With over 45,000 certificates issued for millions of textile products, the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 has become the world's leading label for textiles screened for harmful substances.
The Oeko-Tex system assures that textiles which have been tested successfully and awarded a certificate are free of concentrations of harmful substances which are detrimental to health.
