularly audits our company to ensure that the organic materials we buy are equal to the organic materials we sell. And, our factory must comply with the organic and environmental standards outlined by GOTS and GOLS. These standards specify how materials are stored and packaged, as well as how our machinery is cleaned, and that we meet eco-friendly guidelines for water and energy usage in our facilities.
