MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®

MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® is a traceable product label for all kinds of textiles (e.g. garments, home textiles) and non-textile components (e.g. accessories). A MADE IN GREEN product ID proves that the product has been tested for harmful substances. This is achieved by certification according to STeP by OEKO-TEX®. It also guarantees that the textile product has been manufactured using sustainable processes under environmentally friendly and socially responsible working conditions. This is carried out through certification in accordance with STeP by OEKO-TEX®. The unique product ID can be used to trace the product. It can thus be shown where the different stages of product manufactoring have taken place.
