The JAAF noted that Sri Lanka, known for its ability to produce high-end niche apparel, is now focused on enhancing its capacity to produce eco-friendly clothing using organic textiles, where compliance remains a key component. According to GOTS South Asian Representative Ganesh Kasekar, a 21 percent increase in certified facilities, compared to 2022, is seen in Sri Lanka, with 74 factories currently holding certification for the period of 2023/2024. Amongst these Sri Lankan companies, local apparel giants, including Hirdaramani International Exports, MAS Intimates and Brandix, have also obtained the GOTS certification for the sustainable production of children’s wear, ladies’ wear, men’s wear and baby wear.
