The basic concept of the OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances has been for 25 years now to ensure the highest possible degree of human-ecological product safety for consumers, regardless of the materials the tested sales items are made of.

With our LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® we have consistently pursued our philosophy that testing for harmful substances should be applicable to as many products available in the market as possible, thus contributing to an effective consumer protection.

Our third-party label allows manufacturers and sellers of leather articles to visibly and transparently document their product stewardship, and provides consumers with a reliable tool to support their buying decisions.
