It is our firm belief that the materials we use in our products should be both environmentally benign (to the best extent possible) and are not harmful to human health.
Therefore, our knitting facility in Macedonia uses only OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified raw materials to knit our fabrics. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production.
Testing for harmful substances includes:
- illegal substances
- legally regulated substances
- known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals
- as well as parameters for health care
In their entirety the requirements clearly exceed existing national legislation. The full list of limit values and fastness is available here.
We can also offer our clients bluesign® approved fabrics for their products. The bluesign® system is the solution for a sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right from the beginning of the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. This not only ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide but also provides confidence to the consumer to acquire a sustainable product.
