All Doug's™ embroidery is done with the highest quality rayon thread — a thread made from wood pulp or cotton. Even though a high level of production is needed during manufacturing, it's vastly better than virgin polyester.
All products are strictly made using certified, high quality materials. Various biodegradable and recycled materials are used, but Doug's™ often prioritises quality product, manufacturer responsibility and worker well-being.
Doug's™ Basics Certifications
GOTS® — The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS®) certification is considered the leading organic textile standard. It certifies the cotton is grown without GMOs and chemicals (fertilisers, pesticides and insecticides). GOTS certifies that finished products have been manufactured without any toxic products at all stages (spinning/weaving/dyeing/printing/garment).
The Standard also certifies controlled water management, and sets requirements concerning working and social conditions — ensuring employment is freely chosen, freedom of association and collective bargaining, free from child labour and standardised occupational health and safety (OHS).
GRS® — The Global Recycled Standard (GRS®) certifies the percentage of recycled content, ensures social and environmental practices and requires chemical restrictions. The primary goal of GRS® is to reduce the harmful social, environmental and chemical impacts of production.
RCS® — The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS®) certifies the material composition is truly recycled.
OCS® — The Organic Content Standard (OCS®) certifies the material composition is truly organic.
