Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)
The RWS requires all sites to be certified, beginning with the wool farmers and through to the garment manufacturer.
RWS is part of a suite of standard that Textile Exchange develops and manages as a suite of standards that provide the industry with a way to verify sustainability claims from the raw material to the final product.
RWS Certification is a tool for companies to validate and communicate sustainability claims about their products reaching back to raw material level. Certification offers a way to verify key consumer concerns such as environmental, social, and animal welfare practices and to confirm that the final product is traceable to best practice.
