What does the label mean?
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label; you can be confident that every component of this article, i.e., every thread, button, and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances. The article, therefore, is harmless for human health.
Our suppliers worked with independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes conducted the test based on the extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog.
In the test, they consider numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases, the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory provisions. It is not easy for our manufacturers to maintain an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day. The experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for them.
The independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes are entitled to conduct appropriate laboratory tests or company audits following worldwide standardized guidelines. These comprehensive products and process tests guarantee risk management, consumer and environmental protection, as well as legal conformity.
