The OE standards are chain-of-custody standards that give third party verification to a final product containing a given amount of organically grown cotton. The OE 100 and OE Blended are voluntary standards and do not address the use of chemicals or any other aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic fiber.  The OE 100 tracks the purchase, handling, and use of 100 percent certified organic cotton fiber in yarns, fabrics and finished goods through the use of transaction certificates.
