OEKO-TEX® is an environmental certification system relating to the entire textile production process. In order for a product to be awarded the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate, it must undergo rigorous testing which ensures its production process is harmless in human ecological terms.
A fabric can only be awarded the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate if it meets a strict set of environmental criteria which go far beyond the necessary legal requirements.
The end result? Peace of mind for both the client and the end user.
Why should the fabrics you choose have the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification?
STANDARD 100 certification controls the use of chemicals used in the production process, as well as ensuring that there are no harmful substances remaining in the end product which could irritate or damage the skin.
It puts consumer safety and environmental responsibility at the heart of textile manufacturing. By selecting STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics, you can be reassured that you are making a safe and environmentally-friendly choice for your design requirements.
What is it about STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics that makes them a better choice?
STANDARD 100 certification means that environmental factors are given careful consideration at every stage of the production process.
This means that the use of chemicals is closely monitored and the criteria for certification is updated every year. And you’ll be pleased to hear that when STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics are washed, they do not release any harmful residues.
