As Calik Denim, we are passionate to provide a credible assurance to our customers, ensuring that all our production processes are certified under the below-stated standards:

EU Ecolabel

EU Ecolabel, acknowledged across Europe and worldwide, aims to support products and services with reduced environmental impact. It is the label of environmental excellence that is issued to products and services achieving high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle: starting from raw material extraction, including production till distribution and disposal. The criteria of EU Ecolabel was developed by concentrating on the phases where a product has the highest environmental impact. This phase changes from a product to another. With this aspect, the experts aim to reduce the harm given to the environment as much as possible. To promote circular economy, EU Ecolabel encourages companies to create less CO2 and waste while production and helps European consumers to detect more environmentally friendly and healthy products and services. Currently, EU Ecolabel criteria is available for 25 different product groups and only the products which belong to these groups can be awarded with the label.

Nordic Swan Ecolabel

Nordic Swan Ecolabelled textiles have to comply with a range of environmental, health and quality requirements. The fiber production as well as the use of chemicals during manufacturing are core issues for the criteria. By both limiting values and prohibiting some substances that are harmful to health and the environment, the requirements for chemical usage is identified. Thus, the criteria focuses on decreasing the environmental impact of the manufacturing while taking the health of both workers and consumers into consideration. Nordic Swan Ecolabel also evaluates the quality of the textiles by considering some factors such as colour fastness and shrinkage. The weight of the cotton used in the production of ecolabelled textiles has to be composed of minimum 10% cotton that was organically farmed or farmed during a transition to organic farming.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)

This standard defines requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible production till labelling in order to give a guarantee to the end user.

The processing, production, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution steps are evaluated within the scope of this standard.

GRS (Global Recycled Standard)

The Global Recycled Standard tracks and confirms the content of recycled materials in a final product whilst assuring manufacturing requirements such as social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.

Increasing the use of recycled materials in products and decreasing the harm resulted by the manufacturing of it are the main purposes of the GRS.

OCS (Organic Content Standard)

The Organic Content Standard is a global and voluntary standard providing assurance for materials originating on a farm certified to approved national organic standards. It is used to check raw materials that are grown organically from land to end product.

The OCS aims to increase the production of organic farming.

RCS (Recycled Claim Standard)

Requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and custody chain are identified by Recycled Claim Standard. The standard carries out
evaluation and verification of the presence and amount of recycled material in an end product. Social or environmental conditions of processing and production, quality or legal compliance are not covered by RCS.


Ensuring high level of safety from harmful levels of chemical substances, the Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® is a global testing and certification system for textile products from the thread to the ready-to-use items. Several regulated and non-regulated substances which may be harmful to human health are covered in the Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® criteria catalogue.
