Oeko-Tex: certified socks, underwear and T-shirts
Oeko-Tex Standard 100
Your clothing lies directly against your skin. The area between the skin and the fabric is an unpleasant environment where sweat, heat, cold and friction can all prevail. This explains why textile safety is important to us.
Our socks, underwear and T-shirts have Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certification and are therefore 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested.
Why the standard was introduced
The Oeko-Tex® Standard was introduced in the early nineties as a response to the general public’s demand for textiles that did not pose a risk to health. Since then, the Oeko-Tex® Association – made up of a series of independent testing bodies – has been guaranteeing safe textile products.
The Oeko-Tex® criteria catalogue provides a consistent, scientifically sound benchmark for the evaluation of potentially hazardous materials in textiles for companies in the textile and clothing industries.
What is Oeko-Tex?
‘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.
Guaranteed not harmful to health
The Oeko-Tex® label therefore offers customers the guarantee that their clothing is non-hazardous to health. This can be an important decision factor during the purchasing process.
