Ensuring Harmless Clothing

Ensuring Harmless Clothing

Quality clothing starts with the details. To ensure that every component of our garments are safe for human health, we have set our product standards to be OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified.

OEKO-TEX® is the world’s certification for textiles tested for harmful substances. Each garment component has been tested for harmful substances and declared safe; therefore aligned with our standard of quality at Original Favorites.

Quality clothing starts with the details. To ensure that every component of our garments are safe for human health, we have set our product standards to be OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified. This certification gives the customer trust in the quality of their clothing down to every thread. Each garment component has been tested for harmful substances and declared safe; therefore aligned with our standard of quality.


Certification of Every Component

From the coating on the zippers to the print that is on the garment, every component goes through the testing process to ensure its safety. With everything that goes into producing garments, it is imperative that all apparel components are examined when going the extra step to give the consumer confidence and accreditation of quality. This ensures that no part of the garment is harmful to human or environmental health.


Why It Matters

Unfortunately, the dyeing process of clothing can use harmful substances such as formaldehyde. The OEKO-TEX® certification is designed to ensure that the result of apparel dyeing and wet-processing does not have a negative effect on human or environmental health. This ensures that garments are safe for manufacturers, consumers, and the environment.

OEKO-TEX® certificates are exclusively issued by neutral and independent testing institutes. Their strict test criteria is globally standardized and updated annually based on new scientific information or statutory requirements.

Why It Matters

This Certification standard gives the customer confidence in their products, high product safety, and trust. Customer confidence is highly important as a product is only as good as the consumer feels about the product itself. High product safety is the standard we want to set ourselves to and that is why making sure we go the extra mile and being fully certified by a globally recognized certification is key to guaranteeing our products’ safety. Our trust between our customers is the sole reason we seek to prove our claims. We always want to make sure there is a level of trust between our customers and our products and OEKO-Tex is what helps us create that foundation. This certification aligns us with our values and the quality we want our products to be at.

The Importance of Non Toxic

The sad reality is that many of the garments that are produced use residual dyes, hazardous chemicals, heavy metals, microfibers, and mordants to help bond dyes with fabric. Many of these synthetic dyes, specifically azo dyes, are carcinogenic. Azo dyes are water-soluble making them easy for skin to absorb and, as a result, may cause skin and eye irritation.

Even though most countries have banned these toxic dyes, there are still parts of the world that still use these in production to support the high demand of fast fashion. Many countries can’t access clean drinking or bathing water because of the contamination caused by harmful dyes. This effect of apparel production is obviously very harmful and not sustainable, which leads us to be different and prioritize safety.
