It is just as important to them that the items they purchase are safe from harmful substances and produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly way. The consumer has no way of checking either of these requirements while making their purchase – however, with our OEKO-TEX® product labels, we can make these features visible and provide a greater level of safety and transparency.
