Cone Denim of the US, a global leader in denim authenticity and innovation has announced that its Cone Denim Jiaxing (CDJ) facility has received Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification on selected denim products.

Located in China’s Zhejiang Province, the CDJ facility is a state-of-the-art vertically integrated denim fabric operation known for its performance and premium denims, it said in a statement.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification provides transparency in the textile supply chain and assures consumers that certified products have been produced without the use of illegal, regulated or other known harmful substances. Its “Confidence in Textiles” motto designates independent testing for harmful substances for textile products of all types which pose no risk to health since 1992.

“Oeko-Tex certification provides our customers and ultimately the consumer an added level of confidence in CDJ’s fabrics,” said Kevin Reardon, vice president of sales Cone Denim. “We maintain a commitment to responsible manufacturing throughout our global operations and continually look for ways to improve our sustainable practices and minimize our environmental footprint – while at the same time pushing the limits of denim innovation and styling.”

The CDJ operation opened in 2007 and has produced industry-leading denims, both rigid and stretch, including S-Gene products with high performance, patented technology exclusively from Cone Denim.

The plant is strategically located in Jiaxing, contributing to Cone’s long-term strategy of providing customers with innovative and market-driven denims and services from a comprehensive global network of manufacturing platforms. Certified labs and proprietary process control systems are central to producing high quality fabrics with exceptional shade and physical consistency. (SH)
