At Salts & West Clothing, we are proud to say that our made in Canada clothing items are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified to ensure that they are Non Toxic. You're probably thinking, "Great, but what exactly does it mean?". By definition, Oeko-Tex is "the best known and most widespread test label worldwide for textiles tested for harmful substances." Okay, let us break it down for you. Oeko-Tex Certification is a system that is used to make sure textile products, like Salts & West clothing, do not contain any harmful chemicals.
All of our blends of fabric are OKEO-TEX Standard certified dyed. This means that our fabrics have been tested to ensure that they have NO traces of harmful chemicals. Our organic cotton fabrics are also third party certified through a GOTS certificate (more on this certificate next week)!
