OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Label: How safe are your textiles?
When it's time to wind down after a long day and turn in for the night, the safety of your sheets may not be at the forefront of your thoughts. However, from the clothes we wear to the sheets we sleep on, fabrics and textiles are an integral part of our daily lives. The sad truth is that not all fabrics are created equal when it comes to safety and sustainability. This is where the importance of OEKO-TEX Standard 100 comes in.
What is OEKO-TEX Standard 100?
OEKO-TEX may sound like the name of the latest futuristic software or a beautiful flower from Japan, but it's actually neither. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is an independent certification system that tests fabrics and textiles for harmful substances, ensuring that the products we use every day are safe for both us and the environment. Since its introduction in 1992, it has become the world's most recognizable label for textiles tested for harmful substances and is widely considered one of the most reliable indicators of textile safety. Choosing OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified products is a small yet impactful step towards creating a safer and more nonconsumptive world for ourselves and future generations.
Why should you say OK to OKEO-TEX?
The importance of OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification goes beyond just promoting ethical and responsible production practices. By choosing textiles with this certification, you can have peace of mind knowing that they are free from harmful substances. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification is only given to textile products that meet the stringent criteria of four different product classes: safe for infants, items with direct prolonged or large-area skin contact, textiles without or with little skin contact, and furnishing materials for decorative purposes. To ensure the safety of these products, they undergo rigorous laboratory testing to ensure that there are no harmful substances or chemicals woven into the fabric. By choosing OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified textiles, you can make a positive impact on both your health and the environment.
