and safety of our products is an unconditional priority for us, which is why
the quality of our products is monitored constantly by our own quality team, external
testing laboratories and our suppliers. We have our own textile laboratory in
Helsinki and fabrics and knits are tested there according to international
standards. Tests are carried out to determine, for example, shrinkage, colour
fastness and abrasion resistance. External testing services are used when
needed, for instance, for testing dry cleaning, light fastness or chemical
residues. Products are also tested in use.
The majority of the fabrics printed in our
own factory in Helsinki are certified according to the Öko-Tex Standard 100, which guarantees
that the materials in question have been tested by an independent third party
and contain no substances harmful to people or the environment as detailed in
the standard criteria. We are also constantly looking for greener chemicals.
