Galanos Company Goes Green!

ΌAll Galanos products carry the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 label. Taking one step further, our company will be the first in its field to gradually have its products carry the Made in Green label, an extremely important certification, especially significant within the EU these days.

Also, our company will be using biodegradable polybags for all of our products. Biodegradable bags can be decomposed by bacteria or other living organism, thus being environmentally friendly.

The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
What does the label mean?
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. The test is conducted by our independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day. Our experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for you.
What products can be certified?
In principle, all textile articles in every stage of processing are suitable for a STANDARD 100 certification, starting from the threads to the finished fabrics and finished articles. According to a modular system we test every single component and ingredient before the final article is allowed to carry the STANDARD 100 label. This includes threads, buttons, zippers and linings. The prints and coatings applied to the outer material are also tested for harmful substances according to the criteria applicable to them.

  • optimisation of chemical management (e.g., risk management during dying and printing, ban and substitution of hazardous chemicals)

  • responsible handling of wastewater and emissions (e.g., reduction of carbon footprint and water usage)
  • protection of resources (e.g., use of renewable energies and best-available technologies)
  • waste management (e.g., recycling of textile waste)
2) Product and consumer safety
  • health safety: testing of products for harmful substances (e.g., carcinogenic dyes, heavy metals, and pesticides)
  • testing of all components of an article, i.e. every threads, buttons and other accessories

  • ban of forced and child labor
  • occupational safety (e.g. through fire protection, building safety and protective equipment)
