Fantasias Miguel selects OEKO-TEX for quality + safety

Fantasias Miguel, a leading manufacturer of decorative findings for the worldwide apparel and fashion accessories markets, has been awarded OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification for its collection of PET foils and Endless Sequins. These decorative products are made with polyester and dyed with natural minerals and pigments.

They have been tested by OEKO-TEX to ensure they do not contain harmful levels of more than 100 dangerous chemicals such as lead, formaldehyde, or phthalates. Fantasias Miguel's manufacturing facilities have also been audited for compliance with OEKO-TEX technical requirements.

"OEKO-TEX is recognized globally as a mark of safe textile products,” says Leticia Izquierdo of Fantasias Miguel. “OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification assures our customers that our products are of the highest quality, will not harm their consumers, and are in full compliance with EU and American regulations like REACh and CPSIA.”

Fantasias Miguel's proprietary polyester Endless Sequins are designed especially for use with highly automated and computerized sewing machines. Manufactured in Mexico, these products are washable and dry cleanable and come in a wide variety of finishes and shapes.

“Fantasias Miguel exemplifies commitment to quality and safety, both in their facilities and in their products,”says Dr. Sam Moore who represents OEKO-TEX in North America and conducted the factory audits. “And because these products are OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, it's much easier for the apparel and fashion accessories brands that chose Fantasias Miguel polyester sequins and foils to become OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified themselves.”

Headquartered in Mexico City and founded in 1965, Fantasias Miguel is a leading distributor and retailer of decorative products for the apparel, fashion accessories, jewelry, floral arts, and hobbies and crafts industries.
