We set standards for tested quality.

The range of textiles on the market is constantly growing and so is consumer demand for safety. Consumers and buyers want to trust that product claims are true and use independent, 3rd-party verified labels and certificates as proof.

Whether international standards and norms, legal regulations or customer specifications, textiles must meet many requirements before they get to market. Brands, retailers and their suppliers need effective ways to manage their efforts and protect their reputations.

Hohenstein certifies products and processes for various features and functions. Hohenstein certificate holders draw on over 7 decades of experience to reassure customers with reliable, 3rd party certification. The Hohenstein Quality Label, the OEKO-TEX® system® and UV STANDARD 801 help companies ensure quality and communicate their efforts.

Hohenstein is a founding member of several associations that offer practical solutions for product stewardship.
