The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed through collaboration by leading standard setters with the aim of defining requirements that are recognized world-wide and that ensure the organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labeling in order to provide credible assurance to the consumer.

The objective is to offer end consumer human-ecologically optimized, harmless products tested in line with the OEKO-TEX criterial catalog, and to provide effective consumer health protection.
Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council
Products with the FSC label contribute to the mission of ensuring thriving forests for all, with materials from responsibly managed, FSC-certified forests. Together with The Rainforest Alliance certification, this ensures that our latex mattress cores were produced with methods supporting three pillars of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. Independent, third-party auditors evaluate farmers in all three areas before awarding certification. Standards focus on considerations for forests, climate, and human rights, including livelihoods.
All of our products are made by hand in our Northern California workshops. Our expert team of skilled crafters take great care to ensure that each product is made with the highest standards and purest intentions. All of our raw materials are carefully measured and checked at every stage of the process to ensure consistency and quality. Our production team strives to demonstrate the proper use of materials, production techniques, and lifestyle principles with a commitment to sustainable industry practices. Rather than factory made, our pledge to fine craftsmanship ensures that your all natural bedding is deeply rooted in an ancient tradition that values lasting quality versus planned obsolescence.
The Fibershed Producer Program is a membership-based network of farmers, ranchers, designers, sewers, weavers, knitters, felters, spinners, mill owners and natural dyers living and working within 51 counties in the North and Central regions of California.
