OEKO - TEX What is it, and what does it mean to you?
Our goal is to make you love your bedding so much that you want to use it again and again. At the same time, we also believe that to get that feeling, it is important to know how it has been produced.
Manufacturers in the textile market are constantly developing new production processes to reduce costs. So unless proper precautions are followed, these production systems can lead to a veritable tidal wave of safety issues that negatively impact our society and the planet. Fortunately, there are international entities that test and certify textile products to ensure the consumer which companies bring the best product to the market. That is why we have chosen to be Oeko-Tex certified, which is the world's leading health and environmental labeling within textiles.
A rundown on OEKO-TEX textile testing systems
OEKO-TEX is a coalition of 18 independent textile testing and research institutes with offices spanning the globe. The association utilizes a wide range of testing types and certifications for textile products to ensure that potential customers understand all aspects of what they are buying. To give you a better understanding of what the OEKO-TEX test covers, here is an overview of the main testing and certification systems used to evaluate textile products:
OKEO - TEX Standard 100
STANDARD 100 is "a comprehensive third-party testing and certification system for textile products at all stages of production." The purpose of this tool is to provide a consistent, objective method for assessing textile products for safety. STANDARD 100 is so forward-thinking that it accounts for harmful chemicals that are not yet legally regulated, meaning that its testing criteria go far beyond current legal regulations. STANDARD 100 tests for environmentally relevant substance classes and all other factors related to consumer safety. Simply put, textiles certified by STANDARD 100 use regulated materials that will not harm you, your partner or your pets in any way.
