What is Oeko-Tex®?

Oeko-Tex® is a worldwide association of independent institutes for product safety and sustainable production in the textile industry. The standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® is used for testing and certification of textile products.

The criteria are often more strict than judicial standards, and change consecutively according to new results within medical science. Everything is tested. Zippers, buttons, sewing threads, labels, hang tags.. the list goes on! Products from Voksi® are now produced and certified according to product class I – articles for babies and toddlers up to the age of three which have stricter requirements.

Materials in this group are additionally tested for colour fastness and odours.

The process
The certification is both expensive and demanding. As the certification is renewed annually, it requires control in every aspect of the process. Suppliers must cooperate with subcontractors with Oeko-Tex 100 Class 1 products.

A certification is valid for 12 months, and the International Oeko-Tex Association control tests each year at least 25% of all issued certificates by performing sampling.  Oeko-Tex® also controls the product once a year in collaboration with the product owner to make sure it still fulfills the requirements.
