Certifications

MenoMieux does not require its brand partners to hold certifications because of the high cost of certifications.  Any certifications held by our brand partners are listed below.

MenoMieux does review certifications attached to the materials being used by each brand to confirm that the materials are aligned with our standards and of the highest quality.

 

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) 

A textile product carrying the GOTS label grade ‘organic’ must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibers, and a product with the label grade ‘made with organic’ must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibers.

Responsible Wool Certified

The RWS ensures wool is from responsibility treated sheep and confirms that farms follow enhanced land management methods that protect soil health, biodiversity and native species. The standard includes requirements for animal welfare that must be met for farms to be certified. Criteria are designed to support the Five Freedoms for animal welfare under human control.

Fairtrade America

Fairtrade America standards are a blend of social, economic and environmental criteria that support the sustainable development of small producer organizations and agricultural workers in the Global South.
