Confidence in fabrics

Oeko-Tex is the world’s leading health label for fabrics.


Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is your guarantee that a large number of substances hazardous to health have been excluded or limited in their use.

Oeko-Tex is the world's leading health labelling of textiles. The standard has been an international benchmark for safety throughout the entire textile chain since 1992.

95% of Gabriel textiles bear the Oeko-Tex label - with more to come.

Respect for the health is an indispensable demand for Gabriel during all phases of our products' lifecycle. We have focused on this area for many years and are making every effort to have the rest of our product range Oeko-Tex labelled.

Goes further than required by law

Oeko-Tex goes further than required by law, and with stricter requirements than similar labels within the area of health hazards. These requirements concern the content of chemicals which can, or which are suspected of being able to, cause skin irritation, allergy, cancer, damage to the nervous system and internal organs, and reproductive ability.

The requirements are regularly updated and adapted to the latest research within medical knowledge and developments in the textile sector. The requirements are the same throughout the world - a necessity because of the differences which exist in statutory requirements and concepts of safety in different countries.
