We use the reactive dyeing’s for the midnight black, espresso and coconut milk colourways. We asked our dyeing factory to dye the yarns and the dye is organic.

2 / Explain about the OCS certification?
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is a voluntary standard from Textile Exchange for tracking and verifying the content of organically grown materials in a final product. The standard verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product, and this applies to any non-food product containing 5 – 100 per cent organic material.

Certifications

About /
Our cotton, knitwear and hemp fabrics are all fully certified organic according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the leading worldwide standard for the processing and manufacture of organic textiles. For a clothing manufacturer to receive GOTS certification it must comply with ecological and social criteria including the use of organic fibres and non-toxic dyes, ethical treatment of workers and safe working conditions, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Only textiles produced and certified according to the provisions of the standard can carry the GOTS label. To learn more about our natural fabrics and how to look after them, check the care label on your BARE garment.

The SA8000 Standard and Certification System provides a framework for organisations across the globe to conduct business in a way that is fair and decent for workers and to demonstrate their adherence to the highest social standards. Our knit factory is in the process of applying for this important certification.

Our terry fabric supplier has been independently verified by SGS to ensure its production processes meet international standards, and our knitwear and terry fabrics are certified according to the Organic Content Standard (OCS) a voluntary standard led by global not-for-profit Textile Exchange that tracks and verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a completed product.
