The Oeko-tex Standard
100 is a global uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials at all stages of production. The “ confidence in textiles” is the best known certification label for products that are tested and guaranteed to be free of toxic substances. The objective of the standard is to produce textile products that are ecologically harmless for humans. It was the first safety standard that enabled a practical assessment of potential harmful substances in textile products.
The standard was developed by the Austrian and German Textile research institutes.
