GOTS is recognised as the leading textile standard for products made from organic fibers and companies must meet a set of strict environmental and social criteria to achieve annual certification.

For babies, organic cotton is safer to wear, especially on delicate skin. Piccalilly manufactures its clothes using organic cotton ensuring the environment where the cotton is grown is healthy for the farmers who grow it, as well as kinder for children who wears the clothes. Their organic cotton clothes are certified to GOTS standards and gently processed throughout the entire manufacturing process to ensure the end product is super soft and free from toxic chemicals.
Piccalilly’s organic cotton is sourced from a very special project called Chetna Organic, a fair-trade cotton programme with a mission to improve the livelihood of smallholder farmers by making their farm systems more sustainable and profitable. The Chetna farmers also own a 10% share in the factory that makes Piccalilly’s clothes.
Piccalilly pays a fair price for their clothing and the result is that the people who make its ranges receive a living wage and extra benefits including free transportation to work, company sponsored meals, healthcare and funding for their childrens' education. Piccallily was voted as the best eco fashion brand in the prestigious Junior Design Lifestyle Awards.
