Confidence in Textiles – this has been the motto of the independent testing for harmful substances according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 since 1992, for products of all kinds not dangerous to health.
For companies in the textile and clothing industry, the OEKO-TEX® criteria catalogue offers, for the first time, an uniform and scientifically proven assessment standard for the ecological safety of textile products which takes into account the globalised and highly fragmented nature of the textile supply chain.
The OEKO-TEX® label shows to end users the additional benefits of clothing and textile products, with guarantee they are tested and not dangerous to health. The OEKO-TEX® label therefore offers an important decision-making tool for purchasing.
Calze Tracy Srl is certified according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Class 1 and 2.
