100% organic cotton & recycled materials

All Hertie School garments are made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and recycled polyester.

In contrast to conventional cotton, the cultivation of organic cotton does without chemical insecticides, fertilizers and pesticides that are harmful to farmers and the environment. This means that no hazardous or toxic substances are introduced into the soil, nearby rivers or lakes. This ensures a safe environment and health for farmers and their families.


Fair & environmentally friendly working conditions

Hertie School uses textiles from STANLEY/STELLA, a member of the Fair Wear Foundation, for its products.

The textiles are made in Bangladesh. The manufacturing factories are among the most responsible factories in the country with the highest ethical standards. By supporting the textile industry in Bangladesh, STANLEY/STELLA contributes to the improvement of the country's economy and the social advancement of the workforce. As an independent organization, the Fair Wear Foundation inspects the factories on site and supports unions in constantly improving working conditions.

All manufacturing factories are GOTS-certified. The GOTS seal is the world's leading standard for the processing of fabrics made from organic natural fibers. It defines environmental and social criteria at a high level that must be observed along the entire textile production chain.
