GOTS CERTIFIED

We are proud to announce that our classic and ongoing collection SOFT by Soft Gallery is now produced in GOTS certified organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard). This applies to items with our classic all over Owl print. You can find these items in both our SOFT by Soft Gallery and HOME collections. For us, GOTS covers the entire value chain, from the harvesting of raw organic materials to the environmental and social responsibility in manufacturing; as well as to labeling and packaging. GOTS certification is an important step towards a more sustainable industry, and we are naturally very proud to take part in this initiative.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

In 2019, Soft Gallery began to work with three important initiatives close to our hearts. Together with our supplier, we are helping support a voluntary organization in Mali, called Mission Africa. Styles, as well as fabrics, are sent to Mission Africa’s Euroshop with the surplus going directly to the betterment of locals via village development and through education, specifically directed towards women. 

In Ukraine, we are supporting an orphanage in the local town where we manufacture by donating textiles and clothing from production.

Last but not least we have created the Harvest Keychains in close collaboration with Copenhagen based children’s charity shop Heidi & Bjarne.

The Harvest Keychain Project is a handmade collection sewn from leftover fabrics that have been upcycled to sweet fruits and veggies contributing to a more zero-waste approach. Each keychain from The Harvest Keychain Project has been made with lots of love by disadvantaged individuals who are in need of a helping hand.  

Sustainability is a deep-rooted part of our brand DNA and we place great emphasis on purity, quality and the environment. Our mission is to continue to work towards producing an even larger part of our seasonal collections sustainably and adhering to the Global Organic Textile Standard.

Our focus on high quality and long-lasting items is another approach to sustainability – creating clothes that can last and be passed over to loved ones from generation to generation.

Soft Gallery is proudly GOTS certified and works with BSCI and sa8000 certified factories

These initiatives are of the utmost importance to us.

OEKO-TEX

Confidence in textiles is the motto of the independent testing for harmful substances in textile products for all types which pose no risk whatsoever to health. It has been this way since 1992, according to OEKO-TEXr Standard 100. With “globalization of the world” and the size of the textile production business in mind, the OEKO-TEX criteria catalog serves as a guide to the manufacturers of the textile and clothing industry for the evaluation of potentially harmful substances in textiles, which are all based on scientific research.

The OEKO-TEX label indicates the benefits of skin-friendly clothing and other textiles to interested end users. The test label thereby provides an important decision-making tool for purchasing textiles.
