Bluesign one of the stringent sustainable textile seals

Jan '17
The bluesign label developed by the Switzerland-based Bluesign technologies AG founded in 2000, which is adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers, is one of the most well-known and stringent sustainability seals within the textile industry. The aim is to reduce the environmental footprint along the entire supply chain of the industry.

Companies are subjected to strict testing to certify the quality of the chemical products and textile components they produce, as well as any accessories. If a product is manufactured using bluesign approved components, it is eligible to bear the bluesign product label. The bluesign system is not limited to specific type of raw materials and fibres, nor is it limited to individual stages of production or specific consumer textile products. The bluesign system considers the impact of individual consumer products on people, environment and the consumption of resources.

At least 90 per cent of the textile fabric must be bluesign certified. This particularly includes the inner and outer layers of a piece of clothing, including all prints. Beyond that, at least 30 per cent of all components, including zippers, buttons and embroidery, must be bluesign certified. The bluesign seal excludes the use of polluting substances from the production process from the beginning to ensure that the finished product matches the strictest of consumer protection requirements worldwide.
