Made in Green by Oeko-Tex

Oeko-Tex has added a new label to its product portfolio.

Made in Green by Oeko-Tex is a traceable product label which allows for communication throughout the supply chain all the way to the end-user.

The label ensures that all Made in Green textiles are not only tested for harmful substances, but also sustainably produced in accordance with Oeko-Tex guidelines.

For textile products that consumers buy at retail, the Oeko-Tex guidelines for obtaining the Made in Green label are as follows:

  • Any single component that equals or exceeds 5% of the total weight of the textile product must be supplied by STeP by Oeko-Tex certified production facilities. At least 85% of the weight of a single piece of textile must be supplied by STeP by Oeko-Tex certified production facilities.
  • The general rule for the above mentioned criteria is that all the making up and wet / chemical processing facilities have to be STeP by Oeko-Tex certified.
  • The product must be Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified.

To support the launch of Made in Green, Oeko-Tex has introduced a new consumer website which can be found at www.madeingreen.com; the site enables interested parties to discover more information about the label.

The site will also be available on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
