OEKO-TEX Standard 100 offers certified suppliers database

Nov '13
Around 10,000 companies from over 90 countries and at all levels of the value-creation chain currently participate in OEKO-TEX Standard 100 product certification.

When searching for suitable suppliers, the production facilities, purchasing organisations and retailers have at their disposal an extensive network of manufacturers from around the world who can offer a range of textiles in every conceivable quality for the most diverse of fields of application - with the added benefit that these textiles are proven to be harmless.

By using the "OEKO-TEX Buying Guide" interested companies can access this international company network, which is in the form of an interactive database with different search filters, directly and without charge.

The available selection options include, for example, the type of OEKO-TEX certification, the OEKO-TEX product class, as well as a search by world regions. In addition, you can search specifically for individual product levels and required product materials. Based on these primary search criteria, the selection can be refined using additional filters. For example, with world regions, specific countries can be selected.

The product level (e.g. "Fabrics" or "Ready-made goods") can be further refined by the type of product searched for (e.g. "Knitted fabric", "Woven fabric" or "Non-woven") and usage ("e.g. "Outer wear" or "Furnishings").

A free text search also enables you to search for additional product specifications or known company names. As the companies can also store additional product information and a company profile in any language in their Buying Guide entry, for example, to address specific target markets, the selection of displayed language version for the OEKO-TEX website can also be used as an additional search filter.

The search results are displayed in a list arranged alphabetically by company name. By clicking on the displayed companies, you access an information page which lists all data required to make direct contact, for example, the telephone number, email address, contact and the web address.

The information on the OEKO-TEX-certified articles is clearly shown according to the respective product level, their usage and also the material from which they are made.

If the companies have stored additional information in the detail view such as a company profile, product images or photos from production, their OEKO-TEX-certified brands, specifications of the articles on offer or web links to individual products and/or sales outlets etc., this provides additional transparency for the user of the Buying Guide and illustrates their global network.

Particularly outstanding companies are also much more visible in the Online Buying Guide: For example, with the award of "OEKO-TEX Company of the Month" with a corresponding promotional logo or with the additional display of a successful STeP certification which indicates the companies' proven focus on greater sustainability in production. It's worth having a look!
