IVN Best - Internationale Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e. V.

IVN Naturleder | PCU-Deutschland

What it is about

The organisation IVN ( ‘Internationale Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e. V.’) was founded in 1999 and has developed two quality seals:
IVN NATURTEXTIL ZERTIFIZIERT BEST  and IVN NATURLEDER ZERTIFIZIERT. These two seals are responsible for safeguarding and reviewing the entire textile production chain, both in terms of ecological standards and social accountability. The IVN standards provides ecological quality and encourages eco-friendly textile and leather products. As far as the consumer is concerned this certification brings a greater sense of confidence as residue limits are much more stringent than what is legally permitted.

IVN NATURTEXTIL ZERTIFIZIERT BEST is a standard for eco-friendly textiles with the strictest ecological requirements for ecological textile production. The minimum requirement for this certification is the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) plus additional requirements regarding use of material (only organic materials are allowed), use of chemical inputs, social criterias and environmental requirements.


  • Only organic materials are allowed as raw material for textile production
  • Traceability and identification of organic material through complete chain-of-custody, based on GOTS
  • Defined chemical restrictions and residue allowances, based on GOTS with additional, stricter requirements
  • social and environmental practices, plus additional requirements than in GOTS defined
