Ecotex is a certification for textile and clothing products that ensures they have been manufactured in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible way.
The certification is awarded by the Ecotex Standard Institute, which is based in Germany.
To receive the certification, a product must meet a set of standards that cover the entire production process, from the sourcing of raw materials to the final manufacturing process.
These standards include requirements for the use of environmentally friendly dyes and chemicals, energy and water conservation, waste management, and fair labor practices.
Ecotex certification is widely recognized in the European market as one of the most rigorous environmental and social standards for textile and clothing products.
