Oeko-Tex textiles and fabrics are certified free of harmful chemicals and are safe for human use. Organic certification stipulates that textile and fabric products are grown according to strict guidelines on the use of petroleum based fertilisers, pesticides and synthetic products. All components of a finished cotton product (thread, buttons etc) must meet strict standards.
The OEKO-TEX® certificate issued by the commissioned institute or the relevant certification centre is valid for a duration of 12 months. It documents that the listed items have successfully been tested according to the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and meet the requirements for a joint product class.
ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products can be used in a sustainable textile production. Each issued ECO PASSPORT certificate has an individual certificate number.
