MADE IN GREEN means sustainability and traceability.

MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® is a traceable product label that is issued for textiles or leather that have been:

  • Tested for harmful substances
  • Produced in environmentally friendly facilities
  • Produced in safe and socially responsible workplaces

The unique product ID allows anyone to trace where the product was manufactured, enabling a whole new level of transparency for companies and consumers.
