Design for a Better Future

The trends you set go beyond fashion.

The more brands and designers that come together for sustainable fashion, the greater our impact will be.  COT helps designers with sustainable sourcing by connecting you with a traceable supply chain, promoting your designs globally, and even helping you sell your apparel at our online shop and partner retailers.

 
Our Collective Impact

Know Your Source.

48% of brands don’t trace their factories.

75% don’t trace their fabrics.

91% don’t trace their raw materials.

GOTS Certification gives 100% traceability.

Logo-GOTS

The Global Organic Textile Standard is the gold standard of the clothing industry. Created by leading international organizations from the USA, UK, Germany, and Japan, the GOTS Label certifies all companies in the clothing production process to be environmentally and socially responsible. Because each company is certified, you know exactly who made your clothes, your fabric, your yarn, and even your organic cotton.

How Our Sustainable Production Works

Produce clothing that’s good for the world and reach a global audience.

 

CO-Design Consciously

High-quality organic cotton and non-toxic inks are just some of our main design features. Send us any samples, similar apparel, style sheets, size charts, or ideas you have and we’ll help you turn it into sustainable fashion. Our GOTS producers can make almost any type of cotton-based apparel. We can also explore other eco-fabrics such as hemp or recycled polyester.

CO-Produce Ethically

We only produce when we’ve reached the best quality. After approval of sizing and final samples, your clothing will be created by GOTS-certified producers. That means your apparel goes through a traceable, ethical, and sustainable supply chain. Final production includes labels and tags. We also have low MOQ’s, ~250 per style/color.

CO-Promote Globally

Connect One is a growing international network, and we want the world to know who the change-makers are in the industry. Moreover, we do promotion in COT style- with heart, authenticity, and creativity. We offer our expertise in online marketing, PR, e-commerce, creative media while connecting you to our fashion partners to expand your reach in the world.
