New Organic Content Standard for textiles

Written by John Mowbray

OCS_logoTEXAS – Textile Exchange together with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) has launched the new Organic Content Standard (OCS), which allows textile companies to trace organic raw materials as they moves through the textile supply chain. The OCS will replace the existing OE standards (OE 100 and OE Blended), which were developed in 2004 to track organic cotton; although the new standard will allow certified organic input of any raw material such as wool, hemp and other natural textile fibres.
