OEKO-TEX® Standard 100

Oeko Tex Logo

The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is a certification
system for textile raw, intermediate and end products at all stages of
processing.
Examples of articles that can be certified: yarns, fabrics, treated fabrics, manufactured articles (clothing of all
kinds, domestic and household textiles, bedding, towels, soft toys, mattresses and many more) and is totally independent.

What are products tested for?

The tests for harmful substances cover
 legally banned and controlled substances
 chemicals known to be harmful to the health (but not yet legally controlled)
 parameters for health protection
Taken in their entirety, the requirements go far beyond existing national legislation.

We think this is a marvellous system as we all become more aware of the harmful effects of chemicals we come into daily contact with it`s great to find an organisation like OEKO-TEX® who will give you the confidnece that there are no harmful substances in the products you are buying for your family.

As far as we are aware there is no UK based mattress manufacturer making mattresses to the excating criteria of OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 so we chose to import the superb Relaxsan range made by Alessanderx S.p.A of Italy.
