Sustainbility

Our undergarment are guaranteed by OEKO-TEX. The partner institutes have joint responsibility for the development of test methods and limit values which form the basis for the following standards:

 

  • Production facility certification according to STeP by OEKO-TEX® (Sustainable Textile & Leather Production).

 

 

The independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes are entitled to conduct appropriate laboratory tests or company audits in accordance with worldwide standardized guidelines. These comprehensive product and process tests guarantee risk management, consumer and environmental protection, as well as legal conformity.

 

What does the label mean?

If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. The test is conducted by our independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day.
