Sustainability from cultivation to recycling - Dibella Good Textiles

In close cooperation with the Chetna cooperative in India, we are able to offer a range of products made from probably the most sustainable cotton on the market. Through the cooperative, farmers receive non-GMO seeds, and valuable training on growing without pesticides or artificial irrigation. The farmers' families have a secure income through price and purchase guarantees. All production steps are GOTS/Fairtrade certified. In addition, we are committed to improving living conditions in the growing regions through our GoodTextiles Foundation.

Dibella takes responsibility here and is committed to human rights, environmental protection and health. Sustainability that benefits everyone involved. This quality requires the highest standards. 

Follow our transparent supply chain from its beginnings with the smallest farmer!

Micro farmers - organic cotton

1. Micro farmers

Our textiles with the GOTS Fairtrade seal set quality standards right from the start. Already during the cultivation of the organic cotton with the smallest farmers, the following requirements are met:

  • Use of organic seeds
  • Ecological cultivation of the fields
  • Higher income
  • Neither child nor forced labor

2. Cooperative

The cooperative, comparable to a cooperative, supports the micro-farmers, for example by guaranteeing the purchase of the cotton harvest. The "umbrella" of the cooperative offers security and other advantages:

  • Purchase of cotton at fair prices
  • Training and support for the farmers
  • Investment in infrastructure projects in the region

Ginning - extracts the seed from the harvested plants

3. Ginning

The so-called "ginning" extracts the seed from the harvested plants. This seed can be used again by the farmer and does not have to be purchased anew. A resource-saving process that brings further benefits:

  • Mechanical separation of fibers and seeds
  • Ginning without hazardous chemicals
  • Obtaining new organic seed for the micro-farmers

4. Spinning

The production facilities for further processing of the organic cotton are all Fairtrade certified and stand out for their compliance with the strict specifications:

  • Socially responsible manufacturing
  • Neither child nor forced labor
  • Compliance with legal labor protection
Spinning - organic cotton

Weaving - high quality woven fabrics

5. Weaving

This production step is also based on the responsible treatment of employees and the environment:

  • High-quality woven fabrics
  • Quality assurance
  • Environmentally and socially responsible process

6. Dyeing

This is where the fabrics are given their desired appearance. During the bleaching and dyeing processes, our partners reliably and verifiably comply with the relevant guidelines:

  • Bleaching and dyeing that is harmless to health
  • Clarification and treatment of waste water
  • Consideration of occupational safety and environmental protection
  • High level of consumer protection by not using chemicals that are hazardous to health


7. Sewing

The seamstresses and sewers who process the fabrics work under humane conditions. All employees receive recognition and appreciation for their performance:

  • Fair working conditions
  • Attention to the health of the seamstresses and sewers
  • Occupational safety standards
  • Fire and building protection

8. Dibella

  • Product selection according to environmental, social and quality criteria.

The transparent supply chain offers advantages to industrial laundries in terms of textile properties, as well as many opportunities for communication:

  • Environmentally friendly washing process
  • Sustainable products for textile leasing
  • Laundry leasing supports multiple use in the cycle

10. Hotel

Beyond the pure laundry service, the hotelier receives a sustainable added value. By using the certified textile concept, he can clearly distinguish himself from his competitors and offer his guests a special product and the associated good feeling:

  • Provides fair and ecological product for the guest.
  • Creates a good feeling and experience in the hotel

11. Guest

Discreetly, but clearly, the use of sustainably and fairly produced textiles is pointed out. The guest can thus directly experience the added value and will associate the hotel stay with a particularly good feeling, gladly come back and recommend the hotel. 

  • Uses textiles without residues that are hazardous to health
  • Obtains ethical added value via the fair textile value chain down to the smallest farmer

12. Textil Service

  • Collects and sorts B2B used textiles
  • Feeds used textiles into a circular process
