All Cloth-eez cotton products are Oeko-Tex Standard100 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 

For natural unbleached cotton items:  OEKO-TEX certificate number 20.HPK.35238 is valid.  Click to verify.

 Copy and paste the certificate number to verify it on the Oeko-Tex site.

 Are the natural unbleached cotton items certified to any organic standard?

No. Although our Cloth-eez natural unbleached cotton items are not certified, they are made out of raw 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 "natural unbleached" and "natural white" cotton items are not certified. 

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 raw 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 business 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),we believe that this is the best available on the market today for a muslin, birdseye, or prefold fabric cloth diapers. 

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.

In early 2024, a search of the GOTS database shows only 13 retailers of baby products in the USA with GOTS certification.  None in that GOTS list of 13 has cloth diapering products.  We believe that there are no fully certified organic cotton diaper products available from USA retailers. The13 US retailers that do have GOTS certification at the time of this writing are Aden + Anais, Bears for Humanity, Butterblu, Coyuchi, Hanna Andersson, Hope & Henry, Little Unicorn, Mighty, Modn Made, Monica and Andy, Oolie, Tabreeze and Under the Nile.

Disana isn't in the USA list of of retailers because they are in Germany but they do have GOTS certification. We import the Disana items directly from Germany for sale in the USA.
