The company was founded in 2010 by the owners Daniele and Güven Gencalp as Lillestoff UG and then transformed into Lillestoff GmbH in October 2013.
It is very important for them to work with high-quality fabrics from the beginning – do it right or don’t do it at all! For this reason, not only almost all of their fabrics are GOTS-certified, but also the company itself and the entire production. This is unique in Europe – one step ahead of their competitors.
What does GOTS mean?
All of the goods are produced according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and under consideration of high environmental and social criteria. As a GOTS-certified company, they are obliged to observe strict rules which ensure a sustainable production of the goods.
Biologically gained raw material, environmental and social responsible production and certain storage -and packaging rules- every step is strictly controlled under consideration of GOTS. The production is checked two times a year and everybody involved is examined carefully.
Another special thing to mention: their print method is also GOTS-certified and thus absolutely free of chemical substances.
These are the advantages of GOTS:
- Guarantee of environmental-friendly produced products
- Assume social responsibility and safe health of our children
- Transparency: Comprehensible quality control for customers
