Textile Exchange Standards


Textile Exchange develops and manages a suite of standards that provide the industry with a way to verify sustainability claims from the raw material to the final product. All Textile Exchange standards are developed through a multi-stakeholder approach to address gaps in available verification tools. We work to ensure these standards meet the needs of a growing and changing industry.

Our expertise is in standards development, revision, and ownership. Certification to our standards is conducted through third-party certification bodies (CBs).
