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). The MADE IN GREEN label verifies that an article has been tested for harmful substances. This is carried out through certification in accordance with STANDARD 100 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®. You can use a unique product ID on the label to trace the countries and production facilities in which the labelled article was produced.

What does the label mean?

Each item labelled with MADE IN GREEN can be traced using a unique product ID or QR code. The label gives access to information regarding production facilities in which the textile was produced, the stage of production to which the fabrics belong and the countries in which manufacture took place. 

The MADE IN GREEN label gives you the certainty of knowing that the textile product is made:

  • with materials that have been tested for harmful substances 
  • in environmentally friendly facilities
  • in safe and socially responsible workplaces.
