Certifications and labels
We have various certifications for our products. They require strict compliance with the highest standards. All of these specifications and tests help us achieve the premium quality required to meet our standards and also satisfy our customers.
To receive the Oeko-Tex® label, every part of a product (lace, fabric, thread, hooks, eyelets, tape, etc.) must meet the criteria. That means our products are free from banned and regulated contaminants as well as hazardous chemicals. Moreover, the pH value is tested for its skin-friendliness and the colour authenticity of each item is verified.
As a result, our customers can count on purchasing an impeccable product.

Moreover, varying degrees of perspiration are simulated and tests are conducted to measure heat insulation and drying time along with whether the textile feels scratchy or damp against the skin.
