All Cloth-eez cotton products are Oeko-Tex Stadard100 certified.  When a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. 

 

For regular cotton items:  OEKO-TEX certificate number 17.HPK.12333 is valid.   Click to verify

 Are the organic cotton items certified to any organic standard?

No. Although our Cloth-eez organic cotton items are not certified, they are made of cotton that has the coveted certification initials that we are not allowed to use unless the entire process is certified to that. We have the certificates for our cotton purchases, but we can’t use them because it is not enough. This makes sense, too, because to be certified, it really needs to be fully certified for it to be meaningful. Perhaps someday. For now, all of our organic cotton items are “made of” organic even though the cotton that we buy to weave the fabrics has the initials. 

To our knowledge no brand has achieved certification on prefolds, flats and fitted diapers. We can't find any similar brand listed on the Global Standard website public look up page. If you find a competing product that has full certification, please let us know. As of this writing, no brand in the USA has it for similar types of woven fabric cloth diaper items.

To be certified, the entire process must be certified and inspected. We only have one part of it which is the cotton fiber itself. We don’t have the processor, sewing facility nor is our Vermont warehouse and order fulfillment space inspected nor certified. It’s beyond the scope of our small family owned business. Our small buisness has just 6 people and we can’t manage it.

So, they are not certified. But with our OEKO-TEX standard 100 certification (which means they were tested in a lab for a bunch of harmful substances and passed) and the fact that they are made out of organic cotton, we believe that this is the best available on the market today for a muslin, birdseye, or prefold fabric cloth diapers. Because of the rules, which are valuable and important, we are not able to prove that they are made out of organic cotton but indeed they are.

Our only certified items are Disana wools and Under The Nile cottons which are clearly stated on those item pages and you can verify on the global-standard. dot org public database.
