Madeira sets Industry Standard for safe embroidery thread

Madeira, a global leader in the production of embroidery thread for the decorated apparel and home fashion markets, relies on the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 to guarantee that its products are safe for humans. The company's Classic Rayon, 100% polyester Polyneon, FS/Supertwist, and wool-blend Burmilana threads are all certified as free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances that are known to be dangerous to people and to the environment.

“We have provided the Oeko-Tex guarantee to our clients for many years,” says Hajo Voeller, Madeira USA's president. “Now our clients in the USA recognize the importance of textile safety and are requesting embroidery threads that meet the highest international standards. We assure them that our Oeko-Tex certified threads deliver a comprehensive and verifiable safety guarantee that they can pass on to their ustomers.”

Dr. Manfred Wentz, US Director for Oeko-Tex confirms the growth in safety textile awareness. “Decorators in the USA are reacting to consumers' demands for safe textiles in their apparel and their homes. Madeira, a long time Oeko-Tex certificate holder, has been a provider of safe textile products for many years and sets a high standard for other suppliers to the decorated textile market.”

The International Oeko-Tex Association's 14 independent facilities test textile products for substances that are prohibited and regulated by law, as well as for chemicals that are known to be harmful to humans, but are not yet regulated. The Oeko-Tex restricted substance list (RSL), which is updated annually to reflect the latest in international textile chemistry, includes unsafe chemicals such as formaldehyde, pesticides, and arcinogenic dyestuffs. Textile products that receive Oeko-Tex certification are guaranteed not to contain harmful amounts of these or other dangerous elements.
