Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an international testing and certification system that evaluates textiles to ensure that they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 dangerous substances.The testing criteria methods are standardized internationally, and are widely included as guidance in the terms and conditions for purchasing, delivering and selling textiles. Because of its highly reputable testing methods, the Oeko-Tex label is an internationally recognized benchmark for consumers and also serves as a quality assurance tool for manufacturers.
