Our U.S. based supplier Talalay Global is proud to announce they now have a Class 1 - Approved for Babies Oeko-Tex certification for their entire product line -
The Oeko-Tex 100 standard is concerned primarily with health and safety of textile products.
Textiles considered for this standard are classified into four categories listed below. Our Talalay latex is certified for Class I.
Product Class I: Products for Babies – all textile products and materials used to manufacture such textile products for children up to the age of 36 months (leather clothing is excepted)
Product Class II: Products with Direct Contact to Skin – worn articles of which a large surface touches the skin (i.e. underwear, shirts, pants)
Product Class III: Products without Direct Contact to Skin – articles of which only a small part of their surface touches the skin (i.e. linings, stuffings)
Product Class IV: Decoration Material – this may also be thought of as housewares, as this category includes table cloths, wall coverings, furnishing fabrics, curtains, upholstery fabrics, floor coverings, and mattresses.
