CERTIFICATIONS & RECOGNITIONS
IN THE SAC is proud to be certified with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the leading standard for the processing of textile goods using organic fibres, providing international common understanding of environmentally friendly production systems and social accountability in the organic textile sector.
GOTS was founded with the aim to harmonise the various different certifications in organic textiles, as well as to develop a set of global standards and recognised requirements.
IN THE SAC designs exclusively with European Flax® certified Linen. The European Flax® label certifies traceability at every step of processing, produced exclusively in France, Belgium, or the Netherlands.
The EUROPEAN FLAX® Charter, signed by our Flax producers, guarantees linen cultivation that respects the environment and commits to zero irrigation, zero GMO, and zero waste. The process of fibre extraction is 100% mechanical, meaning zero chemicals are used during the process. The Charter also recognises that all farming and milling is in compliance with the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) framework. The ILO is committed to social justice and internationally recognised human and labour rights.
IN THE SAC linens are credited with the OEKO-TEX® 100 certification, ensuring no harmful or toxic chemicals have been used during any part of the production process. From threads to buttons - each product component has been tested for harmful substances and the OEKO-TEX® 100 certification confirms that the piece therefore is harmless to human health.
THE ROYAL WARRANT
IN THE SAC partners with Flax suppliers who have been recognised with The Royal Warrant with the status of Purveyor To The Court, appointed by the court of the Netherlands.
The Royal Warrant was first introduced by King Willem I in 1815 to recognise Dutch companies with a long history, a dedication to quality and prominent position within their industry.
