We believe in the fascinating possibilities of textile innovation for both people and the environment.

There's nothing we are in closer contact with than textiles. It's important that they look good, fit well, offer optimal performance and cause no harm.

We guarantee this with standard and customized testing, certification, research and product labels such as OEKO-TEX®, the Hohenstein Quality label and UV STANDARD 801, as well as transferring the knowledge we have built up over decades.

We focus on testing programs and research that accounts for real-life use conditions and the human - textile - environment interaction.
