Eco-textiles

Eco-textiles concept is mainly from "OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100",which is published by the International Association for Research and Testing ecological textile in 1991, which emphasizes the waste disposal after use , the production process , product harmless. "Oeko-Tex" and the EU's "Eco-Label" are the most influential certification for ecological textile. China also issued a national standard GB / T 18885-2002 " ecological textile technical requirements ." on November 22, 2002.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 standard ,as the world 's most widely influential eco- textile standards,is about hazardous substances testing and certification for various textile and related products to ensure products harmless . Oeko-Tex Standard 100 regulated the limit of harmful substances in the yarn , textile fibers and Oeko-Tex labeling only can be used after testing and certification according to Oeko-Tex standards. Since 1992,Oeko-Tex Standard 100 would be re-accessed the control requirement ,mostly according to existing regulation of hazardous substance in countries and regions,and the new version will be issued at the beginning of every year, which is updated to 2013 version now.

Scope: Textile fibers , yarns and various textiles (including garments, home textiles ) , this standard is not mandatory standard , commonly used for the recommended standards for exporting country.

With huge demand from consumers and high requirement on quality, a quick professional testing solution is necessary,not only for leather manufacturers, but also for product designers and sourcing companies.
