Okeo-Tex, Oeko-what?
The 5 responsible choices of Noshirt
3 Things you didn't know about OEKO-TEX
You see all kinds of quality labels and hallmarks in the clothing industry nowadays. The OEKO-TEX label is one just one of them. But because all our shirts, shorts, and socks are OEKO-TEX certified, we would like to explain what that means.
1) WHAT IS OEKO-TEX?
It sounds like something you might find on the exotic food shelf of a supermarket, or the latest social media platform you’ve never heard of. But it is actually something quite important. OEKO-TEX is an environmental hallmark for (amongst other things) textiles. The OEKO-TEX 100 hallmark, for example, means the finished product - for example a piece of clothing - does not contain any harmful substances. That way you know it is not bad for your health or bad for the environment.
2) WHAT DOES AN OEKO-TEX LABEL TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR CLOTHING?
If a garment has an OEKO-TEX label, then you know you can wear it without being contaminated by harmful substances, like pesticides and heavy metals.
3) ARE ALL NOSHIRT PRODUCTS OEKO-TEX CERTIFIED?
Because our undershirts, shorts and socks come into contact with your skin, they have to meet very strict standards before they are awarded an OEKO-TEX label. All our clothing is made using OEKO-TEX certified raw materials, chemicals and processes. That way you know our clothes are safe to wear: they are 100% skin-friendly and have been tested for allergies.
Feels a lot better, right?
