Tarkine works closely with Continental Clothing Co., an Australian based textile company.
Continental Clothing Co. is certified under the Organic Content Standard OCS by the Control Union Certifications, licence CU 828402.
The aim of this standard is to guarantee the traceability and integrity of the raw materials during all the manufacturing stages.
The OCS accomplishes this goal by verifying the presence and amount of Organic Material in a final product. It provides a strong chain of custody system from the source of the organic raw material to the final product through certification.
The standard has two different types of Certification:
- OCS 100 is used only for product that contains 95% or more organic material
- OCS blended is used for products that contain a minimum 5% of organic material blended with conventional or synthetic raw materials
