BY USING THE BEST AND MOST EXCLUSIVE YARNS, WE ENSURE THAT THESE ARE OEKO TEX CERTIFIED.
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. This also includes compliance with the prohibited substances such as AZO colorants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc. Our articles are free from this type of colorant.
The precondition for the certification of products in accordance with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria – in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non-textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.
We source our cotton from all over Africa and South America. The best thing about this natural fiber: it is lightweight, absorbent and elastic. Especially for our shirts, this is a positive side effect because cotton fabrics are also extremely skin-friendly and have a high wearing comfort. These characteristics make cotton to one of our favorite fibers.
The Merino is an economically influential breed of sheep prized for its wool and is the so-called functional fiber of nature. In addition to the scratch-free pleasant feel, it has unique characteristics that are perfectly suited to our clothing: odorless, insulating, easy to clean and still sustainable. Merino wool has a self-cleaning function due to the natural wool fat.
A sheep produces 5-7 kilograms of wool per year, which is enough for 6 wool sweaters. Similar to human hair, a wool fiber is made of keratin. Because of the scale-like structure of the surface wool fibers reject water. It is soft, elastic, and slippery, and is used in high-grade textiles.
