Organic Textile Testing

Organic Textile Testing

Organic clothing refers to clothing made from materials grown in accordance with organic farming standards. Organic clothing may be made of cotton, jute, silk or wool. The term organic textile includes, in more general terms, both garment and home textiles. In practice, the technical requirements for certification and origin are generally the same for organic clothing and organic textiles.

Organic cotton is generally defined as cotton that is organically grown from non-genetically modified plants and that no synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides have been used during production. Production activities should also support and increase biodiversity and biological cycles. In other words, in order to be able to evaluate cotton fields organically, they must meet the relevant legal regulations and the requirements of domestic and foreign standards.

In this context, the materials of organic fabrics are grown according to the standards of organic agriculture. These fabrics consist of cotton, jute, silk or wool. However, organic labeled fabrics are not necessarily 100 organic. The yarns may be formed from natural and recycled fibers. Nevertheless, it is healthy in terms of human health and protection of the natural environment. No pesticides, herbicides or man-made fertilizers were used in the production process.

Organic fabrics make a lot of difference. Perfect for sensitive skin, children and people with allergies. These fabrics are softer, more durable and do not harm the environment with harmful chemicals. If all this is kept in mind, people only need to use organic textiles.

Polyester, which is a biodegradable material, means that it will remain in a drain or dump site for a long time in case of waste and will cause great damage to the environment. In addition, this product is made from oil, which is essentially a non-renewable resource and is not environmentally friendly. Today, many well-known brands have started to focus on organic textile products in order to ensure sustainable development.

Organic cotton does not contain harmful chemicals and pesticides, so it causes less allergies. Fabrics woven from this cotton are softer and more comfortable. More importantly, it provides more environmental benefits than human health benefits.

In short, organic means naturalness and everything that is natural is good. The only downside of organic textiles today is that their cost is slightly higher. Organic cotton is produced and certified according to organic farming standards. Production activities are carried out by natural processes rather than artificial inputs, protecting the health of the soil, ecosystem and people. Organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or genetically modified organisms. Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the common environment and ensure a good quality of life for all involved.

Organic cotton is better for the environment. Integrated soil management is adopted with different soil and water conservation measures. Efficient stormwater management serves as insurance for products during rainfall periods. Cow manure is added to the biomass compost to improve soil fertility, accelerate decomposition and improve soil biology that protect crops from disease. Similar efforts are made to expand organic production.

For this purpose, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has been developed to identify requirements for the collection of raw materials and the preparation of organic textile products through production that is recognized worldwide and environmentally and socially responsible. Products certified in this way provide assurance to the consumer.

EUROLAB also provides organic textile testing services within the scope of numerous laboratory services. Thanks to these tests, enterprises receive more efficient, high performance and quality testing services and provide safe, fast and uninterrupted service to their customers.

In addition to the organic textile testing services provided within the scope of laboratory services, EUROLAB also provides other testing services.
