1IFOAM EU Position Paper on Organic Textile –protecting the credibility of the organic label

Executive summary: IFOAM EU RecommendationIn the European Union (EU), the use of the term “organic” in relation to textiles is not protected in the same way as it is forthefoodchain. There is a need to improve credibility, and thus ensure that when the term organic is used in this sector, it relates to the whole production and processing chain, just as is the case for certified organic food and drink products.As a first step, IFOAM EU recommends that for fibre to be called “organic”, it should be produced according to globally recognised organic regulations (such as the EU Organic Regulation or the US National Organic Programme).
