Certificates

We take our production principles very seriously. This is why we have chosen to work with only natural materials produced in the best environments under the best circumstances. Our current production includes organic cotton, conventional cotton and linen.

Our products carry a series of certificates, which can be confusing even for the most passionate environmentalist. It is imperative to our company that our production remains environmentally conscious with a focus on sustainability. We have absolutely zero tolerance for child labor and will under no circumstances work with factories that have poor social responsibility policies.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. This means that:

  • Production of all types of textile products which are safe from a human-ecological point of view

  • Facilitate and accelerate delivery relationships for manufacturers and retailers wishing to offer their customer's product safety.

  • Reliable product labelling for consumers who place great emphasis on textiles that are safe and harmless to health.

  • Legal conformity for importers, retailers, and manufacturers.

GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard)

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibers. This includes ecological and social criteria compliance regulated and backed-up by independent certification of the entire supply chain. 

Fiber production

  • Certification of fibers from conversion period is possible if the applicable farming standard permits such certification

  • A textile product carrying the GOTS label grade ‘organic’ must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibers whereas a product with the label grade ‘made with organic’ must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibers.

Environmental Criteria

  • At all processing stages, organic fiber products must be separated from conventional fiber products and must be clearly identified

  • All chemical inputs (e.g. dyes, auxiliaries and process chemicals) must be evaluated and meet basic requirements on toxicity and biodegradability/limitability

  • Ban on critical inputs such as toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, aromatic solvents, functional nano particles, genetically modified organisms (GMO) and their enzymes

  • The use of synthetic sizing agents is restricted; knitting and weaving oils must not contain heavy metals

  • Bleaches must be based on oxygen (no chlorine bleaching)

  • Azo dyes that release carcinogenic amine compounds are prohibited

  • Discharge printing methods using aromatic solvents and plastisol printing methods using phthalates and PVC are prohibited

  • Restrictions for accessories (e.g. no PVC, nickel or chrome permitted, all polyester must be post-consumer recycled from 2014 onwards)

  • All operators must have an environmental policy including target goals and procedures to minimize waste and discharges

  • Wet-processing units must keep full records of the use of chemicals, energy, water consumption and wastewater treatment, including the disposal of sludge. The wastewater from all wet-processing units must be treated in a functional waste water treatment plant

  • Packaging material must not contain PVC. From 1 January 2014 onwards, any paper or cardboard used in packaging material, hang tags, swing tags etc. must be post-consumer recycled or certified in accordance with FSC or PEFC
