Why at Ponti Home we use certified textiles

0 comments

Being green and healthy are important values for Ponti Home. Thats why when we choose our suppliers, we ask about the way the textiles are produced and dyed. After extensive research around the world we found that using Oeko-Tex certified textiles is the way to go.

Oeko-Tex is a global certification system that tests textiles for harmful substances and ensures that they are safe for human use. The certification is based on a set of strict standards that were developed by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology (Oeko-Tex). These standards are designed to protect consumers from potentially harmful chemicals and materials that can be found in textiles.

To be Oeko-Tex certified, a textile must meet certain criteria for more than 100 different harmful substances, including heavy metals, formaldehyde, and pesticides. The certification process involves testing the raw materials, as well as the finished product, to ensure that the textiles meet the required standards.

There are several levels of Oeko-Tex certification, including Standard 100, Standard 1000, and Made in Green. Standard 100 is the most well-known and widely recognized level of certification, and it is intended for finished products that come into contact with the skin, such as clothing, bedding, and towels. Standard 1000 is a less stringent version of Standard 100, and it is intended for products that have a lower risk of coming into contact with the skin, such as carpets and upholstery. Made in Green is a new certification that was introduced in 2013, and it is specifically designed for products that are made in environmentally friendly facilities.

There are several benefits to using Oeko-Tex certified textiles. First and foremost, it ensures that the textiles are safe for human use, which is particularly important for products that come into contact with the skin. It also helps to protect the environment by reducing the use of harmful chemicals in the production process. Additionally, it helps to build consumer confidence and trust, as it provides a clear and independent indication that the textiles meet high standards for safety and environmental sustainability.

Overall, Oeko-Tex certification is an important tool for ensuring that textiles are safe and environmentally friendly. By choosing Oeko-Tex certified products for our luxury bedding, Ponti Home ensures its clients can feel confident that they are making a positive contribution to both their own health and the health of the planet.
