OEKO-TEX Standard 100
OEKO-TEX Standard 100
Many of our fabrics are OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified. This means that the product does not contain any harmful substances. Better for the environment, your skin and your health! OEKO-TEX tests every component of textile products for the presence of harmful substances. This concerns a whole series of test parameters that can be harmful to humans as well as the environment. Included are harmful substances that are prohibited or regulated by law, chemicals that are harmful to health but that are not prohibited by law, and other parameters that are included in the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 as a precautionary measure.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certificates
OEKO-TEX uses four different product classes. A product class is a group of different articles categorized according to their intended utilisation. The various product classes differ in the requirements that the products have to fulfil and by the limit values that are applied.
Product class 1: This product class includes products for babies and has the strictest requirements and limit values
Product class 2: This product class includes products with skin contact. This comprises articles that come into direct contact with the skin to a large extent (blouses, shirts, underwear, mattresses, etc.)
Product class 3: This product class includes products without skin contact. This covers articles that have no or minimal contact with the skin (jackets and vests, belts, etc.)
Product class 4: This product class includes decoration materials. It covers all articles including initial products and accessories used for furnishing purposes (table cloths, curtains, upholstery fabrics, etc.)

Ecological and sustainable textiles
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified fabrics do not contain heavy metals, are not treated with harmful dyes and no pesticides have been used. This means that the working conditions are less harmful to health. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is not an environmental label, but it does have a beneficial effect on the environment by limiting harmful substances that normally end up in the soil or waste water. This is also reflected in our OEKO-TEX Standard 100 fabrics: by omitting these chemical and harmful substances during the production process, the textile is soft for the skin. This makes the fabric hypoallergenic and suitable for people with sensitive skin, children and babies.
