Textile manufacturers, brands, and retailers around the world know that every January there will be an update to the OEKO-TEX test methods and limit values for harmful substances.

This January, the textile industry can expect the same but they will also see the complete roll out of the new cohesive Oeko-Tex branding strategy that was previewed a few months ago. In addition, Oeko-Tex plans to unveil new products in January as well.

The updated Oeko-Tex brand identity kicks off Oeko-Tex’s 25th anniversary, which will be celebrated next year. Founded in 1992 in direct response to public outcry against dangerous chemicals in textiles, the International Oeko-Tex Association has grown to sixteen member textile testing and research institutes with offices in more than 60 countries.
