"Dear mom, please tell me that you've heard of OEKO-TEX at least once so far. You may often wonder why my skin is irritated and why I get allergies so easily. Well, I found the problem that was bothering me."

I'm sure that lately, everyone has heard at least once something about the subject of OEKO-TEX materials, especially you, like mom. But what exactly are they, what do they mean and how do they differ from other materials?

Well, you must know that it is related to the safety and health of the child, but at the same time to yours. Some fabrics frequently used in textile products can be harmful to the child because there is a high probability that they contain toxic substances that can cause different allergies.

What does OEKO-TEX mean?

OEKO-TEX identifies itself as an international certification system for materials and fabrics, the purpose of which is to ensure that textile products do not contain dangerous chemical substances and are safe for health, both for children and for adults.

The motto used by the founder of the International Association OEKO-TEX is "CONFIDENCE IN TEXTILES" which in translation means "trust in textiles"

But still, is this really how today's clothes have come to be? Or is your child so sensitive? Well, yes and……yes. The skin is a sensitive organ, but at the same time it is protective, being the largest and most widespread organ of the body. However, unfortunately the protection it can offer is limited considering the environmental toxins to which the little ones are exposed in everyday life.

What are these dangerous substances?

Unfortunately, these chemicals are quite varied, and the body's response can differ from child to child (and of course from adult to adult). Through the association OEKO-TEX, these substances have been quantitatively limited or banned definitively.

- azo dyes , completely restricted (some azo dyes have the possibility to release aromatic amine, a substance known for its carcinogenic potential)

- formaldehyde , limited use (chemical substance emitted by some materials, which has the ability to cause different degrees of irritation to the skin and eyes)

- heavy metals , strict limitation (for example cadmium and lead which have toxic effects)

- phthalates , limited use (chemical substances, often used to make more flexible plastic materials)

- chlorinated organic compounds , restricted use (PVC and PVDC that can emit harmful organic compounds)

The cotton

Class 1 fabrics do not refer only to children's clothes, but also to underwear, terry cloth items, bed linen, etc.

If your little one is still a baby, it is recommended that the material worn be 100% cotton because cotton is a natural and non-allergic fiber that will not cause irritation. Due to the unique nature of cotton, products made from it do not remove particles that could trigger asthma attacks or various allergies.

Besides that, cotton is a durable material, resistant over time, especially to wear and frequent washing.

The best types of 100% cotton: rib, interlock, smooth, french terry, terry.


woolen clothes

It is a material that provides warmth but at the same time lets the skin breathe, according to personal needs. It is perfect for your child's cold season clothes, especially if he already goes to grade or school.

The bamboo
