Ensure your products do more than set trends.

Consumers base their purchasing decisions on more than just look and fit. They also care that textiles do not harm the health of their familes, the environment or workers. Consumers want to do the right thing but cannot assess these factors on their own.  They depend on brands and retailers to help.

Businesses have brands to protect. Buyers need a systematic way to integrate safety and sustainability into their supply chains and products.

The STANDARD 100 and LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® product labels give purchasers, brands, retailers and consumers the certainty that products were tested for harmful substances to meet strict OEKO-TEX® requirements. The MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® label shows that labeled clothing and home textiles have been manufactured in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible way. The OEKO-TEX® product labels create trust and brand loyalty.
