OEKO-TEX
BHC 10585_GREEN2.jpg

The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is a comprehensive, independent testing and certification system for textile products at all stages of processing. Textiles can only be certified if all components meet the applicable requirements. The test criteria are updated annually and go far beyond legal regulations. A prerequisite for the certification of products according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is that all components of an article meet the required criteria - in addition to the outer fabric, also for example, the sewing threads, interlinings, prints, etc. as well as non-textile accessories such as buttons, zippers, rivets etc. All of our yarns are certified according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 (product class 1). Textile trust - this is the motto of the independent testing institutes of the International OEKO-TEX® Association with their tests for harmful substances according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 since 1992 for textile products that are perfectly healthy all kinds

OEKO-TEX® STeP stands for Sustainable Textile & Leather Production and is a modular certification system for production facilities in the textile and leather industry. STeP has the goal of permanently implementing environmentally friendly production processes, improving occupational safety and promoting socially acceptable working conditions in production companies. The target group of the STeP certification are both textile and leather manufacturers as well as brands and trading companies.

STeP stands out from other certification systems in that it not only takes individual sustainability aspects into account, but also carries out a holistic analysis and evaluation of the production conditions. STeP analyzes all important company areas within the framework of 6 modules:

  • chemical management

  • environmental performance

  • environmental management

  • Social responsibility

  • quality management

  • Health protection and occupational safety

The aim of the STeP certification is the permanent implementation of environmentally friendly production processes, social working conditions and optimal occupational safety.

Sustainable fashion, ethical clothing, fair production have many meanings. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has a clearly defined set of criteria and is transparent.

  • Fibre products

  • Yarns

  • Fabrics

  • Clothing

  • Home textiles

  • Mattresses

  • Personal care products

  • Textiles with food contact (e.g. cheesecloth)

With a harmonised textile standard, textile processors and manufacturers can export their products worldwide with a single and globally accepted organic certification. Only thanks to this transparency will consumers be able to choose guaranteed organic products from environmentally friendly supply chains.

GRS | Global Recycled Standard

The GRS is designed to boost the use of recycled materials. The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) set the criteria for third-party certification of recycled materials and chain of custody. The GRS includes a higher (50%) minimum recycled content percentage and additional social and environmental requirements related to processing and chemical use.

Chain of custody tracks fibers at every stage of their journey. Chain of custody ensures that claims about the fiber content in a final product, such as “organically grown” or “recycled,” are accurate. It’s important because raw materials often travel all around the world to be spun, dyed, woven, cut, and sewn. By having your product certified to a third-party content claim 

standard like ours, you can make sure that at every stage along this journey, all necessary measures have been taken to ensure that what goes in, comes out.
