Confidence in fabrics

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is the world’s leading health label for fabrics.

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®



STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is your guarantee that a large number of substances hazardous to health have been excluded or limited in their use.

STANDARD 100 by 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 STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® - 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 STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® labelled.

Goes further than required by law

STANDARD 100 by 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.

The list of substances which are prohibited or limited in STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® labelled products is available on www.oeko-tex.com.
