Products & Services

Product certifications according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 and OEKO-TEX® LEATHER STANDARD, for example, enable the use of certified source materials. At subsequent production stages, existing certificates are recognised for individual findings.
The use of dyestuffs, textile and leather chemicals certified according to OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT reduces the testing effort for harmful substances according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 and OEKO-TEX® LEATHER STANDARD as well as the effort for certification of environmentally friendly production conditions according to OEKO-TEX® STeP.
If you have your products tested for harmful substances according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 or OEKO-TEX® LEATHER STANDARD and prove with the STeP certification that you produce them under environmentally and socially responsible conditions, then you are entitled to mark your products with the OEKO-TEX® MADE IN GREEN label.
