OEKO-TEX® Standard 100
All our latex meets the OEKO-TEX® Standard. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production.
Oeko-Tex researchers analyze the chemical content of consumer products. Materials are rigorously evaluated to determine the content levels of dozens of hazardous substances such as formaldehyde, pesticides, heavy metals, and preservatives. Oeko-Tex certification indicates a product is free of hazardous chemicals and is both non-toxic and safe for consumers. An Oeko-Tex stamp of approval means a product is “clean” inside and out.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
GOTS is an abbreviation for Global Organic Textile Standard and it’s the Global leading certificate for organic products which include ecological as well as social criteria.
This standard applies to the fibres, yarns, fabrics, and clothes and it covers every step from production to labelling and transport. GOTS includes a ban of toxic chemicals and has detailed social criteria, for example no child labour and safe and hygienic working conditions (this is monitored).
The GOTS certificate also includes stringent requirements to wastewater to make sure manufacturing doesn’t harm the environment. To achieve the GOTS certification, companies must live up to these and many more criteria.
The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognised requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer. Textile processors and manufacturers are enabled to export their organic fabrics and garments with one certification accepted in all major markets.
