In 2017, Pierre Robert switched from using conventional cotton to GOTS-certified organic cotton in every garment in its underwear collection for children.
GOTS-certified cotton requires less water than conventional cotton, and is produced with no pesticides, harmful chemicals or emissions. The certification system sets comprehensive environmental and social standards, aimed at ensuring decent working conditions for the workers making the clothing and protecting the environment as best possible throughout the value chain. This means that, through the GOTS system, Pierre Robert has worked to promote sustainability at every stage of the production process, and that every part of the value chain of Pierre Robert’s cotton undergarments for children is now GOTS-certified. The collection comes in fun colours and designs that children like. Since 2016, Pierre Robert has also produced women’s boxer and high-waist panties in GOTS certified organic cotton.
