Hero Oeko-Tex Standard 100
Certified & risk-free: Oeko-Tex Standard 100
You wear your socks directly against your skin. The area between skin and shoes is an unpleasant environment with sweat, heat, cold and friction. Textile reliability is therefore important to us.
Why it was introduced
The Oeko-Tex® Standard was introduced in the early nineties as a response to the needs of the general public for textiles which posed no risk to health. Since then, the Oeko-Tex® Association, made up of a series of independent testing bodies, has been guaranteeing safe textile products.
For companies in the textile and clothing industries, the Oeko-Tex® catalogue of criteria has provided a consistent, scientifically sound benchmark for the evaluation of potentially hazardous materials in textiles.
What does Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 mean?
"Trust in textiles" - synonymous with responsible textile production around the world, from the raw materials to the finished product. For industry and retail as well as for the buyers of fashionable, functional and colourful textiles.
Non-hazardous to the health
The Oeko-Tex® label therefore guarantees to customers that the clothing or other textiles they are about to buy are non-hazardous to their health, which can be an important factor in the decision-making process.
