Why is it important?
Many of us are not aware that conventional textiles may be coated with toxic chemicals during stages of production, from colouring fabrics to finishing pieces. Toxic clothing will result in skin irritation, asthma, allergy complications, or even cancer, among others. This also means that toxic chemicals are also released into the environment through the production, consumption, and disposal of fabrics, affecting our Mother Nature apart from our health. With the OEKO-TEX® label, the quality standards are an assurance for you that the garments aren’t made of harmful substances nor toxic chemicals.
As the testing and certification process by OEKO-TEX® warrants maximum consumer safety, Kapten Batik is inspired to ensure that our clothing will go through test methods on every single article used in our production.
