Memberships & Associations




Mantis World are proud to be a B Corp Certified business, joining a growing group of companies reinventing business by pursuing purpose as well as profit. B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, require evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices relating to energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity and corporate transparency. By achieving this certification, Mantis World have legally and publically embedded their commitment to purpose beyond profit. www.bcorporation.net



GOTS ensures that from the farmers onwards, every step of the supply chain is honouring organic and ethical practices. As a standard, its cohesiveness covers both social and environmental factors, making it a valuable certification to hold. All of our suppliers, from farm to factory, have to hold GOTS certifications. Each are audited separately, including us. However, only garments decorated by a GOTS certified processer can use the GOTS logo at their point of sale which is why we have removed the GOTS label in our garments, although they remain fully certified in accordance with the standard. Mantis World is certified by Control Union under reference CU811271. www.global-standard.org


OCS 100

OCS certifies the organic content of our garments. However, as a certification, it is not subject to decorators or distributors holding the same standard and can be labelled as an OCS-certified garment beyond the point of sale. It provides a strong chain of custody system from the source of the organic cotton to the final product through certification and independent verification. OCS 100 certifies that a garment is made from 100% organic or in conversion to organic cotton. Mantis World is certified by Control Union under license 811271. www.certifications.controlunion.com



OCS Blended indicates that whilst the majority of the garment is organic, it has been blended with another fibre such as rPET or viscose. Mantis World is certified by Control Union under license 811271. www.certifications.controlunion.com

RCS Blended TE Logo-1


Our rPET has been certified by RCS, which gives us the assurance that any recycled material has been fully vetted as being legitimately recycled. RCS tracks raw material throughout the supply chain and requires certification at each stage of manufacturing, beginning at the point of recycling. Mantis World is certified by Control Union under license 811271. www.certifications.controlunion.com



STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent product certification label for textiles that have been tested for harmful substances, dyestuffs and chemicals that may pose a health or environmental risk. Mantis World holds STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® product class 1 certification, offering the highest level of assurance for all components of our clothing from the fabric through to threads, zips, buttons and labels. www.oeko-tex.com.
