The TOSCO Organic Project and GOTS
We are promoting the “TOSCO Organic Project”. Since 2011, from cultivation of ramie to the creation of drafts, we carry out certified organic farming in compliance with EU rules for farming, and GOTS certification, the global organic standard
for textile products, for processing.
Currently, GOTS certification has been obtained for the Mihara Factory and the spinning process at Kunshan Tosco Textile Co., Ltd. With this, the processing procedures up to yarn spinning have been established. TOSCO’s organic products have cleared internationally strict auditing standards and are manufactured as certified, environment-friendly products.
