The OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 is a independent system of  testing and certification for textile raw materials, intermediate and end of all processing steps.

 

Carlota barnabe products have the Oeko-Tex 100 Class I certified for material and dyeing.

 

Material and dyeing with Oeko-Tex Class I certificate (textiles for babies and children up to 3 years)

 

Criteria for certification

The verification of harmful substances includes:

- Legally prohibited substances 

- Legally controlled substances 

- Chemicals known to be hazardous to health (but not yet legally regulated) 

- As well as parameters for the protection of health

 

In general the requirements go well beyond national laws.

 

Laboratory tests and product classes 

Verifications of harmful substances Oeko-Tex ® are guided by the actual use of the textile. The more intensively a product comes into contact with skin, more precisely the human and ecological requirements have to be met.

 

There are 4 classes of certification and our material and dyeing are certified as Class I: textiles for babies and children up to 3 years (apparel, toys, bedding, towels...)
